Derek Trucks’ Alessandro AZZ Amp
Used with the Allman Brothers Band, and more recently with the Tedeschi Trucks Band as part of his main live rig. Around 2015, Derek seemed to have abandoned his usual live rig consisting of a couple of Fender Super Reverbs and opted for two Alessandro 1/2AZZ amps instead (also confined in the PremierGutiar rig rundown).
For this band, George Alessandro offered to build me something with a little more juice, so he built my current amp under his name.
It’s similar to a Super Reverb, with more guts. It still has that headroom, so it stays clean longer but can get saturated, too. It doesn’t get lost in the mix so much. Typically though, some nights I’m happy with my setup, then others I want to throw all my shit in the river.Interview: Derek Trucks of Tedeschi Trucks Band, 2019
