I have used a Tech 21 Trademark 10 for many years as an analog recording amp with good results as it had an XLR jack in its back panel so easy to record. Still, I wanted the body and detail a real tube amp has for guitar and this Super Champ X2 really delivers on that. To use this amp as a "recording preamp" I found out (from Fender) that you need to have an 8 ohm load on the speaker out jack or risk blowing it up as is true for most tube amps. So I made one. I got an 8 ohm resistor from Parts Express, wired that to a 1/4" jack and done for very little cost.

Still, I find that while the range of recorded tones coming out of the Line Out jack is just great, the recorded tone does not have the bark and presence that running it through a great speaker does. If you can record the output of a great speaker, please do so. I do like having the 16 different amp emulation choices and really like some of the effects that I dont have like "Vibratone" and "Tremolo".

In all, a very musical and creative recording tool in my studio.

I had to return this amp. 'cause of the lack of an FX. Loop. I'm a jazz/fusion player so I liked the clean ch. and the distortion channel -BUT- not being able to use the FX. loop to connect to my volume pedal it become immediately a big issue. Having a volume pedal it's a major part of my sound, I've being using it for years, putting the pedal up front in the chain isn't the same thing, it becomes an expression pedal, for that I rather use the volume knob on my guitar. I should have thought this more in details. Also the voicing knob isn't gig friendly, imagine the situation, it's dark, you're playing....you're not gonna be there counting "How many notches clockwise is my fab. distortion ?" Sure you can take a note but, if you have been there you know that isn't the most practical thing to do. Too bad though, the amp sounds great, It wouldn't have cost much to Fender to add an F.X. loop. This amp is good for studio work or if you're used to an expression pedal instead of Master volume.

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

    Got this for Christmas from my wife. She knew I had owned classic fender amps in the past (two fender bassman blackface heads and a bandmaster) it was a thoughtful gift. Then I plugged it into my Fender D-412 and right off the bat the clean sound was very similar to my old Bassman 50 watt head. I checked out the modeling sounds in the manual and went to the tweed Bassman. Yup pretty much spot on. Checked out the Princeton next, wow! Fantastic. So many great American tones in here. I was also impressed with the headroom. The British sounds are a little blah or at least seem to be hollow parodies of British sounds. Seems to be taking all my pedals well (little big m#%!, morely wah, modded tubescreamer, radial boost) I should mention I am using this in a mini wet/dry rig set up with all my wet effects going to my Blackstar HT-5 and the Super-Champ handling the dry sound. I will likely swap the groove tubes out for some of the other recommended brands but this head sounds great stock. Haven't tried the fender fuse with it yet but it will be fine to dive into this when I have more time. Only thing that irked me a little was not including the footswitch. Come on Fender, you included the footswitch cord but not the pedal? A headphone jack effects loop and aux. input would have been nice as well but I'm sure this would increase the price of this head as well.

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

        don't let the 15 watts fool you, i hooked it up with 2 - 1x12 egnater cabs, it's got a LOT of volume (wish there was a 25-30 watt model)…i immediately loved the many clean tones i could get (with a compressor out front)…first channel is a nice clean tone (ok with pedals), but you can tweak the 2nd channel for even better/fuller clean tones…2nd channel works better with pedals for me (especially the twin/vox settings)…keeping the gain down lets the pedals do their work…
        the heavy distortion in the 2nd channel's 16 voices is ok, fender's are the best…the mesa/marshall type are (a bit brittle/thin to me) but keeping the gain in check and depending on what guitar (pups) you're using, you can dial in some nice tones…the effects are very good and all of them useable…i like the simplicity of the amp and that i can use it with different cabs…i haven't used the usb cable yet to tweak inside of fuse (looking forward to that)…the only negative is that you have to have the speaker connected to use the line out and the usb…but at this price point, who cares?…it's a great value…i'm digging it…:)

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

            Nice little tube amp! I have several small amps.[10 in all] I have the matching Fender 12" speaker cab, [It's rated at 80 watts, so it can be used with a BIGGER amp too!] One Pre-amp tube and a pair of 6V6's Nice fender sound! Get the Foot switch, to toggle between ch1 and ch2. Other button turns on/off-effects! I called Fender, and they said (2) 8 ohm loads "could" be used, and it "shouldn't" run HOT with the resulting 4 ohm load. Ya need spkrs. with in/out jacks, or a junction box, to do that! I ran it for quite a while with 2 Kustom 10" w/horn P/A Boxes. did fine at 4 ohms. However I wasn't Blasting! Nice little home or studio rig! Big enough for any Small/Med. venue if you use the line out to the P/A. I played Pro, for 45 yrs.- so Trust me! Back then I used a Peavey Black Widow Artist, Solid State Pre, 4X 6L6 Output stage. 12"BW Spkr. Weighs a ton! Still got it! I even ran that to the Mixer, to Spread Out the Guitar. No need for that kind of Power anymore. Didn't really need it then! This little Fender ROCKS!

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

            I'm using this little tube amp, in my home studio! It sounds Great. BTW, I've owned a couple vintage Super Reverbs, a Blond Bandmaster, a Quad Reverb- [a Twin, w/ 4x!2s[. I have an ancient 60's Epi Pathfinder RVT [reverb trem,amp],With 2 6V6s and the usual compliment of 12AX7s -12AT7s etc. Typical '60s type tube amp! The Fender is Louder, BUT, They Always were Louder than Gibson/Epiphone amps, of the same rated power!! The Champ is nice and warm, I just got the matching 12" speaker cab, I really love the little' Piggy-Back' Champ! reminds me of better days gone by! I wish that they/d have put the steel corners on the Champ, But-- Can't have everything! I'll add the corners!

              I use this amp in my studio where it will stay. I was amazed at the punch and warmth it has. I can't say enough about this amp except you can't go wrong with this one. Like the Fender Fuse software which I find useful. The F/X and Modeling is nice too! I bought another amp from MF to use for jamming with friends. I thank everyone for their reviews , very helpful for making a purchase.

              I really enjoy this amp tubes and modeling are a very cool thing. One thing that did bother me alittle is when cfine tuning with fender fuse you have about 1/3 of the functions fuse will run for the mustangs. Don't get me wrong I love the amp I have gotten excellent tone out of it but just wish I could have stored some more of the effects into the amp apposed to carrying a pedal board
