I have used a Tech 21 Trademark 10 for many years as an analog recording amp with good results as it had an XLR jack in its back panel so easy to record. Still, I wanted the body and detail a real tube amp has for guitar and this Super Champ X2 really delivers on that. To use this amp as a "recording preamp" I found out (from Fender) that you need to have an 8 ohm load on the speaker out jack or risk blowing it up as is true for most tube amps. So I made one. I got an 8 ohm resistor from Parts Express, wired that to a 1/4" jack and done for very little cost.

Still, I find that while the range of recorded tones coming out of the Line Out jack is just great, the recorded tone does not have the bark and presence that running it through a great speaker does. If you can record the output of a great speaker, please do so. I do like having the 16 different amp emulation choices and really like some of the effects that I dont have like "Vibratone" and "Tremolo".

In all, a very musical and creative recording tool in my studio.

I had to return this amp. 'cause of the lack of an FX. Loop. I'm a jazz/fusion player so I liked the clean ch. and the distortion channel -BUT- not being able to use the FX. loop to connect to my volume pedal it become immediately a big issue. Having a volume pedal it's a major part of my sound, I've being using it for years, putting the pedal up front in the chain isn't the same thing, it becomes an expression pedal, for that I rather use the volume knob on my guitar. I should have thought this more in details. Also the voicing knob isn't gig friendly, imagine the situation, it's dark, you're playing....you're not gonna be there counting "How many notches clockwise is my fab. distortion ?" Sure you can take a note but, if you have been there you know that isn't the most practical thing to do. Too bad though, the amp sounds great, It wouldn't have cost much to Fender to add an F.X. loop. This amp is good for studio work or if you're used to an expression pedal instead of Master volume.

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

    Sounds wonderful. I paired it with a 12" EVH Celestion 20 watt speaker in a home built cabinet. I can't explain how good it sounds with my Tube Screamer and also my Blues Driver. I thought it had to be a joke at first but it's definitely a true fender. Good thing i have no need for the effects because the writing is to small to read lol.

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

        Nice little tube amp! I have several small amps.[10 in all] I have the matching Fender 12" speaker cab, [It's rated at 80 watts, so it can be used with a BIGGER amp too!] One Pre-amp tube and a pair of 6V6's Nice fender sound! Get the Foot switch, to toggle between ch1 and ch2. Other button turns on/off-effects! I called Fender, and they said (2) 8 ohm loads "could" be used, and it "shouldn't" run HOT with the resulting 4 ohm load. Ya need spkrs. with in/out jacks, or a junction box, to do that! I ran it for quite a while with 2 Kustom 10" w/horn P/A Boxes. did fine at 4 ohms. However I wasn't Blasting! Nice little home or studio rig! Big enough for any Small/Med. venue if you use the line out to the P/A. I played Pro, for 45 yrs.- so Trust me! Back then I used a Peavey Black Widow Artist, Solid State Pre, 4X 6L6 Output stage. 12"BW Spkr. Weighs a ton! Still got it! I even ran that to the Mixer, to Spread Out the Guitar. No need for that kind of Power anymore. Didn't really need it then! This little Fender ROCKS!

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

        I'm using this little tube amp, in my home studio! It sounds Great. BTW, I've owned a couple vintage Super Reverbs, a Blond Bandmaster, a Quad Reverb- [a Twin, w/ 4x!2s[. I have an ancient 60's Epi Pathfinder RVT [reverb trem,amp],With 2 6V6s and the usual compliment of 12AX7s -12AT7s etc. Typical '60s type tube amp! The Fender is Louder, BUT, They Always were Louder than Gibson/Epiphone amps, of the same rated power!! The Champ is nice and warm, I just got the matching 12" speaker cab, I really love the little' Piggy-Back' Champ! reminds me of better days gone by! I wish that they/d have put the steel corners on the Champ, But-- Can't have everything! I'll add the corners!

          I use this amp in my studio where it will stay. I was amazed at the punch and warmth it has. I can't say enough about this amp except you can't go wrong with this one. Like the Fender Fuse software which I find useful. The F/X and Modeling is nice too! I bought another amp from MF to use for jamming with friends. I thank everyone for their reviews , very helpful for making a purchase.

          I really enjoy this amp tubes and modeling are a very cool thing. One thing that did bother me alittle is when cfine tuning with fender fuse you have about 1/3 of the functions fuse will run for the mustangs. Don't get me wrong I love the amp I have gotten excellent tone out of it but just wish I could have stored some more of the effects into the amp apposed to carrying a pedal board
