    This is a very versatile amp. & is useful in many ways. I have 2 other brands I've been using, but strongly prefer the sound of the Fender Champ over the others for both acoustic & lead use. My only complaint is the power switch should be in front. It's a bit inconvenient on the back. Also the aux/earphone jacks should be 1/4" instead of 1/8". Everything else is perfect, at least for me.
    I am a VERY experienced musician & picky about my sound, but I give this top rating.

    This is an ok amp for a beginner who does not know much about sound. It has a lot of features and is small and portable. The 2 problems I have is it has that typical solid state fender boxy sound. Also the worst part of this amp is the blackface setting jacks the volume up to loud when you switch from the other settings. The others are pretty equal in volume but the models also sound very similar. I feel there are many other small practice amps which would do the job better.

      Comments about Fender Champion 20 Guitar Combo Amp:

      Been playing about 16 years and have tried several different brands of amps, Peavey. Fender, Roland, Dean Markley and a Pignose just for the fun of it. Some I still have. But this Champion 20 is just sweet for a practice amp! Thought about getting the 40 but the 20 amp suits my needs best. Great usable amp modeling and effects, easy to dial in the sound you want. Great strong sound from a fairly small package. Responsive to the degree of pick attack. I compared the Champion 20 to the Mustang I. I preferred the simplicity of the Champion. Didn't need all the techno bells and whistles. The open back seems to have more depth of sound than the closed back Mustang. If it got stolen I would not hesitate to replace it with another Champion.

        I bought this amp because it had many features of more expensive amps. I hooked this amp to my big sound system and the results are great. The system sounds like a much more expensive Fender amp. I am very satisfied.

          Comments about Fender Champion 20 Guitar Combo Amp:

          I've been a Fender fan for years. I had purchased a "Princeton 65" some years ago and have been very happy with it. I can say the same about this little "Champion" it really lives up to its name. I just wish I had the same features and effects on my Princeton. It has plenty of power for smaller venues and practice and makes even a amateur picker like me sound almost professional.

          Ordered This Little Power Box on the 15th, Received it on the 17th amazing shipping from Musician's Friend. For the Size and the Price This Amp is Awesome. The Clear Channel is just that Clear, and so many different sounds and speeds to choice from. The Delay is wonderful as with the reverb. I couldn't be Happier. This is a good Amp for Just about any type music. Of course its small and Its not Concert Grade, but It comes through Loud and Clear. If you want a small Light Weight Good Sounding easy to Use Amp. Then Give this one a go. You will not be disappointed.
