  • Do I want a Fender silverface Vibrolux or a Super Reverb [reissue, silverface, or 60s blackface)?

    5 watt difference

    2 more 10s

     

    right now i could get an early 70 vibrolux or a 64 - 69 [cant exactly remember] blackface super reverb for about the same price [vibro cheaper] ... or look for a cheaper reissue super reverb or a little cheaper silverface super reverb?

    Super Reverbs switched from blackface to silverface in 67-68 I believe, if you can get a real deal blackface vintage super, I'd hit it in a heartbeat. Though you can't go wrong with either of those amps.

      What did srv use amp wise, I never cared, but I bet he could have used a juice box.

        Dumbles, Fenders and Marshalls. Pretty sure he used both the Super Reverb and the Vibrolux with JBLs in it. Though I think instead of the 2x10 he was running a 1x15.

        I'd go with the Super Reverb. Great amps! Yeah, they're a bit heavier and bulkier, but that's what dollies and casters were invented for.

          We don't need to talk about srv, I have no desire to know anything about him.

          I had a similar dilemma recently--trying to choose between a vibrolux and a super--went with a 68/69 Super Reverb (drip edge).  It has silver face looks but still has the blackface circuit.  I love it.  I still can't believe how much more I like the sound of that compared to my old hot rod deluxe.

            I love the current Vibrolux myself. Sounds fantastic every time i play it at the local music shop. Takes pedals well, too.


        • #10
          Id pick what sounds best with my specific pedals, has the better speakers, is cleanest aka in the best shape,, is loudest, sounds the trippiest,

            Both great amps. If you're going to be playing loud and running pedals through it, I'd go with the Super. The B+ is run lower on the Vibrolux so you'll get some aggression and breakup at lower volumes.

              My first good amp was a drip edge Vibrolux. I have it and it still sounds great. I have a ton of amplifiers (old Fender, Marshall, Vox, etc... new Soldano, Fuchs, Mesa, /13, Bogner, etc....) and have owned a Dumble.

              All those sound different but the Vibrolux is a great amp if you're playing out or at home. I always liked them a lot better then Deluxe Reverbs and Super Reverbs are a PITA to move IMHO when you compare them.

              Some of the SF ones are actually BF models (the one I have is but I forget what the model number of those is). THat is what I would look for. YMMV.


          • #12
            Maybe it was the past brown ones- my friend still has one i should take a trip out by him and clarify.

            And yes the "twin" aka fender 4 input system typically has 1 channel/side without effects... But on the reissued vibrolux the sides are voiced differently (again based off the brown 90s reissue memory)

              will this be for band practice or playing in front of an audience?   is volume an issue?


          • #14
