Derek Trucks’ Matchless Chieftain 2X10

Derek used this amp in the early days, circa 2006, up until it was stolen on March 11th of that same year. This is based on an email that was sent out after a bunch of Derek Trucks Band’s gear got stolen in Atlanta, among them two of Derek’s Super Reverbs. This amp was listed as a 1996 Chieftain 2X10 combo amp, with “Serial number: pending” written below it.

It’s unknown to which extent Derek used this amp, maybe as a backup, or maybe as a practice amp, but there don’t seem to be any images of him using the amp on stage. He is however listed on the Matchless website as one of their endorsed artists.
