One of my '63 reissue Vibroverbs just recently survived a horrible fire at my friend's house. Fortunately my friend, his wife, and his children all escaped unscathed, which is of course the main thing. Falling sheetrock punched in the grill cloth on the amp, but missed the speakers, and apparently this is the only damage that the amp sustained. Being covered in sheetrock protected the amp from further damage. It sounds as great as it ever did! This Vibro now joins an early 60s Supro lap steel as survivors of fires. A long time friend and musical associate has a '63 brown Deluxe, which I've gigged and recorded many times. Most recently, I tracked a Hammond melodion through the brown Deluxe, along with a Way Huge Supa-Puss analog delay with modulated repeats. I love the sound of keys through low wattage tube amps. Brown is the sound, man.
