I love my FSR SCX2! The fender fuse software is awesome. You get a bunch more effects on the computer, and you can have up to four effects at the same time (only while hooked up to fender fuse). I had a vox vt40+, and it was okay, but this fender gets a better vox sound than it did! The clean channel is okay, but the modeling tones are just amazing. I would recommend this to anyone who wants vintage tube tones for a great price
What a great little practice amp...a great little Champ. A wonderful sounding and efficient 10" speaker that gets plenty loud...with a wonderful voicing switch. 16 modeling amp switch and you can really hear the original Fenders, super on the acoustic setting; built in effects which sound great. All in all, a great deal with great sound; and the blonde looks classy. The Tele sounds as a Tele should when using it. Buy one, you will not regret it. Thanks Fender; Thanks all the great guys at GC. P.S. Cannot wait to tube it with JJ's, down the road.
If you'll bear with me, I'll just give some background for the sake of comparison. I bought this amp 3 days ago. I also own the Vibro Champ XD (The perfect practice amp) but I wanted something with a little bit more volume and bottom end to it. Initially, I bought the Mustang II but returned it to get the X2. The Mustang was a very impressive amp but now after comparing it to the X2, the Mustang was a toy. The X2 is a very organic sounding amp. Nothing digital sounding about it whatsoever. As I said, I have the Vibro Champ XD and also the Vox AC4TV 10" combo. The X2 is now definitely the class of these 3 amps. It's much fuller sounding than the Vibro and does clean far better than the Vox. It would be possible to mistake this amp for having a 12" speaker as the lows are very impressive. The Vox is a louder amp (not by much) but again, not as full sounding. If anyone said that they could tell that this was a hybrid amp, I'd be forced to call them a liar. Channel 1 is pure Fender Blackface clean. The voicings on channel 2 are very authentic and organic sounding on the Fender models. The Vox, Marshall and Mesa voicings aren't as convincing but if I wanted one of those amps, I would've bought one instead of the X2. The X2 isn't as tweakable with the Fuse software as the Mustang was. The tweaking is far more subtle (mainly just a "mid" eq) but it's enough to change the character of the amp to your liking. The Fuse software also gives you the option of removing the Vox Mesa Marshall voicings and adding more Fender voicings (very useful). As far as upgrading the tubes and speaker, I may do it somewhere down the line but I'm in no hurry to do so right now due to the quality of the sound in it"s "stock" condition. The tube compliment is 2- Groove tubes GT-6V6-C's and 1- Groove Tubes GT-12aX7-R. Like the Super Champ XD, I think the best speaker upgrade would be the Eminence Ragin Cajun for an increase in volume and more lows. Just so you know, I'm not some 14 year old kid saying that this is the best amp in the history of history but I would say that the X2 is probably a "Blues Junior" killer. This is not a knock on the Blues Junior, it's just that the quality of sound from the X2 doesn't justify paying for a Blues Junior (just my opinion). Anyway, if you're looking for an amp in the 10 to 20 watt range, I believe that the X2 has to be on your short list of amps to audition. Lastly, if you are a Metal player, look elsewhere. This is a Fender amp. This is for Buddy Holly to the Stones. I hope I wasn't too long winded and I hope this review helps with your search for your next amp. I will NOT be returning this amp.
