Fender Champion 40 1x12" 40-Watt Combo

for th emoney and the size, the amp is great and worth every penny. the only gripe is if you want to use on of the other effects you have to forgo the reverb. but it is great.

Can't Beat It for the Money

Amazing Fender sound at a very good price. Channel one gives you that classic Fender sound, Channel two lets you select some amp modelings that offer a terrific range of options. And the effects are very impressive. I play a Strat through mine and use channel one clean with just a bit of reverb, and use channel two to dirty things up a bit for soloing. This amp also works great for recording as you can come out of the 'phone jack and go straight into the mixer. If you're looking for great bang for the buck, you will not be disappointed with the Champion 40.

Best Value

Price vs. what you get....this one is a winner. Channel 1 is that clean Fender sound. Channel 2 has enough effects to do most everything a hobbyist, like myself, would want to do. I own this and a Mustang amp. If you like to play with your guitar, get this one. If you like to play with your computer, get the Mustang. I've owned the Champion 40 for about one month and have found it to be a great "everyday" amp. It has plenty of power and a great sound. Are there better sounding amps - sure - but they cost a whole lot more. Bottom line - I'd buy it again in a heart beat. No regrets here.
