Wow, that gear sold fast! Only a Kustom amp left the way it looks...

If you go to the link and click on "sold listings" or whatever in the left hand column, you'll be able to see all the items that were listed from this group. Actually 250 for a Line 6 rackmount Pod Pro isn't that bad of a price even if it were not part of the "Brian Wilson" sale! Wonder if they're selling off some gear they retired from the tours, or backup rigs from those tours, because Al's Fender amps were sold in this lot too. And 3+ years ago I saw those road cases with the Brother logo and "In Concert" stencil in use during the BW tours. Maybe they retired all this gear and got new stuff?

The Beach Boys had a company called American Productions that handled their touring and rehearsal equipment, among other things. They were on Lincoln Blvd, somewhere near the Santa Monica/Venice border. I went there in 1979 and purchased a Kustom PA that the band had used - don't know if it was for rehearsal or very small venue gigs - plus mics, and cables. I didn't get a tour of the facility, but I did see lots of rolling Anvil cases with the Brother logo on them.
When I arrived, Dennis was crashed out on the love seat in the reception area.

PS - there were four pieces of masking tape under the mic inputs of the PA head. The names on the tape were, Mike, Al, Carl, Brian.
PPS - Nope. No longer have that equipment. Sad

Reading between the lines I wonder if this is some of Nick Walusko's old gear and associated cases.
