Bettencourt used quite a bit of equipment over the years, although he stayed true to his guitar and amp choices throughout his career. Pretty much from the beginning Bettencourt used Washburn guitars. Washburn now has several Nuno Bettencourt signature models called the N series to honor his accomplishments.

Of course, being a rocker in the ’80s and ’90s, Bettencourt had a nice complement of Marshall amps backing him up on stage every night. But Marshall wasn’t the only amp he relied on; he also had some Fender Twin Reverbs for those softer moments.

Like most of us who can remember playing the classic analog pedals, Bettencourt was a big Boss and MXR fan, using digital delays and phasers. He also used a Digitech Whammy, a talk box, octaver and several other pedals throughout his career.
