Came here to say that I love my DOES IT DOOM pedal and loved hearing about the background into them. Great guests.

One of the best guitar and gear related podcast!

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 wrote a review cause I saw another guy do it on the Facebook page

I saw someone post that they reviewed and I remembered I hadn’t reviewed so here it is!

Great Podcast for Creatives and Gearheads

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. 🎛🎛🎛

5 stars

Excellent podcast by Blake.


Great podcast! Blake is awesome. I have it on good authority that he’s a decent brusher.

Interesting and Diverse

Blake does a nice job of of providing timely information about the world of effects while exposing listeners to artists off the beaten path.

Great interviews with interesting range of musicians

Blake does a great job and it’s a great community he’s building through the podcast. -Chris M.

One of my favorite guitar gear podcasts

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.

Enjoy your 100

Great content

For the tone...

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.

Often great content.

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.

My Favorite podcast

It’s simple. If you love guitar, effects pedals, or amps then you’ll love this podcast.


This is the podcast to listen to if you like guitar pedals and food.

Love the Mob

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

New to tones

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.

The Tone Mob

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

No Title Needed

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.

Hmmmmmm.... guitar tone pizza?

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

Excellent Show

A solid, down to earth podcast that’s relatable and covers the gamut of the artists, gear, and pizza.

Great Interviews

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.

Laid Back Interviews with Gear makers and Musicians

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.


One of the best podcasts around! I always listen, never miss one!!

A +++++

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!

Two drives, a guitar and a pizza slice

The only thing I don’t like about this podcast is when people say they like pineapple on their pizza. Yuck!

Long Time Listener, First Tike Caller

Man... I’ve been listening consistently to every ep since #1 with Ryan McCaffrey. When I heard them talking Hulk Hogan playin national anthem on guitar - I knew I was home. Over the past four years this show has really grown and evolved into something special. Perfect blend of tone toys, sass, pizza, guitars, pineapple, and more pineapple than you could ask for. I honestly can’t give this enough stars. If you like people, pizza, or guitars then this is for you!

Blake is the best

Blake is the real deal and has a great way of interviewing guests. He’s also a great food enthusiast and that adds a cool layer to his show.

Blake is a great interviewer

It's awesome to find someone as gifted at interviewing such a wide range of folks in the gear and music industry. Love how he branches out and doesn't have the same few people on time and time again. It makes the industry feel both bigger and more intimate than I would have otherwise thought. Could use more cats, though.

One of my favorites

I've been a consistent listener since the early days of the podcast. Blake has really come into his own as an interviewer as the show has progressed. The repeated guests are always a blast also. As long as it keeps getting published, I'll keep listening. Also, Patreon content is A+ also. I highly recommend it if you dig the main cast.

Pineapple is not a crime!

What you’re getting with this show is some serious insight into the lives and stories of people from all over the musical map. The interview style is laid back and conversational which seems to put the guests at ease. It’s not just dudes sitting around arguing about tone wood and string gauges. You learn about the business side of things and, sometimes, even a glimpse in to the personal lives of some of the leaders in this guitar/ gear industry. The interviews with the husband and wife duo of Earthquaker Devices stand out to me as interesting and wildly entertaining. That being said, There is unbridled aggression toward the magical creation that is Hawaiian Pizza. Blake may know his stuff, but the Pineapple hate is uncalled for! Long live pineapple and ham!!!!

Great content!

Blake is a great interviewer and seems to be very good at making his guests feel comfortable. His guests are top notch and have a lot of great information to offer. This podcast and community is a great presence in the gear community.

Thoughtful interviews, genuine dude

I stumbled upon this podcast just as I was getting back into playing guitar after a ~20 year hiatus, and it ended up being the prescription to my guitar doldrums. Blake has an honest, kind interviewing style, and gets the BEST guests to come on his show. It’s a great mix of nerdery and human interest exposition — makes for informative and entertaining listening. Infotainment, if you will. He does a great job of listening to his guests, and not forcing the convo into an unnatural direction. I do not agree with all the host’s pizza choices, but that small fault can be easily overlooked. Even the most causal player will get a lot out of this podcast - even if it’s just an appreciation for how to better listen in a conversation.


