1 tiny amp that has a ton of tone.I wanted to buy my daughter an amp that would stay with her for the rest of her life. This amp is it. The Champ with it's tube & amp modeling is awesome. I can't say enough about it. But if you want a small amp that does almost everything. You won't be disappointed.

Just right for my purposes.I bought this amp so I can use it in a stereo set up paired with my Pro Jr. (they are both light enough to carry to rehearsals). I was originally looking for another tweed Pro Jr, but for the money, this has the foot switchable effects and second channel with amp voicing. Although I haven't really tried the effects much yet, this works great using the channel switch in the "90's Metal" position for leads and channel one for clean. I also haven't yet tried any tweeking using the FUSE via USB. Maybe I'll post again after I've had more time to thoroughly test it out.

Great little amp with big sound.Small but very powerful and big sounding amp even at low levels. Plenty of voices for any kind of amp tone but the Marshall voice is really good on this amp. Plenty of great sounding effects and you can customize and access more hidden effects using Fender Fuse software. Clean channel is great for adding your own collection of stomp boxes or multi effect pedals. Very high quality made (of course it is a Fender). I do wish it had a standby switch on the front. I also wish the USB could be used to connect the amp as a VST plugin in my host software (Cubase). Righ now you can only use the USB as an AISO input. I am sure Fender is working on this.

It's everything I needI only gave it a 4.5 because of 2 reasons: effects and lack of a stand by switch. But, it is a rare thing when you get an amp that takes longer to unpack than find your sound! There are tons of stuff in here that I'll never use because I know what I like. Gain and fast delay with a tube sound thru a Marshall setting. I only play blues and blues rock so it is perfect for me. I can get a great sound at 1 1/2 on the volume on Channel 2. Quiet enough to play while my wife sleeps in the next room. But it doesn't really start to sing until the volume is up at 2. Although I'm sure it will get loud enough for small clubs. I only put 4 pedals in front of it: a Morley Bad Horsie, a Maxon OD808, a Decimator NR and a Korg Blackout tuner. I have finally found the PERFECT amp for me. Great for recording too! Remember, Clapton used an old Champ on Layla! This has many more features and much more power. Pre-order now!

Big amp toneI bought this as my second amp for practice and generally making noise. With true tubes on the front end, it really does sound like a much bigger, more expensive tube amp. Very nice tonal quality and the volume would easily support gigs in a small venue. Nice effects built in, and with a USB connection to your laptop and Fender FUSE Software, the potential number of models could be limitless. I agree with other opinions posted that this amp's only points deduction is for a lack of a standby switch. If you are back and forth during the day playing your guitar intermittently, this can be mildly annoying as you wait a few minutes for the amp to warm up each time. Guessing that adding a standby switch couldn't add more than $10 to Fender's production cost to build these, I think they are missing the boat on an otherwise ideal practice amp.

great little ampGot this for recording and small venues; the clean channel is dead-quiet,
the modeling voices are very usable, it's PLENTY loud enough and it's light. Would have rated it a five if it had a standby switch.
