      Comments about Fender Champion 40 Guitar Combo Amp:

      Light weight.sounds great.....nice but limited modelling choices that really work, good but also limited efx package, that all work as they should.ONLY issue is the wide open back of amp.........and somewhat thin box construction, Even so the tone and volume from this amp were quite a pleasant surprise.

      Don't let the price and 40 watts keep this from your bucket list. It can handle professional jobs as long as the work load and expectations are reasonable.

        Comments about Fender Champion 40 Guitar Combo Amp:

        Nice practice amp featuring headphone jack. The on-board effects simulate tones achieved with my effect boxes and tube amp, so practice with these tones is easy and doesn't involve hooking up effects array. Loud enough for casual jamming and light enough to take anywhere. It's just what I needed for home use.

        The fx features are great. It is light enough to move around and powerful enough to make big sound. Use it for practice and take it on stage and mike it for great sound anywhere.

        Champion 40 "good little Combo amp"

              Comments about Fender Champion 40 Guitar Combo Amp:

              The champion 40 is a great little Combo amp versatile and loud for its size. I play in a Ska roots rock band with seven members and a full horn section. Skeptical and a little concerned that I would not be heard over such a large group thought I would bring it to rehearsal and try it out. Surprise,the amp is loud enough at about 12 o'clock or five on the dial slight break up at that volume but really fairly good,its a two channel amp first channel has a very nice fender classic clean sound with a little break up as you turn the volume up ware this amp really gets cool is the second channel where it has many cool old amplifier sounds and i like most.that being said it wouldn't be my go to amp in most live situations not warm enough or thick enough sound in my opinion if thick is a good description for the tube amp I usually use. However I'd say for rehearsal or use at home it's much better than what you normally get at this price.

                  If your playing light to medium gigs this is the little amp you need, if your a Fender man (or gal).
                  We do a duo gig at a wine and beer cafe and this little amp is perfect. I've been a Fender man as long as I can remember, I played through a 66 vintage Bandmaster for close to 40 years and always sounded better than I actually was. But this little Champion is exactly what the name implies it's a champ. Buy one you won't be dissapointed.

                    Comments about Fender Champion 40 Guitar Combo Amp:

                    I consider myself a decent acoustic guitar player, but I love electric blues and wanted to take a shot at learning some licks. I didn't want to put much money into this endeavor and wanted to get an amp that would be fairly easy to dial in a decent tone. Armed with a Robert Cray Strat, I wanted to stay in the Fender family. I listened to some reviews, and the Champion got good grades for ease of use and blues tone so it seemed like a no-brainer. It sure fit into my budgetary requirements. I've owned several other Fender amps, both SS and tubed, and their tone varied a good bit. I wasn't really looking for a variety of tones but just one tone that would work for me. It was easy to dial in what I wanted, and the Champion 40 seems to have been a very good choice...
