    Fits my beginner needs with sound a price

    Comments about Fender Champion 20 Guitar Combo Amp:

    This Amp is very good. I can get some good sounds out of it either with effects or no effects. It is basic and simple to use. It is a good choice for beginners because it is a step up from what you would get in a starter pack.Even though it is a one channel amp, it comes with custom voices that can deliver the sound of a two channel amp if not more. It also can make a good practice amp because of its small size and weight. You can leave it on the floor or put it on a table or shelf. It can get loud, I think it delivers all of the 20 watts. Great choice for someone on a budget, or someone that does not need an amp over 20 watts. For the price, it's a smart choice. You can't go wrong.

    Great amp - reasonable price

    Comments about Fender Champion 20 Guitar Combo Amp:

    Received this amp about 2 weeks ago and have used it several times. My last amp was an Ampeg Gemini II which I bought in 1968 and it still works! But I needed a small portable amp to use with my Gibson electric. The amp has a nice tone and good volume with my semi-hollow body guitar (and also a kid's cheapo guitar), and the effects are great. I like the reverb option which we use when amplifying a microphone instead of the guitar. Note that it's a single channel amp - ie, you can't use a mic and guitar together without using a mic pre-amp with the aux input. However, you *can* play music from your phone, for example, into the aux input and sing with the mic (and reverb) plugged into the main input - karaoke style!

    Perfect bedroom amp

    By

    Comments about Fender Champion 20 Guitar Combo Amp:

    When you don't have a surplus of room in your living space there really is no need for much more amp than what the Champion 20 gives you. From my experience unless you play out with a group anything over 15 to 30 watts is just overkill and wasted. Even if you do play out, most bar bands I have seen lately barely have their high dollar amps ticking over and have let most of the job to sound reenforcement and pedals for distortion/overdrive. This amp gives you all the great tone that Fender has developed with the Mustang series without the programing and menu surfing (a big plus I feel). Controls are traditional so that your grandfather would know what to do with it and has a great set of effects to color whatever the song calls for. Construction seems pretty sturdy and you really can't go wrong with Fenders 5 year warranty. Knobs feel smooth to turn and quality pots seem to have been used. If you want two channels go for the 40 as there is no footswitch capability. I have not tried it with pedals but I'm sure those with experience could make it a good platform to do so. The only drawbacks I see are the Power On light is just a small LED rather than a jewel light (not a real big deal but would have finished off the Blackface look),and to my ear the volume changes a little with each amp selected (again not a big deal, just adjust the volume). I wish it was made in USA but it's not 1975 anymore. If Fender Corp. reads this I honestly believe that if these were made in the USA for $50 to $75 dollars more most musicians would gladly pay for that badge of honor. Have had about a week now and i am just as satisfied as when i first fired it up.

    Nice Little Amp

    By 

    from Arlington, VA

    Comments about Fender Champion 20 Guitar Combo Amp:

    I purchased this amp to take with me to jam sessions and practice at the house. All in all it is a nice little amp. It is basic with a few effects available which to me was a bonus. I have had it for a couple of weeks now and at first thought about going up to the 40, but I don't really need the extra volume or the few extra effects, or size and weight. So I am satisfied with this amp because it fills my particular needs. If you have effect pedals you could really get some very cool sounds out of it. And for the money I think it was worth it. If you are a beginner this would be a VERY good amp to learn on.
