    That’s impressive, grid. This calls for a jam session!

    The amp sounds so good. The blue is staying for now.

    So another OJ-dated Deluxe Reverb...how cool is that? Mine is also in good cosmetic shape since I've taken good care of it over the years. The original Victoria cover is pretty beat but that just shows that it served its purpose.

    I also have a 1966 Vibrolux Reverb.

    Very cool. Great minds think alike. Love to see photos of your two amps.

    Man, that amp just glows. I am sure I can hear it just by looking at the photos! Congrats!

    I also have an original 1965 BFDR but in terms of cosmetics, it is at the other end of the spectrum. Mine LOOKS ok but it had water damage a long time ago and got recabbed in a Mojotone cab. I got it because I couldn't afford an original and I don't mind having gear that is not necessarily collectible, as long as they are good players. I paid much less than half of what a really clean DR would have cost. A while after that, I got a 1969 SFDR drip edge in superb condition. Both of these amps are really nice to play through but quiet different in tone and response. The sf has a JBL D120F and I am just about to put a Weber NeoMag12 in the bf. The Webers are fabulous and really do come close to that JBL sound but at half the weight.

    That just makes me miss the '66 DR I had all the more. :cry:

    Happy NAD!

    Where’s the cover ?

    The only thing more rare than a 54 yr old amp in that condition is one that wasn’t stored with its cover on...

    No doubt. The cele Blue is a great speaker. Still, I'd be curious about the original. One thought would be go try it out in an extension cab. If it needs repairing, call Weber and see if they can recone, demag, etc. If so, put it back in the amp and put the cele in an extension speaker. It might make the amp worth even more.

    Gut shots...

    Black goop on the Filter Caps is remnants of a foam pad from on the inside top of the dog house.
