1956-1960 were the golden years for this smaller member of the Tweed family, the Vibrolux/5F11.
Driving 10 watts of handwired Tweed tone into an 8 ohm Jensen P10R AlNiCo speaker, the Achillies Vibrolux Replica delivers that sought after lush vintage tremolo (variable Speed and Depth knobs) and signature 5F11 drive tone that retains elements of clarity and tightness even when pushing the 12AX7 preamp and 6V6 output tubes into saturation from the Volume and Tone knobs.
A defining hallmark of the Tweed sound is the dovetailed select pine cabinet – true to the vintage originals, all Achillies amps come into their own when the circuit, speaker and cabinet are in-sync and resonating like a living thing, fed directly from the sensitivity of the guitar player’s hands.
At 10 watts, the Vibrolux is revered as the perfect package for manageable pre and poweramp drive, whether in the studio or mic’ed up on the stage.
