Back around 2004 Brian had the opportunity to sit down with Brent Mason and ask him some questions in an interview that was thought to be lost forever on a broken hard drive. Brent discusses how a song is developed for recording, and what his process is when he comes up with a solo for a song. He also talks about his recording setup and gives an overview of his gear. Brent has some advice on getting into the music business and some pointers on getting good tone. What would Brent Mason do if he couldn’t play guitar? Who would he like play with that he has not yet? And what legendary artist did he miss out on going on tour with? All on this week’s Chasing Tone Podcast.

Many are familiar with G.A.S. (Gear Acquisition Syndrome) But what really drives that desire? Is it the pursuit? Or is it actually acquiring the gear. Brian and Blake discuss it.

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.
