Comparing a version II made in mexico hot rod deluxe and an all original 1973 vibrolux reverb – Played with a Strat – No effects. My personal opinion between the two… The Vibrolux has a clear, more organic vintage sound that is more “in your face” and personal with a stiffer/quicker response to your playing (less sag); while the Hot Rod Deluxe has a nice solid ambient clean sound that is more scooped in the midrange and has more sag – It’s not as “up close”. I love them both for their different tones. If I could choose one without price being an issue, I’d go vintage vibrolux. I do prefer the hot rod DEVILLE over the hot rod deluxe though, because I like the push of two 12’s.
