    I'm going to purchase one of these two in the next couple months...

    Any help with pro's and con's of each in your humble opinions would be greatly appreciated!

    Thank you!

    Do you need a single Celestion 12 inch or 2-10 inch Celestion speakers?
    22 or 35 watts?

    Both have the Bassman tone stack.

    I have a 65 DRRI and an 81 Vibrolux. For live I would go with the Vibrolux for studio the DRRI. That's all I know.

    I own both a SF Deluxe Reverb and a BF Vibrolux. The Vibrolux sounds amazing at band volume. I have yet to use the Deluxe Reverb with a band or drummer. Both are great amps. Try both and by the one that works for you.

    Both great amps and I'm sure you'll be happy with either! I like the spread and tighter bass of the 2X10s better.

    Different power tubes, too: 6L6 vs 6V6. If you play with a drummer I think you'll find more clean headroom with the Vibrolux. Best of luck, CS

    True, and I'd take a SF VR over either or both of them.
