PINK SIDEMAN JUSTIN DERRICO BRINGS A
worth of gear on the road, and the current Truth About Love tour is no
exception. Despite all of the musical firepower in his arsenal, however, he
could get by—if he absolutely had to—with the following equipment. —
1. Pink likes to tease me about how many guitars I take on tour with
me, but number one is my main Les Paul. It’s nothing special—
a 2006 Les Paul Standard with stock pickups. I don’t know what
it is about that guitar, but from the day I pulled it out of the case, it
smoked everything. It’s just a great-sounding guitar. The headstock
has snapped twice on it, but I repaired it.
2. My Bogner Shiva is a big part of my sound. I’ve been using Bogner
amps for a long time, and that tone is kind of embedded in what
I do—especially for solos.
3. A new addition to my rig is the Fried-
man Brown Eye. The clean sound on
that amp is like a Fender-y clean sound
and it’s awesome.
4. I use delay for leads, but it’s on pretty
much everything—to make things
sound wetter and nicer. I’ve got a
Roland SDE-3000—which is awesome—
but it doesn’t have a tap-tempo function.
I’m always tapping in tempos, so I mostly
use the Boss DD-20 Giga Delay. It’s really
nice and chewy.
5. I can’t live without my Cry Baby 535
wah pedal. It’s all over my solo record
[Boldly Going Nowhere], too. Maybe it’s
a crutch—I guess we all have one—but,
especially for all the lead stuff, I love my
