Interview with John Petrucci’s tech, Maddi Schieferstein, Part 1

John Petrucci, Rig Tours

We interviewed John Petrucci’s guitar tech, Maddi Schieferstein, early in September 2015.

This is a fairly long interview so we’ve broken it up into 3 parts and added photos. Maddi is a very nice and entertaining guy. We are invited back to do another interview in November when they build a new rig. Lots of surprises coming that we weren’t allowed to talk about in this interview so please let us know if you liked these interviews – it will inspire us to do more.

You can watch Part 1 here:

1. How did Maddi become a guitar tech
2. How did Maddi become John Petrucci’s guitar tech
3. The big gear disaster in Mexico that changed their gear – a bit of a discussion of their current gear.


Rack Gizmo CLEARANCE Sale

General News


We are discontinuing the Rack Gizmo. You can now SAVE $200 when you order on our website at while they last.

We’ve had a lot of questions as to why we are discontinuing it. People have asked, “is something new coming out to replace the Rack Gizmo?”

No, we have no plans to design anything to replace it. With the Effect Gizmo and Amp Gizmo/Mini Amp Gizmo, the Rack Gizmo’s functionality is duplicated.

All new products will be focused more on Pedalboard switching since that market is much larger.
