PEDALS

Scott uses a very short cable from the guitar into an Xotic RC Booster, Maxon SD-9, Fulltone Octafuzz, ZVex Fuzz Factory, Arion Chorus with true bypass mod, Chase Tone Script Wah, and then into the amp. All of Scott's cable is Mogami 2524 with Switchcraft plugs. The small black box on his pedal board is an E.W.S. Subtile Volume Control (SVC) which Scott designed as an alternative to a standard volume pedal. It's plugged into the amp FX loop so he can control his volume without affecting the gain.

Scott uses a wet/ dry setup. The amp is dry, and the effects are in a second amp, usually a Fender combo. Scott uses a Suhr Line Out Box which is plugged into an external speaker jack on his amp. The Line Out Box converts the speaker signal to line level, which is sent to the SVC next to the wah, then into the input of a Boss SE-70 multi-FX, and then to the second amp. All SE-70 patches are 100% wet, and the SVC allows Scott to control the wet/dry mix. The Tech 21 MIDI Mouse is used to switch programs on the SE-70.

The Boss RC-3 Loop Station isn't a true bypass pedal so it's not connected. Scott hooks it up in place of the wah during soundcheck to check his tone in the PA. The black box on the top right contains five 9v batteries which power all the pedals. It has an on/off switch, so no need to unplug pedals when not in use, or take pedals off the board to change batteries. Scott uses a Snark SN-8 "Super Tight" headstock tuner.


AMP

Scott's amp is a Suhr SH100, which is a hand-wired version of channel 2 on the OD100 Classic, but with an aluminum chassis, plexi Marshall layout and no extra switches.

CABINET

Scott runs his amp at 8 ohms into a 4x12 open back slant cabinet made by Kerry Wright in Fullerton, CA. The cabinet is loaded with 8 ohm Celestion 25 watt Greenbacks.

GUITAR

Scott's guitars are made by Suhr Guitars.

The Scott Henderson model is a classic with an alder body, roasted maple neck/ Indian rosewood fingerboard, 6100 frets, Suhr locking tuners, three single coil ML Standard pickups (no hot bridge, all pickups are the same), the SSC 2 noiseless system, and a Fender Vintage bridge. Scott's guitar wiring: tone 1 controls the neck and middle pickup, tone 2 controls the bridge pickup, and the tone controls are bypassed in the 2 and 4 positions.
Scott's strings are D'Addario 10's and he uses Fender Heavy picks.
