      Comments about Fender Champion 40 Guitar Combo Amp:

      I sold a Fender 25r to buy this, its a great amp. Loud and warm the two channels is great, I bought the foot switch, it switches channels and turns effects off and on.
      I replaced the stock speaker with an eminence Texas Heat and it opens up this amp all the way, it sounds warm and loud at 7 the clean is clean and low end is clear.

      Good mids and highs lows are awesome.

      Comments about Fender Champion 40 Guitar Combo Amp:

      I got this amp and it plays great 4 jazz what I mainly use it 4. This is a good gigging and 4 the price and if not loud enough I mike it to a pa. This a back saver and a good to go amp and 4 the budget of your wallet, check and pocket book. It is easy to handle and fiddle with. If u play jazz in a coffee house or club(miked) don't want 2 lug yo heavy freaking tube amp, then this is yo best bet 4 the price or o-t-d price u can get 4 it. my money is well spent 4 this amp. It is you choice if u keep or change the stock speaker 4 yo sound. it is great the way it is 4 me.

        Comments about Fender Champion 40 Guitar Combo Amp:

        I've had so many setups I cannot remember. Fender and Marshall amps have been my primary sound live and in studio. My main gigging amp is the 40 watt Fender Hotrod Deluxe. Love it! Also had a 50 watt SS Marshall amp just in case..... never had to use it but it's a great amp too.

        As far as guitars I love the Fender. Have had many other guitars including Carvin, Kramer, Gibson copies, Ibenez, but more Fenders than I can count.

        I first plugged in with just my guitar to see what this little "Champion" had to offer. Played around with all the dials and settings. Not too bad.

        Then I hooked up the BOSS GT-3. Yeah, I know it's outdated, but that is part of my gigging gear too. I really enjoyed the sounds. The only real thing missing is that classic tube "warmth". Now I have a new standby. This Champion will never compare to the Hotrod Deluxe but in that once in a lifetime pinch it works.

        Overall it doesn't matter where you are. If I were to speculate I'd bet several renowned musicians have this in their arsenal.

        Happy strumming!!

        Comments about Fender Champion 40 Guitar Combo Amp:

        I use 2 of these amps wit a Boss GT 100 and play in stereo.

        I love solid state Fender amps because they are so clean, basically you just use them to rise the sound and preamp with the effects board. Playing in stereo sounds so good and fills a room.

        I highly recommend these amps as they are loud, light and well worth the money.

          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.

            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.
