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.

I bought this as a practice amp, looking for something that was easy to use but had some features to it. Since I already had a Fender Mustang I thought I'd try this one. Thought this certainly is easy to use, the sound quality is not very good. I've had it for a month, tried different guitars and about every combination of settings possible. I spend more time adjusting than playing - the sound quality just isn't there. Maybe it's just me, but I plan on getting rid of this one and trying another...

Comments about Fender Champion 20 Guitar Combo Amp:

I first bought this amp, my FIRST Fender, as a practice amp. I was shocked by the VOLUME & the Quality EFFECTS, but i was disappointed by the lack of foot control. But still i decided to challenge my bandmates humor by taking this LITTLE amp to our gig at a local bar..... their jaws dropped to hear how loud and clear this CHAMPION 20 was even from behind! Competing with the drums, bass, and singer was NO PROBLEM! And between sets, I played DJ from the AUX INPUT, again a pleasant surprise! Now, it cant compete in a live set over 150 people, but it is worth the money in smaller sets! Great for ANY KIND OF MUSIC with the Amp Voicing & Effects! Try it, You WILL LIKE IT!!!

I like the ability to easily input music from an iPad while playing along, and the ability to listen through headphones with the speaker cut out. I can practice without disturbing my wife!

Fun no nonsense amp with great effects and great sound. Gave it as a gift but after testing it out I loved it more than my Marshall Valvestate 8080.

      Comments about Fender Champion 20 Guitar Combo Amp:

      Love the many different sounds and effects you get from this amp. Much more powerful than I expected. The headphone jack makes it easy to practice while my husband is watching tv or sleeping, so I get in much more time than I would otherwise. It's going to bring me to the next level. I really love this little amp!

              I'm still a beginner. I've been using a portable Pignose for two years, which I adore, but Im blown away by the variety of sounds that you can get out of this little Champ. The Chorus and Reverb sound so pretty. It's also much more powerful than i expected. The headphone jack makes it easy for me to practice while my husband watches tv. Great price as well. Love it!
