Here is a vintage 1964 Fender Vibroverb electric guitar amplifier. This particular example, serial number A03215, is in incredible 100% all original condition and includes the original footswitch. The Fender Vibroverb has long been highly coveted by tone fanatics, and for good reason: it is completely unique, and unlike any other Blackface amp with Reverb. Even the original catalog description suggests it “surpasses other amps in tone and power within and above its price range.” The amp once synonymous with, if not responsible for, Stevie Ray Vaughan’s incredible tone, which was also reissued in 2003 (and discontinued in 2008) is considered the holy grail of Fender Blackface amps, so take advantage of this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to buy one of the nicest examples offered online to date, as a chance to own a nicer one might not ever be available!
Serial Number: A03215
Tube Chart Stamp: NH (August 1964)
Speaker Serial Number: 29657 (JBL)
Transformer Codes: 606414, -606-4-15, 606409, –606312
The Fender Vibroverb utilizes: (1) 5AR4, (2) 6L6, (3) 7025, (2) 12AT7, and (1) 12AX7 tubes through an original 1 x 15″ JBL D130F speaker.
Aside from an updated power cable, this example is in 100% all original condition. From the Mullard, RCA, and GE preamp tubes, to the Mallory capacitors, not a single component has been replaced. Additionally, the amp happens to be in extremely excellent well-preserved cosmetic condition.
This museum-piece is one of the absolute finest examples I’ve seen ever to be made available on eBay, and short of having an original cover, it would be hard to imagine a cleaner one. Most importantly, the amp works perfectly and sounds ridiculously great. Far superior to a Super Reverb or a Deluxe Reverb, this amp produces an incredibly dynamic, yet lush and harmonic, tone that absolutely sings. Whether the Volume is set at 3 or 10, the amp sounds great. Superb clean tones, and jaw-dropping subtle overdrive make this particular example quite complementary with pretty much any guitar. The original JBL speaker is in perfect all original condition with the original cone. It is highly responsive, and does not exhibit voicecoil distortion or cone fatigue.
