1964 Fender Vibroverb Amp Export Version – Blackface
We present an original 1964 Fender Vibroverb amplifier blackface. Made in Fullerton, California.
This is a rare 1964 Fender Vibroverb blackface amplifier in excellent condition. It’s the super-rare export version (EU power) of an aleady rare amplifier. Fender Vibroverb is a great example of Fender’s rarest and most desirable blackface amp. The Vibroverb was only made in the Pre-CBS Fender era, lasting from late 1963 through ’64. Best known for its association with Stevie Ray Vaughan.
The amplifier delivers 40 all-tube watts with a dual channel design and tube rectifier. The tone is clear and powerful, with dynamic Fender cleans that sparkle and twang. The original speaker keeps the signal and tight, with very little speaker cone distortion even at high volumes, letting the light compression and velvety tube overdrive of the circuit be heard with stunning clarity when you push the amp near 10 on the volume dial.
The Reverb has plenty of splash and dimension with a long decay, and the Vibrato (technically tremolo) has a strong, smooth pulse. The circuit is in great shape, with the original transformers. All of the original CTS pots are intact. It has been serviced with some new capsistors and resistors so it can run perfectly. A newer power prong cable has also been installed.
Cosmetically, this amp retains its original smooth black tolex that is in excellent shape and silver sparkle grillcloth. Comes complete with its original pending tilt-back legs, sphinx glides, and handle caps and its original footswitch.
Even comes complete with a Custom flightcase.
