Our philosophy is to strive to deliver high-end quality products and exceed expectations of our customers.”
The Achillies Vibrolux Reverb Amp is now produced as the Achillies Zephyr 35 with same specs – as below:
“The 35 is almost the middle child in the Zephyr family, but there’s no middle child syndrome here! This circuit sports two 6L6’s in the output section, driving 35w of luscious Californian mid-scooped tone through two 10” Jensen Vintage Ceramics, one 12” or, for the ultimate in tonal flexibility, one of each! The Zephyr 35 circuit shares similarities with the 45, so, if you’ve got an energetic drummer in your band, or simply want a little more of that lush clean headroom than the 15 or the 22, to really allow your drive pedals to open up, then the 35 may fit the bill perfectly!”

With both low-end fullness and midrange punch, this amp hits breakup at such a perfect sweet spot, it’s ideal for medium volume rehearsals and smaller stages.
This amplifier certainly looks the part, is extremely versatile with its range of settings and sounds excellent - the perfect amp to bring your playing to life.
Being only a year old, this Achillies Vibrolux Reverb-Amp is in great condition and is stage ready.
