Scott Tarulli



A lot of people ask about my various rigs for live shows and studios. This varies depending on the job and the specific sound I'm going for. Below is a roundup of the gear I typically use.




Music Man Silhouette guitars:

  • My Sunburst has Roasted Maple Neck with rosewood fingerboard, two single coil Seymour Duncan Classic Strat pickups in the neck and middle, and a Duncan Seth Lover in the bridge 
  • My Tangerine Music Man has a roasted maple neck, Maple fingerboard, Seymour Duncan pickups - Neck: Lil ’59, Bridge Whole Lotta Humbucker(Jimmy Page model)
  • My Red Music Man, fixed bridge, Roasted Maple neck with maple fingerboard, Seymour Duncan pickups - Neck and Middle: Lipstick Tube Strat - Bridge: Twang Banger 





  • Orange OR50
  • Orange OR15
  • Orange 2x12 cab or 1x12 cab





I’m always switching effects depending on the gig or what I feel like using. But, I always have my Xotic BB, SP, RC boosts on board. I also love their WAH pedal. Then I add various delays modulations, and even use the Moog Moogafooger and Electro Harmonix H.O.G. 2 for some really unique sounds.






Of course, as a session guitarist, I have various vintage Fender Amps from the 50s, 60s and 70s. I also have vintage Marshalls, JMI Vox amps, and a few other Gems. I use these mostly in the studio to get specific tones for artists. I also bring them out live when playing as a sideman.



I also have a collection of guitars that include Gretsch, Telecasters, Strats, Les Pauls, SGs, 335,  Dan Electro, Taylor Acoustic and Nylon String Guitars. These get used a lot in the studio and live when playing as a sideman for artists looking for those specific tones.
