Description

Welcome to the Chasing Tone Podcast. Join Brian Wampler, Blake Wyland, Travis Feaster, Max Jeffreys and other guests as they talk about guitars, guitar pedals, amps, and other guitar gear, answer questions, and discuss all things guitar related as well as how to get the most out of your gear to get the best guitar tone. While this podcast is paid for by Wampler, we talk about many other brands much more than we do Wampler products. If you suffer from G.A.S. or just simply like to listen to gear podcasts, you'll love Chasing Tone.
