John Frusciante’s DigiTech PDS 1002 Digital Delay

John started using this pedal during the By The Way tour and had used it consistently until his departure from the band. However, during that same time, he also used the Line DL-4 Delay Modeler, so it’s unclear when exactly he used each, and for which purpose.

The pedal was also seen on John’s 2022 pedalboard for the Unlimited Love tour (see John Frusciante’s 2022 Pedalboard).
