Sweet amp with big tone!

I bought this amp about a month ago and it sounds amazing and it's packed with a great amount of British and metal flavors which makes it sound different than the others on the market, I Totally recommend this amp for beginners and pros alike.

A Very Happy Surprise!

For years I gigged with a Fender Deville tube amp, but at age 60 it was getting just too heavy to lug around, so I got a Fender Excelsior, which I mic through a PA. Although I love the Excelsior, it's still a pain to drag around that and a pedal board if I want to play in the living room or out on the patio, etc, so I started looking at SS amps with effects. I first purchased a Mustang II, but I seemed to spend all of my time on the computer trying to dial in a tone I liked. I was spending more time on the computer than I was playing, and to be honest I didn't like the tones or the closed back. Maybe the models are better now as I had a first generation model, but I'm just not a tinkerer, so this amp was not for me. I started reading reviews on this amp and listening to demos online, and decided to take a chance and order the Champion 40 without trying it. It was EXACTLY what I was looking for. The clean channel is classic chimey Fender roughly based on a Twin Reverb, and the amp models on channel 2 are MUCH better to my ears than the Mustang II was. My favorites are the Blackface Deluxe, Blackface Princeton, and British 70s models. The effects (with the exception of the auto wah- which sounds a little goofy to me), are all very useable. The amp is as easy to use as it gets, and you don't need a computer to dial in great tone which was a huge plus for me. It sounds great with my Am Std. Strat, Epi 335 Pro and Godin 5th Ave. Kingpin. It's a loud SS 40 watts, definately could handle smaller club gigs.I would have NO problem micing this amp and using it anywhere, and at 19 lbs. I may be doing just that from now on. I highly recommend this great sounding little gem!

Champion 40 with GB 128 eminence speaker

I regularly play fender hot rod Deluxe which has a Eminence Speaker. It sounds great, I even got the extension speaker and stack them. I been playing since 1967. This by far is the best amp I have ever had. With extra it out plays the fender twin amp I had. I changed because of the weight. But I wanted a practice and back up amp. The champion 40 was good but I used to the warm heavier tone. So I ordered the 50 watt Eminence GB128 guitar speaker. It added a little weight but well worth extra $65. My mission was complete.
Music background: Covers player for 50 years .

Worth every buck and more!!!
