I had a Vibrochamp. Absolutely loved it but felt I needed more tweak ability. While its effects presets were probably the best you could ask for for 'fixed' settings, after about a month I was looking for variations it couldn't offer. This little powerhouse is exceeding my expectations after just one day. First of all the tone is startlingly good. Yes, the front end is digital, but then the signal passes through three tubes before it hits the speaker, and they do what tubes should. I've not owned any of the amps it claims to model, but everyone one of its 'voices' evokes very recognizable and very authentic tones. You've heard all these sounds before and unlike other modeling amps, even Fender's own Mustang series, these all sound natural and organic. I had a Mustang IV and this thing sounds SO much better. Compared to the Vibrochamp's 8" speaker, the 10" speaker in this amp, along with being fed by 2 6V6's instead of one, gives this amp a huge sound, with much better bottom end. I have an old Line 6 Ax2 100 wat amp with two 12" cones and this little guy hangs with it. You will be inspired by this little amp. And with 15 watts it's plenty powerful, but at only 24 pounds you won't give yourself a hernia carrying it around. So far so good; unbelievably good tone in a loud but smal package. But the real fun begins with using the Fuse software which you download for free from the Fender website. With this you can deep edit aspects of the voicings and make them your own. The first thing you get on most of the amp models is the all important middle tone control. This alone can radically alter the body of a voice and probably should simply have been provided on the face of the amp. But then there's transformer 'sag' and tube 'bias' as well as changing the speaker cabinet and of course, you can always select a different amp. Happy with your new concoction? Fuse let's you overwrite any of the 16 Voice positions on the actual amp with your new custom creations. You can do the same thing too with the effects settings, and like the amps themselves, there are additional parameters, and even entirely new effects, that you can add that go well beyond the presets. The hidden 'bonus' is the empty position for a 'stompbox' available on channel 2. There is a very decent sounding overdrive pedal you can put here or even a decent compressor, neither of which are available on the basic amp itself! While the stomp box selection can't be saved to one of the effects positions, the whole shmeggegy can be saved as a 'preset' on your computer. You can build up your library of presets as deep as you'd like! Another advantage over the Vibrochamp is that this is a two channel amp, the clean channel being modeled after a blackface Deluxe. But the real magic is being able to 'blend' this classically 'chimey' channel with channel 2 when using one of two British voices available there. This can only be done in the Fuse software and while I know it can be saved as a preset to your computer, I don't know if this little trick can be saved as one of the 16 voicings on the amp's rotary dial. But I can tell you that these British voices are thick and meaty, full of rich harmonics, even at lower gain settings. And that's when the amp is driven by my Blacktop Tele!! While I believe you could perform with this amp in smaller venues ( and a polite drummer) you'd have to make due with the two channels as your foot switchable options as the available foot switch will not allow you to access the 16 different voicings nor the different effect preset locations (though you can toggle them on and off). But get this, you can save entire collections of your 16 custom voices and presets together in their own groupings, so you could have 'home' or 'gig' profiles you download into the amp depending on your intentions. Not bad. I'm in pig heaven as they say. I no longer gig so I just wanted to have awesome Fender tube tones and the ability to tweak 'patches' beyond what the little 5-watt Vibrochamp could for my own playing and recording. This thing will do anything from country to metal with no sacrifice in tone, IMHO. The new big trend these days seems to be in these smaller, lighter, lower powered amps. In the last 3 1/2 months I've gone through: Fender Mustang, Blackstar HT-5R, Fender Vibrochamp and FINALLY this Superchamp X2. It has them all beat for tone and the computer Fuse tweak ability rivals the Mustang. I really don't see any other manufacturers trumping this effort.

Just tried an X2 at my local GC. Quite disappointed. Maybe it was the one I tried, but it didn't hold a candle to the discontinued Super Champ XD. Didn't have that "Fender Vibe", was boomy and uneven. IMHO, Fender had "it" with the XD but missed with the X2. Wish I could have said something better. Maybe it was the one I tried...

    Comments about Fender Super-Champ X2 15W 1x10 Tube Guitar Combo Amp:

    Best amp in this price range by far. Even better than some more expensive amps. It may not be 100% tube but your ears won't be able to tell much of a difference. I personally use the clean channel with some pedals rather than the models but the models can be great fun to play with.

      This little amp is the best I have ever had. Plenty strong enough for a home studio which is what I use it for.
      It has a line out on rear panel that I use to go directly into my interface. The only draw back here is that it doesn't bypass internal speaker. But no problem I just unplug the internal speaker from rear panel. I love Fender tube amps and this one fits the bill for the price.

          Comments about Fender Super-Champ X2 15W 1x10 Tube Guitar Combo Amp:

          I was looking for an amp that I could use at home without waking up the neighbors but still sounded like an authentic tube amp. This little amp rocks for just that purpose! There's a lot of great sounds available in the effects where I din't have to drag out any pedals too. I read several reviews that said the sound was weak. Don't believe them. There's plenty of meat to the sound and when putting an SM57 in front of it you'll get a massive sound you'll love. The only small negative was a rattle from the speaker mounting board due to it not being glued to the sides. This only happens when hitting a G chord. A little bit of adhesive and a couple of screws onside the amp fixed this issue in less than 10 minutes.

          i love it

          By Doug

          from denver, co

          Comments about Fender Super-Champ X2 15W 1x10 Tube Guitar Combo Amp:

          i am really happy with my purchase. i am fairly new to playing, however i have 5 amps and have tried some more at the store, taking them home. but this amp was the best ive tried. i use it for a practice amp and its perfect. with my 65 watt solid state amp i have to keep it on a volume of 2 which doesnt let them work enough. this amp i can keep in the middle range of the volume when i play which i think makes the amp work better. because its a tube amp, it sounds "real", ie, the tone is really nice. i notice a difference in response to my picking that is not there with solid state. ive never had a tube amp before, so this is a new world for me and i love it. also, the amp is light so i dont break my back lugging it. the built in effects are nice, i do wish that the effects could be independently used; and that you could control them with a pedal, more that just on/off. Other cons are possibly that the handle could be better built and more ergonomic, and when you use an extention speaker i have read that the 10" built-in doesnt work. i have not used the amp in a band situation yet, i wonder if the volume could get overtaken by a drummer. but, i understand you can run it direct into a PA. I use the amp for practice at home with a loud backing track and love it for that. The price is seems great for a new tube amp like this.

