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 270: The Gear Business w/ Scott from Stringjoy

Starting a pedal (or any other kind of guitar gear) company this day and age can be a very daunting. Scott Marquart has taken on one of the most difficult product categories in the industry and has seen great success with that. Not only that, but he is my partner in practically every business endeavor outside of this podcast. He is a super sharp dude, and I thought he would be the perfect guest to have a more "business focused" episode...
