Derek Trucks’ PRS Dallas
Derek started using a PRS Original Sewell amp with the Allman Brothers Band in 2009. The amp was a 100W model, and it was paired with a PRS Original Sewell head.
I tried using a lot of different things, and up untill this years when I started using this head, it was just a constant battle. We tried this out at a rehearsal in New York City early this year, and it was just volume and tone, pretty simple and imidiettly fit pretty well.Derek Trucks and the New PRS Amps
This is also confirmed by Derek’s guitar tech, Bobby Tis, who posted some details about the amps on Derek’s website. Unfortunately, the page has been taken offline, but we managed to access it through the WayBackMachine.
On ABB tour however, we were looking for something that could be as clean as a super but also be able to produce the kind of power needed on ABB stage. After trying a bunch of things, we knew the PRS/SEWELL amp would be the choice, all we had to do now was choose the right model. I think we may have accomplished that this past ABB tour. We had a 100w Dallas Model amp on a PRS 4X12 with Celestion Vintage 30 classic speakers. This rig Is the closest we have found to produce DT’s tone in an environment where a 100w amp is just getting by.Bobby Tis, Tuesday, May 26, 2009 (page now offline)
