I found a 1966 Vibrolux Reverb, but it's $2850, I've found original Super reverbs for less. How much is the Vibrolux worth?

About 2 grandish.


For what you're paying though, I'd much rather have a Blackface Deluxe.

Why would a Vibrolux be more than a Super reverb?

Why? Because people want it.


Why is a 1971 Marshall Superlead more than a 1971 Marshall Superbass?

I've always seen Supers as more though.

Well, things change in the vintage market. One month an amp will be hot, the next month, not so much.


That or the guy doesn't know what he's doing and is asking for too much.

I'm gonna try and get it for $1600, if not, I'll go for the Super.

Probably for the same reason this is somehow worth $1500.

Some people are just stupid I guess.

I think the stupid one is the buyer, not the seller. God bless him if he can get that kind of cash for a 4x12. I've seen some dumb stuff, there is guy on CL here in Chi selling a V50 for $350. I don't have the heart to e-mail him a link to the $199 deal new.

To the TS, something built in 1968 is more desirable to a lot of buyers than reissues. Collectors and avid gigging musicians go for that stuff more than average everyday players. (Generalizing people, I know some of us have some real vintage gear that we play everyday).

Yeah, I've had my 1960 up for a few weeks on there for sale or trade for something with Greenbacks or a Krank Stein cab and that guy emailed me saying he'd take my cab + $650 for his I could buy a V30 loaded 1960, V30 loaded Recto cab and a Krank Rev cab for that price. Whoever buys that is an idiot

How is the tone of a '68 in comparison to a original Blackface?

When I wrote "68" earlier I was misquoting you. I thought the Vibrolux you originally posted was a 68. But that 68 super looks pretty nice. According to the add he has fixed a lot on it and it seems (doesn't it always "seem") like he is being straight forward saying it some blemishes. It would be a great surf amp but isn't the easiest to move around, I bet it weighs 70 pounds or better. That or the 66 Vibro would be great for surf. Both are great amps.
But yes, people generally prefer the actual amps from the late 60's as opposed to the reissues.

It also says the reverb tank was replaced with a '64, also, original Supers weigh 59 or 60 lbs.

I offered him $1600 for the Vibrolux, and he thinks he's being reasonable, because he found a site where someone sold one for about $3300.
