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 388: The Weirdest Thing Happened In 2023

It is officially a tradition now! My dude Dewey from the Peer Pleasure Podcast is back on for our annual Year In Review. We dive right in and discuss the WEIRDEST things that happened while we were recording the podcast this year, and trust me when I say there are some really, really weird things that guests have done while recording. Squirrels, clock mechanics, "hitting them where they ain't" and well... I don't want to spoil it. This is a good one...

episode 387: Tape Loops & Guitars w/ Amulets

Randall Taylor (better known as Amulets) is a Portland based musician who is well known for his very unique approach to ambient/post rock. He records to tape loops and manually manipulates the loops in real time while playing guitar. Its a fascinating process and produces textures unlike anything you've ever heard. He's also a super cool and fascinating dude! We had an excellent chat and I think you are really going to enjoy it. Dive on in! Check him out on his website HERE: http://www...

episode 386: KNOW YOUR GEAR! (Phil McKnight Interview)

Phil McKnight is one of the most popular content creators in the guitar gear space. He's been spreading his knowledge of gear on YouTube for around a decade now, and yet... There is still a LOT that people don't know about Phil himself. So we dive into the Phil McKnight story pretty heavily on this episode and uncover how all of this unfolded for him. It's a pretty crazy story that not very many people know, so give this a listen and enjoy! Subscribe to Phil's channel on YouTube: https://www...

episode 385: Wanna Come Backstage? pt 2 (Calder Allen @ FareWell Fest)

I had the opportunity to sit down with singer/songwriter Calder Allen when I was at Fairwell Fest over the summer. This dude didn't start writing until 2020 and he is already churning out some really incredible stuff. It's a quick one, but we had a really cool conversation about his story, fly fishing and a whole lot more. Enjoy! Check out Calder on his website HERE: https://www.calderallen...

episode 384: Wanna Come Backstage? (Brook & The Bluff @FareWell Fest)

On this Fairwell Fest conversation, I sat down with The Band The Brook And The Bluff. Unlike most episodes, on this one I'm talking to the WHOLE BAND! These Fairwell Fest episodes are recorded in the "green room area' of the festival and it is a much different environment than I'm accustomed to, and I was running around like a maniac for the whole weekend. So you'll notice the vibe is slightly different, but not in a bad way...

Barry is back on the podcast! Barry builds some of my favorite guitars ever, but he isn't just an expert luthier. Barry is an real deal acoustician by trade and has a vast array of experience managing, creating, and controlling sound in almost any environment imaginable. On this episode we talk about his transition to building guitars full time, and some of his more challenging builds as an acoustical consultant...

episode 382: Creating By Committee? - Taylor Larson of Mixwave

Does producing music work when there are a significant number of "cooks in the kitchen?" Can more brains on a project lead to a better outcome? Or does the result become a shadow of the former concept? Taylor and I dive into all of that, plus some REALLY exciting updates from the land of Mixwave, we talk in depth about his recent obsession with vintage guitars, "in-the-box" vs "out-of-the" box mixing, and a whole lot more!

episode 381: Whats The Deal With Atmos? w/ Colt Capperune Part Deux

Colt Capperune is an incredibly talented music producer in Nashville, TN. This is his second appearance on the podcast and we recorded this at Sweetwater during Gearfest 2023. We are a bit delirious, but that sometimes that makes for the best episodes! Grills, lawn mowing, pellet smokers, and WHAT THE HECK IS GOING ON WITH DOLBY ATMOS???? We get into it, and I think you are going to like it! Make sure you check out his YouTube channel HERE :

episode 380: "I Don't Wanna Play Acoustic Guitar Dad..." w/ Spilly Cave

Spilly Cave is a fantastic guitarist, composer, video creator, and as it turns out... an EXCELLENT conversationalist. I met Spilly (Billy) through him becoming a Stringjoy artist, and just loving the music he makes after I discovered it. This dude spent multiple years posting videos EVERYDAY before he actually gained traction publicly, and we discuss his mindset/approach during that timeframe. He's not a serious gear head, but he has developed a VERY unique sound nonetheless...

If so, you are going to have a SERIOUS reaction.) Ian and I talk about balancing work life and Dad life while on tour, his signature pedal with RUDETECH, lefty guitars, and a whole lot more.  Give Ian a follow on his Instagram HERE:  Check out all things Aquabats on their website HERE: https://www...
