Robert Plant 1968/1969 Laney Amplifier


Recommended Posts

Original sales ledger with Robert Plant's purchase of a Laney PA system, consisting of a 100W tube head and two 2x12 cabinets, March 22, 1968. This was also used in the first Led Zeppelin tours up to early 1969.

(Robert presented Laney with a commemorative signed plaque to the acknowledge the contribution).

I've just found a few photos I had on file.

The first shows Robert holding the same type of award that was presented to Laney Amplification: 

"presented to Robert Plant...for sales of Audio and Video Sales in Excess of 200 Million Units"

close up of the award:

and a third photo shows what is either the exact same award Robert held above and was auctioned off or a third copy (possibly presented to the BBC). I say it's possibly a third copy because the signature is definitely different from either of the above (unless signature was later removed and he signed it again, adding "Best Wishes", for the auction).
