    So I recently got a Deluxe Reverb RI, based on some great advice from everyone here. It's a great amp and it performed really well at my gig a couple of weekends ago. But I found myself just browsing through the GC website, and saw that they had a used Vibrolux in great condition at a pretty nice price. I went to see it at the store, and it came home with me:

    It has a touch more power than the DRRI, and 2 ten inch Celestion speakers instead of the single 12. The amp is in great condition, and even still has the specs/features card on top. The reverb and tremolo work on both channels, and sounds really good. I'm inclined to believe that this may have been a demo or something, based on the condition, and its location along side of all the other new amps.

    Either way, I think it is totally worth $799. Looking forward to bringing it to practice this week.

    Yes, the Vibrolux Reverb is a really nice amp, and despite its compact size, it's capable of rattling windows. Just in case you get the itch to play around, Popa Chubby swears by Eminence Lil' Buddy speakers. He has them in his Vibrolux and they do sound really good. I've heard them in person a couple times down in Durham.

    CONGRATS on a great amp! And at that price...you're fortunate the store detectives didn't stop you on the way out!

    NICE SCORE / NICE PRICE!

    Best wishes with BOTH of those tone monsters!

    Nice amp!! I have a Tweed Vibrolux clone and really enjoy the tones it gives

    I have an Eminence GA SC 10 speaker (ie 1959 tone and specs) and it pairs really well with it.
