Derek Trucks’ 1969 Marshall Bass 50w Model 1986

This amp originally belonged to Duane Allman and was used on the At Fillmore East live recordings. As pictures show, the amp was serviced and modded by “Dennis Electronics”, a New Jersey-based company owned by Dennis Kager, most likely after Duane’s death.

Derek used this amp on the solo for the song “Idle Wind” from the album “Made Up Mind” released in 2013, and Susan used it on “Whiskey Legs”. He now occasionally uses the amp as part of his live rig, coupled with the Alessandro 1/2AZZ.
