Stanley Jordan’s Gear

Stanley Jordan's Gear

Stanley Jordan is a jazz guitarist who can play two guitars at the same time using his unique tapping technique. It blew me away the first time I saw a video of him playing Autumn Leaves with his trio. Stanley uses a very specific gear setup for recording and performing.

Sometimes, Stanley just goes direct into the monitors to get a fuller sound that isn’t focused on the mid ranged frequencies like guitar amps.


Effects:

Stanley used to use much more effects such as wahs, Midi sounds and other effects, but now he keep his setup simple and minimal.
