Brad Whitford’s Aerosmith Terry Hanley, Franken Rig, Authenticated! (#160) $3,495.00

From the Brad Whitford Collection at Donn Bennett’s Drum Vault.

This amp was a custom “dressing room” amp built for Brad by the legendary Terry Hanely Audio. The amp is a drastically “Frankenstiened” MusicMan combo amp built as a multi purpose work station for Brad’s Aerosmith dressing room in the 1970s. One of the two 12″ speakers was removed to make space for a built in tuner, spare strings, guitar tools and whatever other implements the Bad Boys From Boston kept handy at the peak of their hard partying era.

The amp was customized for Brad by Boston based, Terry Hanely Audio Systems. When Aerosmith started headlining major venues in the 1970s the chose Terry Hanley Audio to run their sound. Brothers Bill and Terry Hanley are pioneering legends in the field of sound reinforcement. They are credited with bringing live sound reinforcement into the modern era. In the 1960s and 1970s. They ran sound for The Beatles at Shea Stadium and managed the sound reinforcement at the 1969 Woodstock Music Festival. They toured and ran sound with Rolling Stones, Bob Dylan, Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin, Led Zeppelin, Aerosmith, Bob Marley and countless other top artists of the era. They are true icons in the field of sound reinforcement. Modern sound production would be what it is today with out the advances made by the Hanley brothers. 

The amp currently does not work. It was mothballed decades ago and just recently uncovered in Aerosmith’s storage facility. It doesn’t power up and the tubes are missing. Right now, the amp is more of a historical rock n’ roll artifact than a functioning guitar amp. It’s being sold “as-is”. It’s currently at my amp repairman’s shop waiting to be diagnosed. I’ll update with his report.

Acquired directly from Brad Whitford. The amp is identified by an Aerosmith inventory tag. It includes a certificate of authenticity signed by Brad Whitford.

Ships from Seattle, WA. $170 US shipping. We will ship internationally.
