We get the lowdown on the former CCR frontman’s rather surprising road gear (including his vintage Les Pauls and rare “bat guitar”), and talk to son and co-guitarist Shane Fogerty about his setup.
Shane’s pedalboard for gigs with his dad (as opposed to with his own band, Hearty Har) is pretty simple: It includes two Boss TU-3 tuners—one for acoustic, and one for electric—an Ernie Ball VP JR volume pedal, a 2-knob Keeley Compressor, a Wampler Hot Wired Brent Mason overdrive/distortion, a Strymon Deco, a Way Huge Echo Puss analog delay, and a Boss DD-3 digital delay. A Voodoo Lab Pedal Power 2 Plus juices the whole shebang.
On May 3, 2015, John Fogerty’s tech, Dave Whiston, and son/co-guitarist Shane Fogerty hung with PG to talk gear before the band’s sold-out show at The Woods Amphitheater at Fontanel in Nashville.
Special thanks to Dave Whiston for details.
