Rick Mitarotonda's Goose Guitar Rig - March 2022
Rick Mitarotonda of Goose walks through his guitar gear! Thank you to Goose and crew for facilitating this!
We all really appreciate Rick for taking the time to walk through his effects - he isn’t as talkative as some of the other band members so it’s a real treat to get this video!
Listen to We Move Through Stormy Weather wherever you get your podcasts!
Guitar: PRS Hollowbody II Piezo (note: Rick has Peter’s PRS Hollowbody II as a backup for when he breaks a string)
Amplifier: Mesa Boogie Express 5:50 50-Watt 2x12 Combo (NOTE: Rick has his older Mesa Boogie Express 5:50 1x12 as a backup)
For Goosemas 2020, Rick had a Fender Bassman Silverface on the rooftop but it wasn’t mic’d according to the video.
