The Tone Mob Podcast

The year was 2015. Show host Blake Wyland intended to start a podcast where he took a deep dive with his guests from the guitar world to explain their rigs. What happened was that, but also a whole lot more. The show quickly evolved into discussions about people's lives. Guitars, pedals, amps, etc. are the central hub of the show, but it really is more about the PEOPLE behind all of it. Both the musicians who use the gear, and the folks that create these magical tools of expression. You can expect chats about songwriting, favorite bands, family, loss, addiction, conspiracy theories, philosophy, and most of all....... food. This podcast goes all over the place. Come take a ride.


episode 317: Dumble Drama w/ Taylor of Amplified Nation

What is the deal with Dumble Amplifiers? What is it about these guitar amplifiers that cause so much of a stir amongst us guitar geeks? Is the Overdrive Special really magical? Is a Steel String Singer deserving of it's legendary status?

Taylor Cox is the man behind Amplified Nation, which is one of the best known companies selling "Dumble style" amplifier companies in the musical instrument industry. On this episode we dissect some of the mystique around Dumble amplifiers, talk extensively about the difficulties that come with running a small guitar gear business, get some insights into amp manufacturing, and a whole lot more!

I think you'll really enjoy this one. Taylor was a treat to talk to. Check out his work at his website
