Mike McCready’s Pedalboards
Mike McCready Pedalboard – Yield Era
During the release of their 2002 Album Riot Act, Sony music posted on their website the full details on the gear the boys in Pearl Jam used to create the album. Also posted was their stage set-up as of 1998 (which coincides with their return to steady touring following the release of Yield). These pedals have been building up since at least the recording of Ten and reached their peak during Binaural, after which a much more different Mike McCready pedalboard configuration could be seen.
