Price, sound, great stock speaker, new modeling sounds and choices, 15 watts tube RMS, channel switching, light weight and Fender quality. Need I say more?
Sometimes people create a product so good that they just leave it alone, let it run its course and then eventually retire it......not Fender!!! They take the extremely popular and amazing Fender Super Champ XD, an amp most people who have tried have also bought, and dramatically improve upon it!! I have the original and love it, but I must admit this new model is even better in several different levels of operation. First, let me say both amps are great, but since the Super Champ XD is no longer available as new, the X2 tells us why by its amazing operational skills and value. The new version is highlighted by a great sounding stock speaker, excellent tube power @ a conservative 15 watts RMS, and most important of all slight modeling changes that give one more "Fender Sound" options than the earlier model. You still have many choices for those who want distorted, thrasher sounds, but, for true Fender fans, you also receive several new classic Fender sounds to choose from as well. For any professional or soon to be pro musician, this is one amp that can serve you in practically any gig situation. It simply sounds amazing and is very powerful and light weight to haul around. Seriously, unless you are an absolute "Rock Star" who needs walls of amplifiers for a big concert venue.....make sure you check this baby out. Did I mention that the price is very reasonable? This is one of the new standards in the Fender line and it is now made in Mexico instead of China. Should be a plus. Either way, check it out, you won't be sorry......this is one great amp!!!!!! By the way, I am no rookie, I have played professionally for over 40 years and I think this amp will be popular with many age levels and styles of players. Thanks for reading and I hope this helps you in your music.

Nice little amp, great features. I like the tubes comlimenting the modeling, as I don't like straight modeling. Nice variety of amps and FX. Wish there was a Mid and Presence control.

The bad:
Every combo I've owned has some sort of rattle or buzz somewhere, including my Princeton Reissue, and that thing cost nearly $1K, which is rediculous. This amp is no exception, and the first day out of the box I had to trace a buzz down to a bad speaker; the speaker has a buzz like the paper was ripped, but there is no rip anywhere. It does this completely out of the cabinet, so it's not cabinet or baffle rattle. I get so tired of purchasing products and then having to return/exchange them, only to get another one with some other problem.

Fender Fuse:
I feel Fender threw us a bone with this. You can create presets on your computer to your heart's content, but unlike the Mustang and G-DEC, you can't upload presets to the amp. You can only create them, store them on your computer, and use them when the amp is connected via a USB cable. This is completely useless if you want to take the amp anywhere with you. All this software serves to do is highlight the fact that 50% of the amp's true features are completely unusable without a computer connection. Therefore, I threw the software in the Recycle bin.

Lastly, the amp does not recall your Tap tempo setting after you change voicings or turn the amp off - there's no way to save your Tap setting. It's annoying to have to reguess my Delay setting every time I turn the amp on.

This is a nice amp that could have been so much better. It's worth keeping because it has a few nice tones, but now I have to replace the speaker and settle for less functionality than I was expecting.

It would be 3/5 if the speaker wasn't broke, and 5/5 if you could also upload your presets to the amp. With two strikes against it, I gave it 2/5-Below average. I recommend it, but only to those who know what to expect.

    Comments about Fender Super-Champ X2 15W 1x10 Tube Guitar Combo Amp:

    This is a great little amp, and light enough for an aging musician like me to lug from home to gig and back. Not a Hot Rod Deluxe, like my last Fender, but it gets the job done. I did change the speaker to a Ragin' Cajun, and it gave it more volume and bottom end thump. Highly recommended amp for the money.

      Comments about Fender Super-Champ X2 15W 1x10 Tube Guitar Combo Amp:

      A '65 Princeton RI or '65 Deluxe Reverb RI it isn't but, for its size and cost it's OK for practice and home studio recording. I mainly use the tube channel (Channel 1) and only use channel 2 via optional footswitch for some overdrive (when I'm too lazy to hook up my pedal board...) and go light on the FX.

