214 - “Tone Tips” Is it better to use an amp when running direct in? A comparison using Impulse Responses
467
It's very convenient running direct in, whether late night recording, practicing at home, or gigging at church or a club. In this special “Tone Tips” episode of Chasing Tone, Brian compares running direct in with pedals into an amp (using a Two Notes Captor) versus running direct in with pedals only.

PLEASE NOTE: You never want to run direct into your DAW or soundboard from the speaker output unless your amp has an output made for this reason..

You practice at home and dial your tone in and it sounds great. But at practice or at the gig, it sounds totally different in the mix. Can scooping the mids help the situation? Brian and Blake discuss the options.

Instagram has become the place to showcase your rig. But has the need to "look good" and get likes taken over the need to "sound good" and have a practical pedalboard? The guys talk about it.

Does the podcast have a jingle? Is "Bro Country" just an American thing? Is Goat Yoga coming to Wampler Farms? All this and more in this week's Chasing Tone Podcast.

2098
Blakes back from Fear the Riff in NYC and Brian is land locked by a local community festival. Seems like a good time to do a podcast.

Brian recently went to a Garth Brooks show. That takes Blake down memory lane to his third grade talent show and makes Brian relive his first country audition.

Blake talks about his mini pedal board. Consistency in practicing with the band and what can happen when it falls off. Why do Boss pedals get so much hate? And parades can really screw up your plans. All in this episode of Chasing Tone.

180 - Suggested Settings and Making the Most of Alone time with your Guitar
2775
Blake joins Brian in this week’s podcast. Common question with no common answer. “Suggested settings” to get “that” tone. Is there a baseline? Is there a true “this is that sound setting” that works for every player? The guys talk about it.

Their is a gear show coming up in NYC. Who is going and what is it about?

The workday is done, your significant other is off doing what they do and you find yourself alone with your guitar and your amp. How do you spend that “Golden Time”? Brian and Blake share their ideas..

And Brian is starting a new gear company. Much more straightforward approach with an interesting choice to run the brand. You will get to meet Oakland Hillsberry.

2464
Our Wampler teammate, brother in arms, grumpy friend from across the pond, Jason Wilding joins Brian for this weeks tone adventure.

So we here at Wampler put a lot of thought and strategy into releasing a new pedal. From social media to demos and the like, it should be a fine oiled machine. But when someone outside our control decides to release a pedal early? Brian and Jason share their frustration and how they are handling it.

Jason took the new Paisley Drive Deluxe to a gig. He shares what he experienced, and his bandmates’ reactions.

Brian explains how his battles with airlines to get his guitar stowed safely hardly ever goes well. Even armed with the law, the airlines don’t care.

A small cameo by Jason’s wife Lisa, Tom Quayle can get salty, Brian is a Jim Carrey fan, Jason is the filth dictionary, and why the world can’t end just yet. All in this episode of Chasing Tone.

We talked to -

Dave Friedman - Friedman

Bruce Egnater - Egnater Amplification

Joe Morgan - Morgan Amplification

Josh Scott - JHS Pedals

Roger Smith - Source Audio

Aen Hinz - Dwarfcraft Devices

Brian Neunaber - Neunaber Audio Effects

177 - Tone Tips - Suggested Pedal Settings: IGNORE them! A test with 6 amps & 3 pedals
1163
One of the most common questions we get through our website is this: "How should I set my _____ pedal to get the sound from this song ______ ?”

Unfortunately, that's something that we can't really answer. It depends on a myriad of different things including but not limited to what amp you're playing, how you have it set, what guitar you're playing, how loud you're playing, and that's not even taking into account the playing style... as there is indeed alot to be said for "tone is in the fingers".

In this special Tone Tips edition of Chasing Tone, Brian takes three pedals, the Boss SD-1 Super Overdrive, the Nobels ODR-1 Overdrive, and the Proco Rat Distortion, sets them all the exact same, and plays through 6 totally different amps.

However, with that said, we do of course offer a "starting point" for different sounds in our own manuals but it's just a point of reference. Sound is more complicated than knob settings. ;)

Of course, even though it's a clickbaity title, there are indeed exceptions. Delays and reverbs for example are a little easier to predict how to set to get certain tones and sounds, but dirt pedals? That's a different animal.

Also, Brian was incorrect about the Nobels, looks like they are about $100 now. You can find them on amazon though: http://amzn.to/2jpzO4S

172 - Should you gig with a headstock tuner?
2215
Tuners are very necessary. Some use a pedal and some use a headstock tuner. But would you leave that on your guitar throughout a gig? Is it wrong to do so? Brian and Blake have strong opinions on the subject.

Brian got away from it all for a few days of outdoor fun with his son. This meant he was “off the grid” for several days. Needless to say, his inbox was a bit full. Was it worth it? Brian will answer that. (And your emails…eventually)

Pedal rental services. Brian points out a very useful purpose for them and how you can benefit.

And retargeting ads and the smart musician. How to effectively use this marketing technique to get your music to more people.

