Mark Knopfler’s Fender Vibrolux

Mark Knopfler used a Fender Vibrolux amp in the very early days of Dire Straits. It was his main live amp for the early concerts and possibly, he used it to record some of the songs of the band’s debut album – including “Sultans of Swing”. Unfortunately, there’s no definite proof that he used this amp or any other specific amp for that matter.
