The Vibrolux Reverb is soooo much fatter and warmer sounding than the Deluxe Reverb. I prefer it by a wide margin- I might be biased- I've owned the amp for almost 30 years and this is the first Deluxe Reverb I've ever played!

The owner of the DR also has a '66 VR just like mine. He gigs heavily and the DR is a backup.
