Testing gear

Guitar’s power couple of Derek Trucks and Susan Tedeschi share the stories behind their rigs, and bassist Tim Lefebvre walks us through his trippy pedal setup.

PG’s John Bohlinger caught up Derek Trucks, Susan Tedeschi, and Tim Lefebvre of the Tedeschi Trucks Band before their 3-show residency at the Ryman in Nashville. While this might not be a gear-heavy band, there’s plenty of soul, groove, and vibe.

Thanks to Ryan “Murph” Murphy and Bobby Tis for their help.
