Derek Trucks’ Fender Super 60

The first that Derek Trucks ever played with live was an old Fender Super 60 combo amp. According to Derek, it was the late 80s or early 90s model with red knobs. This particular model featured 60W of power, a single 12″ Eminence speaker, and two modes, clean and overdrive.

The first amp I gigged was a Fender Super 60, one of those with red knobs, late ’80s/early ’90s. But one of the things about growing up playing the blues scene in Jacksonville was all the musicians had good vintage gear, including a lot of blackface Fenders.