1137
Everyone knows the the mystical 4558 op-amp IC chip is responsible for the best overdrive tones right? I mean, even Stevie Ray insisted on it in his pedals, am I right? Right?! Joking aside, I dive through several popular op-amp IC chips and let you hear what each one sounds like in the context of Guitar Overdrive Pedal Circuitry. Well, not every one out there, but some popular ones... from $.20 IC chips to $10 versions of the popular Operational Amplifier Integrated Circuit chip. And just for kicks and giggles, I'll show you the difference between several types of diodes, and the difference when running it as a soft clipping overdrive to a hard clipping distortion. Sounds like fun, eh? Oh, and I realize the title is a little click-baity. But it's all in fun, am I right?

152 - Where should you set your amp and pedal knobs for "perfect tone"?

149 - Reviewing the Mimiq Doubler Pedal from TC Electronics
451
Normally, Brian doesn't do reviews of other company's guitar pedals. Even more odd is for him to review another company's pedal. However, recently he broke that streak and had some fun with the Mimiq Doubler effect pedal from TC Electronics.

It's a very cool effect if you are running stereo. If you're in a praise and worship band and going direct in, you'd be crazy NOT to have this in your arsenal. It's also highly effective if you run two different amps as well. It's true potential shines when you run it in stereo, so if you use it in mono with just one amp the effect won't be the same.

Brian is using a Rat pedal from Proco and a Torpedo C.A.B. from Two Notes for this demo.

Some artists are experiencing great success without the benefit of radio air play. As the landscape of the industry shifts, and outlets diversify will we still see any more Taylor Swift type mega stars?

129 - "Tone Tips" Does Wah go before or after distortion?
275
In this podcast I'm discussing wah pedal placement. I'll show you some sound examples and you make the decision for yourself. Me personally? I like it before distortion. I'm using a Vox Wah and a Boss DS-1 distortion. Why the DS-1 and not a Wampler? Because I don't want these podcasts to be a commercial for Wampler stuff. My goal is to bring YOU value, and provide content that helps you regardless of whether you buy our pedals or not. Enjoy the podcast, and leave a comment below if you'd like.

127 - "Tone Tips" Breathing new life into a Fender Blues Jr amp
1081
Brian recently got his hands on a Tweed Fender Blues Jr. Not a big fan of the stock speaker. Sounds too "boxy" to his ears. So he took the opportunity to demonstrate how changing speakers can make a difference in the sound of the amp.

Another quick way to get better tone out of an amp is with an EQ pedal. Brian shows what difference that can make as well.

Sep 09, 2016
126 - Do we get TOO caught up in new guitar gear?
1988
You see something shiny on the interwebs and have to have it. So, you get it.. but then there is something new/better/shinier/warmer/cooler available that's guaranteed to make you sound better because hey, that Pete Thorn (or insert your favorite youtube demo-er here) video sounded A-MAZING, and you have to havethat, so the old piece of gear that you loved last week takes a back seat. Sound familiar? Brian and Blake talk about it.

You would be surprised just how many prototypes Brian makes to produce a Wampler pedal.

It is easy to look at a schematic and say "That's a tubescreamer" based on its components, but that may not always be accurate. The guys explain why.

And you hear this sort of comment quite a bit: "Hendrix or SRV didn't need all this gear to get their sound." It is a conversation worth having, so we did.

Sep 06, 2016
125 - "Tone Tips" 30 Something pedal vs. Vox AC30/AC15
631
We're doing a new special segment, called "Tone Tips". These segments are a bit shorter in nature, and feature tips about getting better done, and demonstrating them.

For years I had always wanted the ability to be able to show up to a gig with my Blackface amp (which I preferred with overdrive pedals), but I wanted a Vox-y chimey type of clean tone when necessary. I worked on different variations of circuits over the years, trying to achieve this. Finally, I hit upon it. That circuit became the Ace 30, which then became the 30 Something. Why the name change? Long story.

Anyway, the 30 Something pedal really excels at being what Lotus Pedals coined "an Underdrive". Yes, it can get a bit gainy, but using it as a clean platform is where it shines. It also works very well when you stack other overdrives into it, getting a sound very similar to what it would be like if you ran that pedal into those British style chimey amps.

So in this special episode of The Chasing Tone Podcast we bring you a demonstration of a Vox AC-30, AC-15, and a deluxe reverb with and without the 30 Something.

Aug 09, 2016
120 - A rant on ethics in the pedal business
1966
Issues of fairness and standards affect any trade and the guitar gear world has seen some issues of late. Brian and Blake take a serious look at the ethics practices in the guitar pedal industry.

If your company has failed your customers, is there a chance for redemption? What steps must you take to put your transgressions behind you and repair your company's reputation?

And why are gear reviews "soft" on criticism? Brian has an interesting take on the issue.

Why are some clones accepted but others are scoffed at? Is there a legitimate reason for this reaction?

All this and a money back guarantee.
