I've been playing guitar since 1985. I've played a few different guitars through this amp. Sounds amazing with a les paul w the burstbuckers. Sounded Dull when my Son played throught it with his $200 Ibanez. But I lent him my les paul and he sounded great. The amp responds perfectly with good guitars, not so much with cheaply made guitars.

Poor sound quality and low volume , look's ok but doesn't even have the power that my blue's jr. has and its 15 watt's. Not a good amp too make any recording's with.

Everything you could ask for.

Comments about Fender Champion 100 Guitar Combo Amp:

I have several amps that I use in my home studio and this one is by far my "go to" amp. It delivers such a wide range of sounds that it makes the others almost obsolete. It can go hard and crunchy to clean in the blink of an eye. The 100 watts of power it packs can blow the windows out, but doesn't lose tone at lower volumes. If I were still playing gigs I'd pack this amp up for every show. And the great thing is, this amp is affordable to almost anyone who needs an amp.

      Comments about Fender Champion 100 Guitar Combo Amp:

      Purchased this guitar amp so I would not have to lug my old 90 pound Fender tube amp around for small gigs. i found it packs a punch and can stand up volume wise to all other instruments when on stage. For the price you cannot go wrong and it is a lot lighter. I found if you place it on a amp rack tilted back it really sounds good.
      I would buy another one.

        Comments about Fender Champion 100 Guitar Combo Amp:

        Bought this amp after seeing good reviews. Was tired of lugging around my thirty year old, ninety pound Peavey that I thought I'd never replace. This amp blew me away. Loud, clean or dirty, love the variety of sounds. On board effects good enough to retire some pedals. I never expected all this from a transistor amp. The more I play it the better it gets. Minor nit, it's a little noisy with an IPod and head phones plugged in at same time. But I didn't buy it to use as a headphone amp. Never owned a Fender amp until this one. Not disappointed at all!

            Comments about Fender Champion 100 Guitar Combo Amp:

            Love tubes but it was getting costly with the issues that arise with tubes and the heat they produce. This amp has a great "clean" sound and a couple of the modeling settings are pretty good, ie the tweed and blackface settings. The reverb and delay sound good to me. I use pedals to get the sound I want, making this a good amp for my needs.

            Comments about Fender Champion 100 Guitar Combo Amp:

            Had been reading alot of reviews, so I thought I'd give this amp a shot. First off, I have nothing bad to say about this amp & it's features. For someone wanting alot of options for finding their sound, this is it. A great selection of voicings, and pretty nice effect selection, too. Loud? Oh yes. Alot of bass on tap, plenty of treble & mids to get you close to where you want to be. Weight was pretty manageable (even for a heart problem like me!) All in all, a nice amp for a reasonaable price. But, it wasn't for me. I guess I didn't know it at first, but once you get used to a valve amp (I've had 'em) you just get used to it, I guess. Yes, there's a few quirks with tubes & maintenance, but you have to do that with the vehicle that gets you to the gig, too - right? Just part of the territory. But, imo, well worth it. I just bought another Fender Pro Junior & returned the Champion. Tubey's just have that certain something, and I've found it with the pure, simple Pro Junior. A couple of pedals for specific purpose - and I'm finally there. Kudos to Fender for a really great solid state amp, tho. Looks are great, too. If solid state is for you with no muss, no fuss - check this amp out. It's a great deal. For me, it was missing that certain something. Thanks to the guys @ GC Pgh for the great service!

            Comments about Fender Champion 100 Guitar Combo Amp:

            Love the sound of this amp. A little to powerful for my use but at mid to low volume still sounds great and even accents the effects I'm using. Both the clean and the overdrive channels are easy to use and sound great with no pedals needed.
            For even more flexibility adding some simple pedals, delay, chorus, acoustic simulators sound great as well.

            Comments about Fender Champion 100 Guitar Combo Amp:

            Just got this amp and for my needs, singer playing rhythm and piano, my requirements are not that of a smoking lead guitarist. I really love the clean sounds and effects... slap back delay is great among many others and I get the right crunch when a song calls for it. Very clean and more power than needed considering we mic everyone. Would not need to in many small to medium clubs, but we still prefer to. My only concern which remains to be seen is that I have had two Fender amps and after 9 to 12 moths each started to have loud ground buzz issues which were fixed by a service center by re- soldering the whole back panel, and then they were great. They say all Fender amps come poorly soldered from the factory and eventually need the fix. I guess we'll see. Great amp for my needs !

            great amp

            By PAUL

            from mpls. mn

            Comments about Fender Champion 100 Guitar Combo Amp:

            I recently purchased this amp with the intention of having a back up amp for my fender jr. After 40 years of playing (I am in noway a pro but I can keep up with a lot of folks. )I have learned that amps can quit on you at any time and lower end tube amps are even more likely. I play in a Blues band and as we are aging the excess volume is becoming more of an issue especially in the smaller venues. like I said before this was for back up but I decided to try it out a few times and I am absolutely impressed with its performance. It is very simple to use , I set it on a black face dirty setting with about 5 on gain and a little reverb and that was all it took to get some great Strat blues tones. The great thing about this amp is I can use it for practice at really low volumes and then take out for a show and really not change anything and get the same results. NICE. I am a long time tube guy like most others but I am also a realist and if I can get great sound and not have to carry a bunch heavy stuff and keep a bunch of different amps around, hey I'm all for it. This weighs 40 pounds, not bad compared to its tube counterpart.

              Comments about Fender Champion 100 Guitar Combo Amp:

              I have had this amp for almost a year now and I truly enjoy it. Its LOUD so be careful. I love the clean tones from the clean side of this amp with a touch of the delay, the tap button is great for customizing your sounds. I do tend to find myself using the 3rd setting (more distorted) on the Tweed / distortion side and have created some great vintage rock sounds. If you want to go crazy kick in the 2nd Metal setting for a more modern hard rock / metal sound. I am not a novice and own several other amps including a Marshall DSL100 which I also love. This is a great amp with some cool effects for a decent price.
