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:

    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!

                The product is awesome. It gives enough selections to try out different styles of music (metal, blues, etc.) It has good projection and sound without being muddy.

                I opened the first box and almost died opened the second (actual box for amp) and was punched in the face with the smell of a whole new world of possibilities. The sound wasn't as loud as i hoped without gain but when I looked into the manual and saw that there were 12 different distortions it blew my mind.

                  Comments about Fender Champion 20 Guitar Combo Amp:

                  I usually use a front man 25r, it is a little heavy to carry around. I could not believe that this little git. could sound close to my 25 with it s 10 inch speaker. after buying a couple different small amps that sounded poor, I packed up my guitar and went to guitar center and tried one of the champion 20 s. before I played 1 scale I knew this was it. I play clean, with reverb. I could not believe the base that comes out of an 8 inch speaker. I was really impressed. I can not tell you much about dirty as I do not play it.
