Very usable tuber. Just a couple pet peeves, one sound, one build, neither one makes me regret purchase. I have an 80's vintage Super Champ and if you are wondering, this is a different animal. The tube tones deliver a sweet ride, the thing is easy to carry around and the amp models have more settings out of the box than I need. I like it a lot but ain't in love with it...yet. I gig with this paired with the 80's Super Champ and I use the champ, bassman, and deluxe voice settings. I have a multi-effect amp modeling pedal that had me very skeptical of modeling and maybe it's the hybrid thing but the models in the X2 sound very natural to me. This amp with a full range cabinet has more low end than the 80's model, rounds out the mids and highs of the 80's amp and the two 15 watt amps come across like a much bigger amp. For me this is enough for most clubs, just one wasn't doing it without mic-ing. One reason I didn't give this 5 stars is the clean channel doesn't use the master volume. The 80's amp master volume rules all settings - clean, mid-boost and lead. I like that, a lot. I use the 80's clean channel with the gain up around 8 a lot and use the master to bring volume up and down. It gives soft, tuby distortion when you hit the strings and warm, clean sounds when you don't. Leaving settings the same but pulling mid-boost gives me a nice Stones-ish distortion and the lead channel puts it up over the top. Can't do that with the X2, at least not the way it's delivered. The clean channel on the X2 breaks up nice when cranked, but only when you're using most of the 15 watts - great for a club but for me means practice settings and club settings are different. Maybe there's a way to set that with the programmable feature. Observations on the amp build - the box, handle and exterior feel solid but the knobs feel cheap and plasticky to me. When I touch the the knobs I feel like it's a toy and have to remind myself I'm getting the tube sound, portability, etc I want.

It's a fun little amplifier head that looks cute and has some nice sounds. The modeling channel is pretty tweakable and when you dive into the FUSE software it opens things up a bit more for sure. Both channels do have that digital thing going on for sure. Fender. Why don't you just make this as a single channel all tube 15w with a small reverb tank? You would sell more than you could make. Effects are marginal and if you think you are going to use this in a band and get a loud enough signal from the clean channel and then switch to the drive channel and have it be balanced. Think again. You can get it somewhat close using the software, but you will still be adjusting your guitar volume. Fun to fart around with, but tricks are for kids. You are getting what you paid for with this amp.

      Not a toy ~ The Real Deal

      Comments about Fender Super-Champ X2 HD 15W Tube Guitar Amp Head:

      There is a reason it says right on the amp ~"Vintage Modified Tube Amplifier"....Because that is what it is...The real Deal! I set up an X2, Twin Reverb RI, and a Deluxe Reverb RI, together at Guitar Center and played all three over and over...The Super Champ sounds just as good as both...if not better! Not as loud, but loud enough for events, and who doesn't mic their amp these days? The only thing I wish it had....is a blue jewel!

      Comments about Fender Super-Champ X2 HD 15W Tube Guitar Amp Head:

      Here's what I did..... I took the Superchamp X2 (Combo 10 inch speaker) into the sound room with the big boys ~Fender Deluxe Reverb and Fender Twin Reverb~ and listened to them side by side. I thought, "If this amp can sound just as good as those with a ten inch speaker, I wonder what the twelve would sound like?" So I ordered the Super Champ X2 head with the matching SC112 cabinet and feel very satisfied with the awesome sounds I can get. I feel the more I play it the harder it is to stop playing....This amp set up is alive....Wish I could figure out how to put a blue jewel light on it :) It has personality.......

      Great sound in a small package

      By Tim Claus

      from Williamsburg, VA

      Comments about Fender Super-Champ X2 HD 15W Tube Guitar Amp Head:

      I play with worship band at church, so having a versatile amp is essential, We do a broad range of music and I pair the Super Champ head with a Gretsch 12 string, Fender Jag, Fender Tele, and a hot-rodded Epi Les Paul. This amp handles everything well, giving exceptional cleans and articulation with the Gretsch, mild and warm gain with the Jag/P90 combination and some thick rhythm sounds with the Les Paul. In a relatively small venue, the 15W rating allows pushing the volume and gain to levels where you can dial in the sound in a way you can't with higher output amps. Plus, it takes my collection of TC Electronics, VFE, DigiTech, Visual Sounds and MXR pedals with excellent results. After using other Fender, Carvin, Kustom, Sunn, Line 6, Acoustic and other amps, this one hits every sound I need, with a single amp and setup.

      Terrific studio/recording amp

      By Donald Arney

      from Terre Haute, IN

      Comments about Fender Super-Champ X2 HD 15W Tube Guitar Amp Head:

      I had one of the original Super Champ XD combo amp and really liked it except for the wimpy 10" speaker that came with it and the fact you couldn't change the timing on any of the effects presets. I traded it for Super Champ X2 HD head only and Fender addressed the timing issue with the addition of the Tap Tempo. I solved the speaker issue by using an Egnater Rebel 1X12 cabinet and a modfied Peavey cabinet with 2 Jensen C10Rs. I've only had this particular head for a couple of weeks, but from what I've seen, It's going to be a work horse. The clean tones from this amp are really very, very good and the modeled amps are very usable. Great for jazz, blues, rock.. extremely versatile. The effects aren't the best in the world by any stretch of the imagination, but they're not horrible either. I use a combination of pedals and Pro Tools plug-ins in the studio and can get pretty much whatever tone I need. For gigging, the head with a decent cabinet would be perfect for small lounges or a DI feed to the P.A. The only drawback is that switching from one amp model to another is completely manual (the footswitch only selects clean/modeled and efx on/off). The Fuse software is really impressive, although I've not had time to really get into it very deeply yet. From what I've played around with, it great enhances the flexibility of the amp and is reasonably easy to use. As a studio/recording amp, it is ideal and I highly recommend it.