          Versatile Tube Amp

          By Andy

          from Holliston, Ma.

          Comments about Fender Super-Champ X2 15W 1x10 Tube Guitar Combo Amp:

          This amp is exactly what I was looking for. I tend to favor the clean sounds over the distorted sounds. It seems that the great majority of modeling amps are solid state and offer many more distortion based modeling sounds than clean sound variations. I am glad to say that the Super Champ offers that nice tube punch that solid state amps lack, and that the voicings offer several sweet clean to lightly broken up sounds. I have owned many, many amps over the last 50 years and feel that for a moderate sound environment, you can not beat this amp. I know others can't wait to switch the speaker, but I am truly satisfied with the whole package and would not change a thing.

          Clean to grit, a singing little combo!

          By Jerrell

          from Mnahattan, KS

          Comments about Fender Super-Champ X2 15W 1x10 Tube Guitar Combo Amp:

          First, let me say that I love this amp! Why, then you might ask, have I given it only 4 stars? Well, I have a couple of minor niggles... I recently decided to 'Joe Bonamassa' my rig - tone stacking with multiple amps - and this was the first I chose (Bonamassa fans are probably wondering why I didn't Marshall up. Well, like Joe, I love great clean tones and I can't afford a Dumble...) Just using the 'Normal' channel, this thing has spank tone for days and days!! With a judicious use of the tone section, you can go from dark jazz to brittle chicken picking in a second. The amp response is also pretty touch-sensitive, so it yields all of that character of a boutique amp. Not only am I happy with this amp, I am seriously considering stacking at least one more into my rig, although I may go head/cab this time for tonal variety. Now, to the niggles... I have used amp modeling tools for years, starting with Line 6. I am sad to say that Fender kind of missed the mark here. The modeling is acceptable but the defaults tones are not at all to my liking in general. The Twin and Deluxe modeling are exceptional, if a bit overdone with virtual effects, and the Tweed tones are good. However, the more modern modeling is not worth the time to tweak them with Fender Fuse. Newsflash, Fender - let the amp stick with what it is really good at! The Super Champ really doesn't need the modeling at all because it is a sonic dream without it. Second niggle - The DSP effects are WAY overdone in default mode. The spring reverb is essentially unusable for my taste past about 2 1/2 on the level. Even the plate reverb is tinny and thin. My opinion is that Fender needs to lose the DSP altogether and stick in an FX loop. NOTE: I have yet to tweak the amp with the FUSE software and so may opinion my shift, but I am generally not a fan of onboard DSP, no matter who makes it. Too much compromise and too little tone payoff for me. I'll stick to my pedal board. Even with the hiccups, I am stone sold on the Super Champ!

          from Portland Oregon

          Comments about Fender Super-Champ X2 15W 1x10 Tube Guitar Combo Amp:

          I really enjoy this little versatile amp. It sounds great with my new Gretsch. You'll have hours of fun producing so many different effects. I chose baby blue because it was $50 less than the black ones.Its probably not large enough to play with a band but again I never really cranked it to the max. It's perfect for the home but irritating enough for the wife!

          Comments about Fender Super-Champ X2 15W 1x10 Tube Guitar Combo Amp:

          I have owned this amp for almost 2 years. I usually use channel 1 with maybe a tube screamer and wah. The warm tube tone is very pleasing! The amp is as loud as you will ever need. The effects are very useful and can be adjusted to your taste. It still looks "as new" and I have never had any issues with it. At this price range you cant go wrong! Buy one (or two) and you will not be disappointed.

          Your entry-level amp to "real" tube tone

          By Jeffrey Homuth

          from Twin Cities, MN

          Comments about Fender Super-Champ X2 15W 1x10 Tube Guitar Combo Amp:

          I have nothing against modeling amps - I owned several Vox Valvetronix amps (which were excellent), and the Super Champ X2 itself has some digital modeling components in the front end. But the Super Champ X2 is superior to the other sub-$500 amps I have tried in that it offers convincing tube responsiveness in a simple, intuitive package with a vintage appearance. Channel 1 is volume only, and offers shimmering clean Blackface tone. Contrary to popular believe, there is digital modeling on this channel as well, only it is locked to the one clean setting. It is very dynamic and takes pedals very well. Channel 2 has 16 different voice settings, ranging from the small Fender Champ, to the Princeton, Deluxe, Bassman, and even non-Fender products like Vox and Marshall. Overall, the Fender models are outstanding. The higher-gain voices are less convincing, but still very useful to have as an option for home practicing. Even if the amp only had 8 "great" voices, it's of no detriment to the user to have 8 additional choices, even if they are less appreciated. The 10" speaker is a stock ceramic and sounds great at bedroom levels. There's discussion of upgrading the speaker, but this is not necessary at bedroom levels. This amp gets just loud enough to do some gigging, but it's better suited for home, hobby, or the studio. I've been playing for years, and I can't tell you how satisfying it is to hear those classic Fender tones finally coming out of my home amplifier.
