1 giffenf 1 year ago For no good reason, well, actually it was the discussion about 15" speakers in another thread, I did a vague craigslist search for "Fender amp" and found this little gem: A '73 Vibrosonic Reverb, essentially a silverface Twin with a 15" speaker, with a cover and the footswitch for temptingly little money. I went over to the guy's house and this 39-year-old amp is practically mint. Some torn tolex near one corner, but there isn't even any dust inside it (it's probably been cleaned, but still, this puppy is clean). Just re-tubed and some new caps, and mercy, what a sound. Nice, drippy Fender reverb, standard Fender tremolo (admittedly, I'm spoiled by the magic that is the Nocturne Nailhead, so I wasn't too wowed), more clean headroom than I've dreamed of in a while (and I dream about clean headroom a lot), and even with single-coil pickups, vewy, vewy quiet for an amp of this vintage. Here are a few more pics: My neighbors didn't complain about the Vibrolux, but let's see how they feel about 100 watts of 6L6 tone. It looks like I'm back into the big iron. Added bonus, the seller works in an L.A. guitar store I'd never heard of, "Old Style Music" in Silverlake. Don't know if they serve Heilemann's there or not, but I plan to find out. The Yelp ratings speak highly of it, but I'm intrigued.
