IE019 - Brady Smith of Old Blood Noise


Brady is the founder and owner of Old Blood Noise Endeavors, a "weird, niche based" guitar pedal company out of Norman, Oklahoma. Brady talks about the origins, growth and operation of his business, his history being the first hired employee at Walrus Audio, working there for three years, and ultimately departing. He also touches on his period as a touring guitar tech for Brand New, where the knowledge and inspiration comes from to create and build new takes on pedal effects, working at Keeley Electronics, and how OBNE strives to be different in the way they present their products in the current state of guitar and pedal culture.
