FACTOIDS & TRIVIA

The Vibrolux Reverb took over the role of Fender’s 2x10 reverb amp after the 2x10 Vibroverb was discontinued. It’s still not clear why Fender didn’t use the Vibroverb moniker for the Vibrolux Reverb, but then the company confused the name game with the Pro Reverb and Super Reverb as well. Regardless, the Vibrolux Reverb has proven to be an excellent sounding amp and one that is very popular with guitarists due to its tone and ease of portability. The Vibrolux Reverb was designed to operate at slightly lower voltages than its stable mates, the Super Reverb, Pro Reverb, and the short-lived 1x15 Vibroverb. As a result, the Vibrolux is rated at 35 watts instead of 40 watts. CBS-Fender modified the Vibrolux Reverb several times; in 1968, 1970 and in the late 1970s. The pre-CBS “blackface” circuit remains the favorite among players and collectors.
