      very nice small Amp Head, and especially handy when you use the FUSE software and interface. Nice cleans, and nice amp modeling for various Fender and other amps.

      Great amp with many useful tones, especially the cleans. For metal tones I prefer my stompboxes but they are still quite serviceable, if not great. For the money, a wonderful amp. I have other lunchbox amps and none touch it for versatility and tone.

      Comments about Fender Super-Champ X2 HD 15W Tube Guitar Amp Head:

      I just got this amp yesterday and immediately went to rehearsal. Plugged into a Hughes and Ketner Cab and was absolutely blown away by the sound. I have been playing for over 45 years, using several different types of amps including old bassmans, super reverbs, twin reverbs, vox, acoustic, kustom, etc. Based on other reviews, I was expecting pretty much, but got even more. This amp is really amazing (at any price) Fender really built a gem (again).......My (heavy) vintage twin is now relegated to a back-up. Going to build a cab with a 12' Jensen Mod to go with the head.....get one of these NOW!

        Comments about Fender Super-Champ X2 HD 15W Tube Guitar Amp Head:

        Great sound at low volume! Also has the power to cut thru a mix in the clubs, and just jam out loud! Wouldn't believe 15 watts sounds so good. Seems it really likes the SG's. What I don't like is the rotary control for the f/x. Everybody does it and they all suck. The combinations I want can't be dialed in. Fortunately the clean channel allows the use of my own effects chains so no real problem. The Fuse software wasn't very useful to me as I don't want to sound like someone else, and I don't want to waste time downloading when I got an IDEA! The line out is good for recording as it plugs right into the line in on the R8 Zoom. It works very well as an acoustic amp as well, just mike the guitar, play with the effects and get some great one of a kind sounds. On the downside, there is no phones jack (big deal), so practice in the middle of the night is difficult but not impossible. All in all, a good Fender amp.

        I bought this amp to have a more versatile home rig. This little tube driven head seems to do it all. From the heaviest crunch to nice warm jazz tones and effects. And everything in between. I'm so impressed I might have to see if it will keep up with a drummer at rehearsals. May bring to next studio session as well...

        Comments about Fender Super-Champ X2 HD 15W Tube Guitar Amp Head:

        This little amp head is an absolute killer. Out of over 25 years of playing music, I think this is the best amp I've ever bought for the money. And, I've had lots - Mesas, Fenders, Line6, Marshalls, Carvins, Digitech Modelers, Oranges....you name it.

        What I love about this amp is that its super clean channel (channel A Super Champ) and it has 16 other amp models, combined with a tube. I'm usually not a huge fan of modelling amps, but I gotta tell ya, this thing is excellent. Out of the box it sounds good, but the key is the FUSE software. It's a great piece of equipment to dial in "your sound". I'm running this thru a Carvin 212 vertical stack, and it sounds amazing. Seriously, it's better than my Carvin V3, at half the price and a lot more flexible. It also loves pedals - no fizz at all and my handwired VOX wah wah - creamy and smooth, probably the best wah I've ever heard/personally played.

        I record out of it (via the out jack) and it's clean as a whistle into the PA/computer. Nice and crunchy when you want it and plenty powerful for a gig, plus totally portable. It'll give you Fender Twang or great bust a gut distortion (my favorite is playing "China Grove" on the Semisonic - setting #13) on my Carvin CS3 (Les Paulish); just nails the sound.

        I am telling you, it's an unbeatable deal. I've played it 3x so far, and it's my favorite hands down. Blows everything else out of the water. Now I gotta sell all this other stuff!

        I am VERY HAPPY with this purchase. Do yourself and grab one before they're gone. You WILL BE AMAZED. I was.

        Comments about Fender Super-Champ X2 HD 15W Tube Guitar Amp Head:

        I actually bought one of these just after it came out and unusually for me bought it 'blind'. I have, since that day been absolutely blown away with this little beauty. I won't repeat what everyone else has said but I will state that it's all true! I found my way around it's power limitations though: I bought a RAT dummy load and use the 'recording' line out to a Tech 21 Power Engine 60. I use this to gig my Princeton too and it works a treat. All the power I need and it means I can use this little stunner for virtually everything.
        Great base tones, effects are good too but prefer the control that independent pedals give me, so can't really comment. Covers almost all ground I've ever been confronted with. Toyed with getting one of the Vox AC30VR amps but really have no need with this setup!

          Comments about Fender Super-Champ X2 HD 15W Tube Guitar Amp Head:

          Further to my review of Jan 7 2013, I used this amp and matching 1x12 cab for a year's worth of performance, rehearsal and recording situations and so far it has shone every time. My opinions of this amp have since altered, but overall not for the worse. On the downside, with a modest 15 watts I often need to slave it via the line-out to another amp for gigs, esp where you don't have good monitor sound, and loading an extra amp is a pain. But the tones out of this head are so good it's totally worth it to me. It's loud enough on its own for rehearsal with my loud-ish hard rock band, and ideal for recording as you can get such variety of great tube tones. Best of all, I get a ton of compliments on the tones out of the SCX2. Every other musician I have played with has said how good it sounds. It's versatile – I don't use a lot of effects, but I used FUSE to customize all my effect and voice settings and save them to the amp in my slots of choice. If you wanted to you could have a unique voice and effects setting for specific songs in your set. But this is not a Mustang, it's best at raw, tube-driven clean and overdrive tones, it excels tone-wise across the board from clean jazz to metal. Now that the tubes and speaker are fully broken in, the amp just sounds killer, there is no other word for it. I almost didn't buy this amp because I was worried it would not be loud enough – well it's not actually, sometimes – but man I am glad that I did, what a smokin' amp this little beauty is.

            This amps really rocks! Just getting started and there are so many choices with this amp and fender fuse software. Sounds really great with closed back cabinet. I'm an old rocker from the 70s and 80s, and this gets the sound right on target. If your looking for a vintage tube sound at a fraction of the the price........ buy it!
            Thanks again Musicians friend for another great deal! You gals and guys are outstanding!

              Excellent choice for a lower powered all tube amps. Goods retro sounds at lower volume levels.Sounds very much like the higher priced Fender tube amps, but at a lower cost.would definitely recommend it. Also highly recommend purchasing it through Musicians friend because of there knowledge and customer service! They are adsolutely number one in my book! Thanks again!!!!!!
