Derek Trucks Band Equipment Stolen

  1. I'm a friend of the Allman Brothers on Myspace and I woke up to this bulletin this morning. I couldn't imagine how bad this would suck.


    Hey there sweet family,

    Some very unpeachy news to share this evening:

    Derek Trucks Band Equipment Stolen....
    Emergency - Please Help
    The Derek Trucks Band's equipment trailer was
    stolen last night in Atlanta. I need to purchase
    the following equipment ASAP. Anyone who is
    willing to sell any of this gear, please call me
    at 303-778-1156.

    1) Two blackface Super Reverbs, 1965 preferred,
    1964 through 1967 acceptable. Must have
    original transformers; everything else will be
    tweaked by me to Derek's spec. Speakers
    not important - keep 'em if you like. As long
    as the cabinet and baffle board aren't busted,
    I don't give a **** what it looks like.

    2) One 1974 or earlier Ampeg SVT head. Must
    have original trannies. Looks not important
    Not looking for the oldest production with the
    6146B output tubes, please.

    Posters in the Atlanta area, please be on the lookout for the stolen gear. A list of serial numbers will be posted as soon as I receive it.

    This is horrible news.:scowl: I hope they find the losers who would dare to pull this off and throw the book at them.
     
  3. It is horrible, isn't it?

    I hope they get their gear back. It's so sad to see something like this happen.
     
  4. What a bunch of sick bastards that took this stuff.
     
  5. I'm a friend of the band, and I have had gear stolen before, so I kinda know what it's like (they had some SUPER gear in that trailer)

    Rico, I hope you get your drums back!
