Derek Trucks’ 1960s Fender Vibro Champ

This amp can be seen regularly in the videos filmed at Derek’s home studio, and he has occasionally used it on studio recordings, like on the song “Part of Me”.

He was also seen with the amp in the recent interview with Rick Beato, which could indicate that this is the amp that he perhaps uses to practice/warm up on – since the interview was filmed in Atlanta, and not in Derek’s studio.
