Derek Trucks’ Ibanez TS-9 Tube Screamer

Derek was seen using an Ibanez Tube Screamer pedal, likely a TS-9, in his 2023 rig. He had the pedal connected to his Fender Super Reverb amp, which again became his main amp after he used an Alessandro AZZ for a few years as his main live amp.

It is therefore possible that Derek wanted a little bit more boost from his Super Reverb, which he could’ve achieved with the TS-9, since he has said on numerous occasions that Alessandro is pretty much a Super Reverb on steroids.
