John Frusciante’s Moog MF-105 Moogerfooger MuRF

According to an interview John gave to Guitar Player magazine in 2006, he used the Moog MuRF on the solo for Tell Me Baby.

The second verse begins with a couple of guitars playing in harmony. After they were recorded, I ran them through a Moog MF-105 MuRF (Multiple Resonance Filter Array) pedals six times and recorded the results on individual tracks.

Moog MuRF is heard on the solo for ‘Tell Me Baby’ – starts at around 3:55.

The effect was also featured in the second verse of Dani California (listen to the video below).

The MuRF part comes right after the first solo.
