Multi-instrumentalist Joby Ford took a break from the camping life to talk tone with Ross. You might know Joby as one of the founding members and guitarists of The Bronx, maybe for his guitar or vihuela or jarana or accordion work in Mariachi El Bronx, maybe for his surf guitar sounds in Pounded By the Surf, and beyond.... Regardless, was stoked to get him out of the tubing tides of Tennessee to take a dip in some soundwaves for this enlightening chat.
The Bronx is currently on tour with Rancid and Dropkick Murphys to celebrate the release of their sixth album: the aptly titled "Bronx VI" and it is an absolute banger of an album.
In this episode, we talk tone, amps, strings, pickups, effects, moshing, skateboarding, being a dad, and beyond... This episode is also graced by the additional music of one of Joby's other bands: Pounded By the Surf.
Keep up with all things The Bronx at www.thebronxxx.com

And be sure to catch The Bronx when they roll through your town with either Rancid/Dropkick or Every Time I Die later this year.
