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.

This amp is not a bad amp compared to a lot in its price range. It has a variety of amp models and blends in a tube power amp backing to add some warmth to its models. 15 watts of power actually can get some decent volume cranked. Has 2 different channels one without effects and models and one with. The one thing I found impressive is that the high gain stuff actually sounds really really good to me. I was expecting a sterile fizzy gain but this is really smooth and easy to dial in. I really was happy with its sound. It handles mid gain and clean also incredibly well. The main drawbacks of this amp is that there is no mid control. Your mid frequencies seem to be set by what model you are using.Also the effects are fairly lackluster. All you have to control them is a selector knob and level control. While I feel this is good if you are looking to add a touch of reverb anything past 3 or 4 tends to overpower the rest of the amps tone and make it sound like you are in a cave or something. Additionally despite this amps sound after a year of moderate use it stopped providing a steady signal and would power on and then the sound would immediately fizz out. I thought it was the tubes at first but taking it to a tech revealed that the computer chip that controls all the models actually burnt out rendering this amp useless. Without the chip being replaced it is pretty much dead weight. I think its a good amp and I would end up giving it a better score if the durability and construction were a little better. I feel the ventilation could have been designed slightly more intuitively to limit this issue. I will not be buying another to replace and will instead be looking for an alternative all tube head.

    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.

          with the amp via USB. Works wonderfully !

          and this amp exceeds all my expectations.
          Great shopping provided also.

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

            We needed an amp for our rhythm guitarist. He uses a very soft pick on a vintage Guild hollow body. We use amp stands and mic (SM57) our amps on stage. As with most groups, equipment size and weight are important so we try to stay under 30#. We liked the Fender amps because of the reverb and our short list came down to the Blues Jr. and the Champ. While our first choice was the Fender Blues Jr., the price difference and the owner's playing style made this the clear choice.

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

            This little amp has some power to it. That was apparent right out of the box. I was able to play with another guitar, drums, and bass. With that said, the amp has two minor problems. I read the reviews about changing the speaker, so I purchased the Eminence Ragin Cajun, but tried out the factory speaker first. The standard speaker was just weak, it weighed maybe half that of the eminence speaker. Once I changed and broke the new speaker in, the sound was phenomenal. Not to mention that you can customize the voices and effects settings on the amp using the Fuse software. That made the sound even better. The second issue was the grill buzzing. This was easily fixed by putting some shims in between the bottom of the grill and the cabinet. So, if you are going to buy this amp, consider changing the speaker and that minor fix with the buzzing issue and you will have yourself a mean little combo that sounds great and is louder than it appears.

              i would have given this amp 5 stars if it could have had the clean channel for editing, as the model channels are. Clean is a great deluxe tone lush and clear, effects are great, verbs very useful.Fuse software tweaking is a must however.In my opinion ,you need a booster in the front of your chain and an extention cab ..i use a 212 cab. The models are great, my fave is a high gain supersonic , gain on about 5 boosted ..very sweet. Use a bogner xtc red for hard rock ..super sonic for lead blues ..and golden cello for hendrixy type stuff ..Its all I need plus a wa and tuner ..check this out it rocks.
