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.

    This is my first tube amp & quickly has become my favorite amp. Definitely has more than enough power for me. If I want, it definitely has the power to rattle the walls in my bedroom.

Take the awesomeness of every Fender amp and put it into one home size package and you get the X2!!

        P.S. the built in Delay effect puts out a killer sound!

        I have had this amp for almost a year now. Took me a while to get used to the voicing channel, but this thing is very versatile.The Reverb is pretty good and the gain sounds natural. The clear channel is awesome cranked up. My lap Steele sound really good on the clear channel with the reverb. This amp sounds Great for Rock, blues,country and jazz. The bottom line is that this is a good Fender tube amp for the money!

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

        I got really excited about this amp based on the reviews but it just does not hold up to real sound quality. We love small amps in Nashville because we play out so much, just roll into the venue and mic it up, but it just did not cut mustard. As an example, one great guitarist in town, Jack Pearson who played with the Allman Brothers for a couple of years, he usually plays though a blues junior, even in big venues and makes it scream. This amp wouldn't do it. The clean channel just does not break up, the modeled side sounds great in your living room but then as soon as you add a drummer or mic it, it reveals it's true self and admits that it does not indeed have that weight and throw of real tube drive.

        So, I would buy this for my son or nephew etc to learn how to play guitar, but does not stand up to being an actually working man's amplifier. I see what they were trying to do, but I think that they just couldn't pull it off at that price point.

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

        What you get, for the money, is a nice little Fender tube amp. Add the footswitch, [for another cash outlay, plus a cable] a more useful amp with efx on/off and channel switching. Change the stock tubes and speaker, a much nicer amp.

        The SC platform is reasonably versatile, and with some tweaking of the gain and tone knobs, the voices can be incredibly accurate. Don't think it is loud enough? Use the line out jack to the board, or another amp.

        Watch your volume though, as each voice can jump in perceived output...why couldn't they have leveled them all equally?
        Also, I find, on the more 'gain-y' setting/voices, that I can't 'clean up' the dirt from the guitar volume pot...the price of digital modeling, I guess...
        Also, you can't upload the FUSE effects patch data into the amp! Pointless except for home recording. So that wheel of marvelous digital effects is limited to what the wheel allows you to combine. Want vibratone and delay? No, sorry...want chorus and reverb? Ain't happening. This has been an issue since the first SCXD, and Fender keeps its head in the sand. Push buttons for combining each effect would have been easy enough to do, guys!
        All in all, though, a useful basic amp for a decent price that can be modified and upgraded.

          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.
