FENDER® CELEBRATES 20 YEARS OF GREAT TONE WITH THE RELEASE OF THE VIBRO-KING® 20th ANNIVERSARY EDITION AMP
Vibro-King anniversary model reigns supreme with new and improved features
SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. (Oct. 1, 2012) — Fender introduced the Vibro-King in 1993 to great acclaim, marking a return to a great hand-wired amp tradition while including a previously unavailable selection of sought-after features.
In the two decades since, guitarists and amp aficionados everywhere have prized the enduringly classic Vibro-King as one of the most touch-sensitive amps ever, with sparkling-clean shimmer at lower volumes and powerfully thick overdrive when cranked up. Fender now commemorates those two decades of pristine tone with the release of the Vibro-King 20th Anniversary Edition amplifier.
Available in black, blonde, and brown coverings with silver, oxblood, and wheat grill cloths, respectively, the Vibro-King 20th anniversary model features all-tube hand-wired circuitry, custom Schumacher® transformers, three new proprietary Fender Special Design Alnico P10R-F speakers by Jensen® for warmer tone, and much more. The Brown/Wheat version also has a solid pine cabinet for increased resonance.
