I swore to myself I was going to take a break for a bit after I finished the 1976 Twin Reverb overhaul. I was thinking its time to focus on playing guitar for a while. Singing more. It turns out my brain thinks I've spent too much time on that stuff in my life. It wants more amp candy. I just wrapped up the 74 TR overhaul for a local musician today. Now it's time I get to this VLux. I picked up this 1962 Vibrolux in Mid January. I have spent a month looking at it. I would not allow myself to play it. It is an extremely clean specimen with very little intrusion except SS rectifier mod and a PT changeout. I assume the PT was changed to accommodate the SS rectifier idea. The caps are all original throughout. Caps are dated 52nd week of 1961. I think this is the cleanest vintage Fender I have ever been in. Definitely the cleanest vintage amp I own. I see 3 carbon film resistors that are new. 1 on bias board and 2 for the artificial center tap off the pilot light. Oh, and a new, death cap. Some one actually replaced the death cap. Time to rip out the SS diodes, replace the PT with a proper matched Classictone, and re-wire up the 5AR4/GZ34 rectifier tube. I put a 1964 C12N speaker in it. Here we go. If you want to follow along feel free to check back. Leather handle is not original. It does not hurt my feelings much. I don't recall seeing those little domino caps, the square red blocks on a circuit board in a Fender amp before. I have seen them up near the volume pot on my 1959 5E3. Just incase I have not mentioned this before, the Brown 6G11 Vibrolux is THEE AMP that Mark Knopfler used in the studio to record Sultans Of Swing. Which so happens to be one of my favourite Strat songs of all time. I have booked my calendar for the rest of 2017 to play Sultans on this amp. Here you can witness blistering B+ caps with secreted fluid staining the cardboard tube covers. Choke and OT are original. You can see the replacement PT. There is 606-414 number on it. A part number too A036958. A quick search on that Fender part number yields: Amps Used In: Hot Rod Deluxe**, Blues Deluxe**, '63 Vibroverb Reissue**, Custom Vibrolux** I will guess it a 14th week of 1994 Shumacher Transformer? Anyone need one? It's coming out. The previous amp tech who did the SS conversion filled the original rectifier tube socket with epoxy. It's rock hard in the socket pin holes. It has a nice mix old made in the USA, and Amperex made in Holland tubes.
