    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.

    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:

      As the bassist in the band I wanted a small guitar amp for practicing my 6 string and doing my home recordings. I tried a Line 6 but took it back, too much malarky to wade through for too little return. I was weary of the Mustang and Peavy for the same reason. The Champion 20 is easy to use, perfect for those of us who want to dial it in, not spend hours fooling with half arsed presets or creating new ones. Plug in and tweek your sound on the dials, the way it's always been done.

      The "amp models" are really just tone variations and you dial in the basic models. Let's face it you're not getting a true Tweed or blackface sound from an 8" solid state amp, ain't happenig. You can get a those "style tones" but it's more about just having options in sound. Good sounding basic effects as well. In amateur recording it sounds worlds better than trying to use amp models and basic effecs in my DAW.

      I gig as a bass player so I won't perform with this amp. If I did a guitar gig I would not hesitate to bring this to a small coffee house type setting. Or even mic into it for a slightly larger venue.

      Small enough to carry around the house or throw into the car for a little show. Loud enough to be heard. Very attactive classic Fender styling.

      Overall I call this the best amp I've found in the price range. Excellent value.

      Great little amp that you can practice with using a laptop, iPod or drum machine running into the AUX Input. Lightweight and easy to carry into a jam session. I have even used it on small gigs.

        Comments about Fender Champion 20 Guitar Combo Amp:

        Great little amp for practice, has a surprising number of voices (different amp types) and effects for such a compact rig. I have it set up in my living room to use with one of my guitars, and it is surprisingly clear and LOUD!

        Comments about Fender Champion 20 Guitar Combo Amp:

        The Princeton Voice is my favorite; and, it's right on the money with my actual Princeton Reverb Amp. The other voices are also on the money. If you record at home, or in the studio, you will love the Champion 20, its convenience and it's portability. Simply setup an SM57 aimed precisely at its 8-inch speaker, and you will love what you record. It's an excellent value in my opinion. Oh yes. One more thing. I've been a player for more that 50 years. :)

            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.

              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.
