      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 Yeah, I know it's outdated, but that is part of my gigging gear too.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.

          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.
