At A Glance:

With its all tube driven circuitry, vibrato and modded Vibrolux reverb, plus signate Silverface and Bassman tone stacks,the Custom Vibrolux gives you the authentic Fender tone with a modern twist.
Features We Love:
Who Is It For?
Guitarists looking for that authentic Fender tone in a portable form and without the risk of investing in a vintage amp are going to love the Custom Vibrolux Reverb! It's been designed to bring the all tube tone of the classic Silverface and Bassman amps to the guitarist that requires the reliability of a modern amp, without any compromise to that authentic sound!
Tube Driven Reverb
The Custom Vibrolux features the classic Fender tube driven reverb with a twist. The reverb circuit has been modded to minimise the risk of feedback and to offer more tonal flexibility when used with pedals.
Tube Driven Vibrato
The amp features the old school tube-biased tremolo circuit. The magic being this amps vibrato is that it modulates the power tubes, meaning the tremolo ducks out of the way when you strum hard, then gradually comes in as your notes sustain. It's one of the best tremolos we've heard as it really puts the focus on your playing.
- Classic Fender tube tone
- Built-in reverb and tremolo bring a great new dimension to your tone
- Just like the originals, the amp features handwired tube sockets and custom-made Schumacher transformers

The ’68 Custom Vibrolux Reverb Amp pays tribute to the classic look, sound and performance of Fender’s late-’60s “silver-face” amps. In a special twist, both channels boast reverb and tremolo, and the “custom” channel has a modified Bassman® tone stack that gives modern players greater tonal flexibility with pedals. The amp also features quicker gain onset and reduced negative feedback for greater touch sensitivity. While fitting a sweet spot between the Deluxe Reverb and Twin Reverb, in respect to power and size, the ’68 Custom Vibrolux Reverb's dual 10" Celestion® TEN 30 configuration and 35 watts of all-tube power deliver distinctive rock 'n' roll flavour.