Amazing show with an amazing host! He gets the best guests as well!

Awesome is too small a word!

Blake is the best! Great talks, great people and fantastic content! Love love love this show! One of my all time favs!

One of the best out there!

If you’re looking for gate-keeping, cork-sniffing, industry shills spending an hour arguing over why some new piece of gear is or isn’t for you, the Tone Mob is NOT your show. If you want to hear a kind, humble person interview top industry professionals and find out the why behind what they do and get some laughs along the way, this is your podcast. Tone Mob provides a great service to the guitar community. Give the show a chance, as it can be unconventional and you’ll come away with inspiration and motivation. Keep it up Blake.

Informative and interesting!

So far the best guitar gear podcast I have sampled. Covers things like how did the company get started, how did the founders get into building gear, some specific products and details about how they were developed, al in a friendly conversation format. Well done!

Love it!

Love this show. I appreciate the lengthy interviews. And I also love the way that you let the guest decide the pace and content. Thanks!!!

Super cool listening

I greatly enjoy listening to this podcast for numerous reasons. One, the host, Blake, is a normal kinda guy; Likes his gear, likes his beer, his pizza and his coffee. Two, the guests all seem to be comfortable, allowing themselves to venture into non-gear areas that make them much more interesting to me. Three, the audio quality is generally very good. My only issue, one brought up by another reviewer, is the see/saw/seen grammar gaffe. I can hear it coming and I have to physically prepare myself for my reaction. Sorry Blake, I love you man but it hurts. 💗💞👍

This is my title

First few episodes started off rough. Awkward pauses, nervous laughter, and “soooo good times” to fill space. Once you get a few shows in things start to flow. Host is a Super nice guy....super cool dude, but please please please someone explain the difference between see/saw/seen it’s like a knife to my brain stem. In 2nd grade I dog eat my grammar homework before I had a chance to do it.

Give this a shot! You won’t regret it.

As a guitar player and complete gear nerd, I really appreciate the approach Blake has towards this podcast. The subject matter goes much deeper than demos. It has introduced me to some great builders and companies. Highly recommend.

Great show!

Gear talk for gear heads. Lot of fun, but will cause GAS.

Blake brought me back to guitar

I took a 5-year hiatus from guitar playing post-kids. I stumbled on to the Tone Mob one day at work and haven't put a guitar down since. I'm playing more than ever. Blake is a big part of that. His fire for music and strange noises rekindled mine. Give him a listen.

Great Host and Great Guests

Gear Podcast done right! It's really great to be able to get the history and personality behind the gear and the creators!

Some really great interviews

Really enjoy the interviews with some of the industry leaders.

Great podcast for all things guitar and tone!!!

An overall great show to listen to while driving, working out, restringing, soldering, etc. Blake is an entertaining host, and always asks great questions, and has a smorgasbord of fantastic guests from all over the world of guitars, pedals and everything in between. Never boring, and not afraid to talk about anything like other podcasts. Thanks again Blake for a great podcast!

Who doesnt need tone?

What an awesome show! I have been burning thru alot of guitar pods lately and this is one of the really good ones. Great interviews and likable host. Informative guitar & gear related topics. Production is good, sound levels are consistant. Worth a subscribe I promise you.

Gear nerds rejoice!!

Keep up the great work cheers🍻

The only podcast I listen to!!

I have little interest in guitar gear talk to be honest. I love me some good guitar tone though. But heck, I could listen to Blake talk all day. That's why this is the only podcast I listen to, because I can't say that about anyone else. I will let you in on a dang gum secret: play this podcast through a Teddy Ruxpin. Hearing Blakes voice come out of a bear makes it cooler, I promise.

Great Interviews

Great inside look at the world of guitar gear

A little advice...

You're reading reviews trying to figure out if you should subscribe, right? Let me help you out...SUBSCRIBE

Real people behind the brands

Great variety of interviews from different corners the guitar gear realm. The interviews are interesting insights into the backstories and personalities of the actual people that are behind these brands, which adds dimension to the fascination of guitar gear and tone for nerds like us.

