Blake comes off as a genuine person who truly loves this stuff. I look forward to these episodes every week because you never know who will be on next. Keep up the awesome work sir!
Blake is an amazing interviewer and gets some really interesting and inspiring people. If you want to hear some great talks about music and gear - check out The Tone Mob!
Been listening to this podcast for several years. Blake continually ups his game with more content, great variety of guests, and informative conversations
I’ve been listening for 4ish years now. It’s been so fun listening to Blake grow as an interviewer. He has an innate knack of being relatable, but he’s turned into the Edward R. Murrow (and not just for his sign-off) and Barbara Walters of the gear world. His conversations are fun, deep, funny, serious, ridiculous, inspiring, expertly walking a line between steering the interviewee and being led by the interviewee. Worth a weekly listen, and absolutely worth signing up for the paid bonus content.
I've been listening for a couple years. My favorite Boss pedal is the RV-6 and my favorite pizza is Little Ceasers Yep Little Ceasers.
Always enjoyable. We’ll with a listen/subscription.
Came here to say that I love my DOES IT DOOM pedal and loved hearing about the background into them. Great guests.
If you’re in to gear this is the podcast for you! So many awesome guests, great topics, and the occasional off topic banter. This podcast has top tiered people in the industry to people you might not have heard of and everything in between. Awesome podcast and I’m so excited to see where it goes from here!
I saw someone post that they reviewed and I remembered I hadn’t reviewed so here it is!
I have been listening to this Podcast for the past 4 years. It’s always fun and informative. Blake is an excellent host and curator who knows to balance and also get meaningful questions pertaining to the guest vs canned this what we ask everyone. RIYL Guitars, Musicans, and pedals. 🎛🎛🎛
Blake does a nice job of of providing timely information about the world of effects while exposing listeners to artists off the beaten path.
Blake does a great job and it’s a great community he’s building through the podcast. -Chris M.
One of my top five podcasts, to learn about guitars, pedals and gear. The show not only covers guitar pedal makers, but also regularly has working musicians, who share their perspectives on performing, creativity and the gear they use. I have discovered several musicans and bands through this podcast, that I probably wouldn't have heard of. And of course, on every show, Blake uncovers what everyone has a hunger to know... the guests favorite pizza. How can you go wrong with this podcast? Blake is a great host, very knowledgeable and also interjects a little humor.
I’m fairly new to listening to Podcasts and the guitar scene, but if you want a weekly dose of both, Blake delivers. The interviews he brings provides not only a look into the gear, but the back story behind how the guest came to the sound/tone they produce. If you are looking for something solid concerning all things guitar (and pizza), give the Tone Mob episodes a listen.
This podcast is great once I fast forward through the first four minutes of super annoying and unprofessional commercials. If those were better scripted and less awkward, it would be 5 stars.
It’s simple. If you love guitar, effects pedals, or amps then you’ll love this podcast.
Blake Wyland’s “The Tone Mob” is the first podcast to really catch my undying interest. A few years in and it remains as my go to, week to week. The primary focus is guitar, gear and of course great tone and means of achieving it. The casual dialogue with industry pros keeps it approachable and personable. The curveball questions maintain a fresh edge. I have to say that Blake has really upped his game this year with an evergreen roster of killer guests. Perspectives from the working musicians and the creators who make the gear they love is pretty cool in my book! ~m
After hearing Blake on The Mike Herrera podcast, I have been addicted to this Pod. I have never paid attention to what I was playing, I always bought what sounded good. After him geek out on guitar set-ups and pedals , I now find myself geeking out to. I love to hear how everyone sets up their gear.
If your looking for a podcast that’s mainly about the love of bro country, the hatred of pedals, and the defense of pineapple on pizza than this podcast is not for you! Blake is a super informative, super chill, super honest podcast host. His interview style is engaging, informative, and fun. His guest are the people you want to hear from giving you the insider and behind the scenes look of your favorite gear companies. If your a fan of pizza, pedals, and personality than the tone mob is the podcast for you. You the man Mr Wyland
I love this podcast. I've been listening since episode 1 of the interviews. There has been a bit of an evolution in audio quality, but still the same old Blake that I have come to really appreciate. He's a guy that I'd love to hang out with myself (DM me if you are in the OH/PA area Blake :)). The talk is not always gear related, but like he says, it's about the people behind the tone. Also, you never know what might come up during a cast (give the OBN interview a listen). I always find myself jonesing for the next episode, and I think that is a good indicator that this podcast is worth giving a listen. Keep up the good work Blake.
This is a nice “pedals! Oh look, squirrel!, and pizza...” kinda pace with excellent content and a creative style. I have to say though, there is a divisive issues of the boss pineapple pizza jelly and joyo beer and wheat thins pizza crisps combo not being ok with everyone. Very love/hate! That said, love the podcast, it’s worth your time and you should share it! - Jim
A solid, down to earth podcast that’s relatable and covers the gamut of the artists, gear, and pizza.
Blake is a great interviewer and all around great dude. His guests are very open and he does a great job getting details but also the big picture.
This is a great podcast to listen to if you just want to find out what musicians or people behind guitar gear brands are like in real life. It's not about selling their laatest album, pedal, etc. It's just a friendly conversation about music, gear, food, Oregon, how gross mayonaisse is, history, why amps should never be replaced by mini computers, fuzz pedals, white sauces being an abomination, band dynamics, other podcasts, etc, etc, etc. Give it a shot, it's a comfortable feeling podcast.
Blake is the man! I look forward to the show every week. I love hearing the stories of so many people in the guitar and gear industries. Also, pineapple has no place on pizza!
