Fender '68 Custom Vibrolux Reverb (USADO)
If you're looking for your perfect club/recording amp, your search is over. Fender's '68 Custom Vibrolux® Reverb all-tube guitar combo delivers 35 watts of late-'60s Silverface™ mojo - perfect for studio work and the gamut of smaller venues. This amp is a member of the Vintage Modified series, so it's packing cool surprises. The vintage channel serves up traditional Silverface tonality, while the custom channel sports a modified Bassman® tone stack that gives you modern tonal flexibility with your pedals. Both channels share tube-driven reverb and tremolo. And for outstanding touch sensitivity, the amp is calibrated for reduced negative feedback and quicker gain onset.

The '68 Custom Vibrolux Reverb delivers classic big tube tone, Fender-style. What's under the hood? Groove Tubes. The preamp section houses four 12AX7s and two 12AT7s, while the output stage is driven by a pair of 6L6s. FENDER® loaded this baby with a pair of 10" Celestion speakers that add a range of crunchy modern tones to this classic combo amp. With its handwired tube sockets and custom-made Schumacher transformers (just like the '60s originals) this amp is ready to rock.Designed to work great with your pedals
In a delightful departure from its classic ancestor, Fender has equipped both channels of the '68 Custom Vibrolux Reverb with reverb and tremolo. The custom channel sports a modified Bassman tone stack that gives your greater tonal flexibility with your stompboxes. The amp also rocks faster gain onset and reduced negative feedback - which translates into greater touch sensitivity. Even the speakers Fender uses are voiced to handle a versatile range of modern rock sounds.A perfect blend of classic and modern
With its unique 2 x 10" speaker configuration, the original Vibrolux Reverb was famous for its big tube tone and snappy twang, juiced by industry-standard Fender reverb and tremolo. With the '68 Custom Vibrolux Reverb, you get all that and more. In fact, in the steady stream of great guitar amplifiers that come through Sweetwater, it's one of the most versatile combos we've played. It'll do classic rock, you bet - but it's also got the moxie for a wide range of modern sounds, as well. And it's loud enough to hold its own against your heavy-hitting drummer!
