    Introduced in February of 1963, the Vibroverb was the first Fender amp to incorporate Reverb and Vibrato, combining components and design features from the Super and Vibrolux. Produced in this configuration for a year before undergoing changes in line with the other amps in the Fender catalogue, it's estimated that between 200 and 300 were produced. 

    Cosmetically this amp is in pretty much MINT condition, a few very minor knocks and scratches but the Tolex is intact all over and has escaped any fading. The grill cloth too is intact and fade free. The grill cloth looks correct but could; have been changed at some stage. Control face has a few minor marks but nothing too extreme at all. 

    Both output and power transformers are correct though the power cable has been replaced for a three pin heavy duty one which is really a must to keep these amps safe. As far as we can see, this is the only modification though there is evidence of solder being reflowed. 

    Both speakers are correct and work well with no evidence of any damage. The reverb tank is correct and works well.

    This amp lives up to its reputation. 35 watts might be all you need to reach Fender tone nirvana. The pair of 10”speakers give this amp a more midrange-y punch that really cuts through and there's plenty of that wonderful brown panel tone on tap. The touch sensitivity is exquisite, from lush clean to gritty growl with a simple change in dynamics. The vibrato circuit is sumptuous and the reverb adds that lovely spanky depth to the sound. A truly inspiring amp.

    A milestone of Fender amp tone, this Vibroverb is surely a must have. Grab it before it gets away…
