John Frusciante’s Line 6 DL-4 Delay Modeleraccess_time First seen circa 2001
This pedal first appeared on John’s pedalboard sometime during the By The Way era, circa 2001. It was usually situated right next to a Line 6 FM4 Filter Modeler, which looks somewhat similar to it, apart from that fact that it’s purple. The pedal seemed to have been used all the way until John’s departure from the band.
Based on the fact that John started using it during By The Way tour, it is likely that the pedal is heard on at least Don’t Forget Me, if not all the tracks that have some sort of delay effect. However, since at the same time he also used a DigiTech PDS 1002 Digital Delay, it’s hard to tell for sure which delay pedal was used on which song.
