Gary Moore’s 1971 Marshall Model 2022 20W

Gary acquired this amp sometime around 1986. According to Cosmo Verrico, Gary had used it extensively throughout his career, most notably on Blues For Greeny and Wild Frontier, although it’s unknown to which extent exactly.

The first album that the amp was used on was the 1987 release Wild Frontier, it is impossible to say which tracks the amp was used on as the only person who could know that is Gary himself. Cosmo concludes that in Gary’s own words, he used this amp and cabinet on every studio album from 1987 up to his death.


Regardless of the quote above, it’s far more likely that the amp was simply there for Gary to use, and he didn’t necessarily always go for it on every single album.

The amp was sold in 2016 though Bonhams, among number of Gary’s possessions, and apparently it ended up with Tune Your Sound – an European based guitar boutique (see link in the quote above for more info).
