I bought a 68' Vibrolux RI to leave at our rehearsal space so I wouldn't have to haul amps back and forth. I don't use it for gigs, so I'm not real picky about it. Just wanted something clean that could easily keep up with a sort of loud band. It's plenty loud, 3 is about as high as I can go with it, but it doesn't sound pleasing at all. It hurts my ears actually. It sounds sterile, and has a piercing midrange (like a 1 to 2KHz spike) that I can't seem to dial out. Also, there's not much low end, even with the bass on 8. The highs are piercing and brittle sounding. So I'm trying to figure out what to do about it. I know it needs to be biased hotter, probably wouldn't be so sterile sounding. I've done 4 or 5 rehearsals on it now (approx 3 hours ea, so I figure about 15 hours on the speakers), so the speakers should be at least somewhat broken in. So I think I'd need to replace the speakers. Any other suggestions? (I don't play with a lot of pedals, and I've tried it straight in, with no pedals, and the result is the same) I'm simply looking for a classic, scooped blackface type fender sound. I'd like to avoid dumping a lot of $$$ into this thing. Maybe I should sell it? On the bright side, I had a 20% off coupon when I bought it, with free shipping and no tax, it was a very good deal. That will help not taking such a big beating when I sell it.
