Loud and proud. Designed for the steel player, but great for any guitar. All functions work as expected, clean and beefy tones with a spring reverb and tremolo on board. Includes original footswitch.

The Fender Amp Custom Shop is dedicated to creating high quality amplification to serve top artists and discriminating players. These amps offer no-compromise sound and performance with vintage appeal and bullet-proof construction. Of course, things like point-to-point wiring do not come cheap. To better serve those who cannot afford the 100% hand-wired custom amps, Fender has created the New Vintage Series, using modern production methods to reduce cost while keeping the tone “custom”. The first Vibrasonic appeared in 1959 as a 40 watt combo amp with 2 channels, tremolo and a 15” speaker. It became the choice of steel guitarists of the era. Later years saw the Vibrasonic evolve, gaining reverb and growing from 40 watts to over 100 watts. In the spirit of all the great Vibrasonics of yesterday, we offer the “Custom” Vibrasonic of today. It is not a reissue of any of the old units, rather, it is a new amplifier designed for the multi-instrumentalist who requires versatility and clean power along with the classic Fender tube tone. It has 100 watts of tube power and 2 independent channels. And just like the Fender custom amps, the “Custom” Vibrasonic is painstakingly built, one at a time, by a select group of craftsmen at the Fender electronics factory in Lake Oswego, Oregon. The two channels are voiced independently, one for steel guitar (although it sounds great with many electric guitars as well), and one for 6 string electric guitar. The STEEL channel has a “SWEET” switch to boost the upper harmonics of the steel guitar. The GUITAR channel has a “FAT” switch to boost the gain, especially at low frequencies. It is equipped with all-tube generated reverb and vibrato which, unlike many old amps, works in both channels. The speaker in the “Custom” Vibrasonic is an Eminence ultrahigh power driver with exceptional sound and fidelity for electric or pedal steel guitar. The 2 button footswitch (provided) will switch both the Vibrato and the Reverb on or off.
