John Frusciante Gear and Pedal Board

John Frusciante has become of the most well known guitarists today, and his pedalboard is an important part of his notoriety. Learning about John Frusciante gear can be very entertaining, as the list of pedals grows through every album. Recently, he has been seen adding Moog brand pedals to his boards, one of the few major artists to do so, at least according to our records. Though John Frusciante wields some influence, and this statement may not ring true for very long.

John Frusciante Gear Added to Our Profiles

John Frusciante gear Spotlight : Electro-Harmonix Big Muff

In honor of this new addition to our list, we figured we point the spotlight on some important pedals appearing among all of the John Frusciante gear. We decided to go with the Electro-Harmonix Big Muff. It was added originally during the end of the Californication tour, though it was a black Russian Big Muff, whose specs were later passed onto the Bass Big Muff, which is equally suitable for guitars. In fact, the Big Muff’s low end frequency response made it a favorite for bassists, even though it was primarily designed for guitarists. By the time “By The Way” came around, he switched to the classic US Big Muff Pi, which has stayed on his pedalboard since then.