Great for pedal people

Blake interviews many gear builders, mostly focusing on guitar pedals, that are not necessarily main stream. Through the show I have been introduced to a lot of brands that I would not have exposure to elsewhere. Face it, there is a ton of gear out there and wading through it all to find the right tones is time consuming. I'm glad to let Blake lead the way!

good guitar gear podcast

Very good podcast. I have been listening since episode one and Blake(the host) is only getting better in his interview skills. Anybody interest in guitar gear should listen

Great gear podcast!

Great podcast for gearheads! Good job Blake!

Great show for Gear nerds

Fun show, topics ranging from fuzz pedals to Pizza.

Instructions Unclear; D*** Stuck In Toaster...

Just kidding; I love listenting to this podcast. I've been playing for about 20 years so I feel like I can appreciate just about all of the topics Blake and his guests cover, from business to the state of the industry, to music's past, present, and future, to pizza. Good work, Blake. Email me for my address to send me the check for this 5-star review. Otherwise, I have a fistful of 1 star coming your way... ;)

If you love guitar pedals, listen to this!

Tonemob podcast with Joel Korte, founder of Chase Bliss Audio! What a cool guy and what amazing pedals he makes! Get the back story and some inside info about Chase Bliss Audio!


I love guitar gear, and I love hearing about the people who make all these wonderful devices. This podcast is a great mix of fun and information. I have a blast with every episode.

This is no joke

If you're not listening to the Tone Mob then you probably don't play guitar. If you play guitar and you don't listen to the Tone Mob, then you probably don't know care very much about gear. If you're in either of those two categories, then maybe the Tone Mob isn't for you. For us gear junkies that want a sneak peek into the brains of our favorite builders, this is the best place to get that information.

What is your favorite pizza?

I listened to this podcast for months before I even knew the name of the host. He will be like a ghost that sneaks into your iPod and takes over the airwaves a little by little. I think tone mob gave my radio a virus, and the only cure is more cowbell.

My favorite guitar podcast

Blake just keeps getting better and better every week. This is definitely my favorite guitar podcast, without a doubt. Can't wait to see who you can get on in 2016!


I've been a pro guitar player for the better part of 30 years, and you might think I know everything there is about guitar and guitar gear especially, but every episode I seem to pick up something new. I recommend this podcast to my buddies ALL THE TIME. A+

What a killer podcast!

What a killer podcast! Been looking for someone who can speak intelligently about guitar gear and I'm glad I finally found a show that does it. Keep up the good work!

Great podcast

If you're into gear this is a must listen. Great show with excellent guests. Along with gear talk and chasing tone this is my favorite guitar gear podcast.

Gear Nerds Unite

Blake is just like the rest of us. He loves gear and loves to talk about it and share info about our favorite thing. Well worth giving him a listen and once do you will come back for more. A great place for gear junkies to unite,

Great gear podcast for musicians!

As a musician who's always struggled to find a good podcast about gear -- Tone Mob is the light at the end of the tunnel. The conversations are honest, loose, and comfortable, making it easy to listen to and enjoy. Also, you can really get a sense of who these folks are, which lends a personal touch to the tools with which we build our tone!

Behind the scenes of the creators

Blake the Tonemobster has the perfect podcast for us gear heads. Down to earth, super nice guy and top gear head. I love hearing from the creators of the toys and tools I use or want to use. He has some great questions laid out but it's cool to hear them get off topic and hear their thoughts on everyday life. Keep up the great work Blake.

These guys "rock"

Production quality is top notch! These guys are a wealth of knowledge in the musical gear world. Cool dudes from the Pacific Northwest! Great show, guys!

If you have gear you should listen!

A great show to gain insight on gear and the people behind the creations. If you're looking for that special tone I suggest you tune in!

Great gear related podcast!

As someone in the business, it is really great to hear the behind the scenes of what other people are doing. Blake has really brought in some solid dudes to talk about their craft, and its a blast to listen to. Highly recommend.