      I agree with everyone who said that the stock "made for Fender" ceramic speaker was lacking and disappointing. I thought about swapping it out for a Ragin' Cajun as many have done. But, I ended up replacing it with a Celestion Greenback 10" because I once had a '65 Princeton RI FSR unit that came with the Greenback and loved the sound over the usual Jensen ceramic C10. My modded X2 doesn't sound as good as the Princeton FSR, but the Greenback definitely made a sonic improvement to my ear. A bit expensive but, you do get what you pay for.

        Comments about Fender Super-Champ X2 15W 1x10 Tube Guitar Combo Amp:

        I love the sounds my Super Champ XD makes. I don't know if anyone would use all 16 voices regularly, but there are bound to be a few enjoy. My favorites are the overdriven blackface and the overdriven metal. I like to switch between the clean (which is modeled after blackface amps, and the overdriven blackface with the gain on 10.

        Mine has a Rajin Cajun speaker in it, and it makes quite a difference. I played one of these at the store and it didn't have the low end with the stock fender speaker.

        I play with a drummer and the super champ keeps up well. I turn it up to around 8, 8.5 and it's audible the entire time.

        I also run a Boss GT10 through it sometimes and it sounds good.

        I love this thing.

          Comments about Fender Super-Champ X2 15W 1x10 Tube Guitar Combo Amp:

          My main amp for years has been a Fender Deluxe, which has an all-tube signal path and wonderful sound. So I wasn't sure how I would like a small amp like the Super Champ. But I needed something that was easier to carry and still gives good sound. I have a small project studio in my basement and I play in church almost every weekend. The Fender Super Champ is a slight compromise in tone quality, but no one seems to notice except me. I love the fact that I can take a line-out direct to the sound board. It makes setup a snap.

          The amp modeling is nice. The only thing I miss is feedback. The digital pre-amp makes it hard to get any kind of musical feedback, so it doesn't let you get full use of the tubes.

          The size and weight make it perfect for gigging - if you play through a sound board. It ways a small fraction of what the Deluxe weighs, and that makes it worth it for me. I lose a little tone, but I save my back.

          I have used it in the studio when I needed a quick guitar part and I didn't want to take the time to mike the Deluxe. It worked great and the customer was very impressed with the results. With all the amp models you can dial up just about any kind of crunch you want. The sound from the speaker is decent, especially for its small size. It will never sound like a big amp in a heavy cabinet, but all that subtle tone gets lost when you play with a band anyway.

          The small tone goes away when plugged direct into the PA. The line-out signal is pretty good. You are not going to feel the thump you get from a big cabinet, but for small gigs this thing works great.

          I bought the amp cover, foot switch, and an amp stand at the same time I bought the amp. The amp stand points the sound right at my face and that helps me hear when the stage gets loud. I highly recommend an amp stand for gigging with this little Champ.

            This amp delivered exactly the performance and sound quality described by the promo literature for the Super Champ. The wide range of sound shaping options helped me find the tone I was looking for quickly. Unfortunately the 15W weren't enough to contend with a full band during rehearsals (the purpose for this little amp) so I returned it and purchased a slightly more powerful amp. Excellent support for the return transaction from MusiciansFriend.

            Comments about Fender Super-Champ X2 15W 1x10 Tube Guitar Combo Amp:

            I was looking for a small and reliable tube amp for practicing at home and was attracted by the favorable reviews and price of the Super-Champ X2. I've had Fender amps in the past, and the clean sound of a Fender tube amp is a beautiful thing. However, this amp just doesn't deliver. Now I get it that it's small and should be expected to be limited in tonal possibilities. However, for an amp advertised as a "real tube amp," once you switch to the second channel to use the range of available "voicings" -- supposedly a significant feature of this particular model -- it pretty much sounds like a small solid state amp: it just doesn't have that sweet tube amp sound. For a small practice amp, it's perfectly acceptable yet underwhelming. But if you're looking for the sound of a tube amp, I'd try something else.
