John Mayer's Guitar Gear - Paper Dolls & Pedals

By Hugh McKenna

John Mayer Guitar Pedals


He's been releasing Studio Session some cool little teasers for his upcoming album. Frankly we're insanely jealous of the gear he has in the studio, just look at that pedal drawer (just one of several by the way). We can clearly see a few Mayer favourites (Mavourites?).

At least 4 or 5 Tubescreamers, TS-808, TS9, TS10
Lots of Way Huge effects in the foreground
Fulltone Full Drive 2
Voodoo Labs Sparkle Drive (quite a lot like a Tubescreamer)
MXR Distortion + (with the old knobs, not the new fluted ones)

A little more pedal indecency, here's one incarnation of John Mayer's pedal board for recording. Given what we've already seen you can be sure it changes around a bit.

There's a Tubescreamer (of course)
Electro Harmonix: Vintage POG, LPB 1 Booster, Catherdral Reverb & Memory Man Deluxe
Boss: TU-3, Volume/Expression Pedal

Things get even more obscene at this point but unfortunately to the point where it's not easily obtainable.

One seriously sexy Kay Banjo, Hofner guitar, vintage Danelectro and a Roland Space Echo (at least Boss have reproduced this in pedal form). More soberly there's a few bits of workhorse studio gear on display, the omnipresent classic SM57 and a pair of Vic Firth headphones.

When it comes to the mainstay of John's guitar collection it has to be a Strat and his signature model is a natural choice if you want his bluesy but open and expressive tone.

Talking to Guitarist Magazine he's mentioned veering away from the Strat as time goes by, trying out a '61 Les Paul and even a Fender Cabronita.
