Chasing Tone - Guitar Podcast About Gear, Effects, Amps and Tone
About This Show
Welcome to the Chasing Tone Podcast. Join Blake Wyland and Brian as they talk about guitars, guitar pedals, amps, and other guitar gear, answer questions, and discuss all things guitar related as well as how to get the most out of your gear to get the best guitar tone. While this podcast is paid for by Wampler, we talk about many other brands much more than we do Wampler products. If you suffer from G.A.S. or just simply like to listen to gear podcasts, you'll love Chasing Tone.

163 - Tone Tips - Busting the myth of magical op-amps and diodes...?
< 1 day ago
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?

Best show yet!
Hey, guys, just wanted to say the most recent show ("Solid Stave vs Tube") was your best one yet. All the topics covered has some real meat to them, this was a substantive podcast, well worth the time to listen to. It's good that you guys have fun doing the show (why do it if it's not fun, right?) but ultimately I'm much more interested in the music & tech talk than I am in Max's B&G's or Travis' ice tea. You guys really tackled the subjects in detail this time, I really appreciated that. Thanks for the info!
