This makes us very, very happy. ? That is a photo of @johnmayer ‘s board on the @deadandcompany tour. I spy the True Spring Reverb with the Tap Switch (we assume to engage/disengage the tremolo)! Being HUGE Mayer AND Dead fans, this is truly an honor. Seeing some other great pedals from @strymonengineering @jimdunlopusa @ehx @klonllc and what looks like some kind of Tube Screamer (not sure which one). #sourceaudio #johnmayer #pedalboard #gearpassion #springreverb #truespringreverb
In the Instagram post, Source Audio revealed that Mayer is indeed using the company’s True Spring Reverb pedal, as well as a few Strymon, Dunlop and EHX units. The entire signal chain is detailed in another post by an Instagram fan account.
The board is also stocked with some of Mayer’s well-documented favourites: a Klon Centaur, an Ibanez TS10 and an Electro-Harmonix Q-Tron+. Another interesting spot is Strymon’s tape delay behemoth, the Volante.
Besides pedals, Mayer has also been pictured using a triple-humbucker PRS model, which appears to be a modified version of his PRS Super Eagle.
