Champion 40

I ordered this amp from Sweetwater on a Tuesday and it showed up at my home on Thursday in perfect condition. I build custom pickups and just wanted something small enough to use in my shop to test newly wound pups that had a good clean channel all the way up to high gain and distortion. This amp definitely does the job.

Sweetwater strikes gold again

Super satisfied with my Fender Champion. Incredibly wide range of amp models and effects. I use it to practice at hone and have to keep the volume way down. This baby is a wall shaker! Very pleased with Sweetwater as usual. I get a call from my sales rep when I order and another when it arrives - you just can't beat that kind of service.

Champion 40 is a champ.

I love this amp. exactly what I need for what I need to do. Not too technical and more than enough sound. Love the overdrive/distortion. Got a peddle to go with it, let's just say, Stairway to Heaven sounds heavenly. Would recommend to anyone. Oh, I received it two days after I ordered it, like record speed. Happy, happy!
Music background: Self taught guitarist/keyboardist, singer/songwriter.

This one's a screamer!

I have 3 boutique amps, a vintage Vibrolux and a few small Marshall combos. This little guy does an amazing job creating identical sound to most popular amplifiers. New and vintage amp sounds. The quality happens to be extremely good and what a value. Sweetwater is an amazing etailer and Lucas is a great customer service /sales representative. Thank you Lucas!
