Two channels with selectable amp voicings deliver Fender's signature cleans as well as high-gain overdrive, while built-in effects—including reverb, delay, chorus and tremolo—allow you to craft your unique tone. The Fender Special Design 12" speaker fills any space with your music, loud and clear. Iconic Fender Blackface styling gives the Champion 40 a cool, vintage-inspired look that will inspire your creativity. For practice, performance or studio use, the Fender Champion 40 combo amp provides classic tone and modern features to capture your vision.

Shape Your Sound With Two Channels and Selectable Amp Voicings

The Fender Champion 40 guitar amp offers two channels: normal and drive. The normal channel produces the sparkling Fender clean tone that defined genres. Switch to the drive channel and select from three amp voicings—British, Hot Rod or Metal—to access a range of high-gain tones from classic rock to modern metal. Easily switch between channels with the optional footswitch or via the control panel to change up your sound during live performance.

Built-In Effects Enhance Your Tone

Onboard effects provide extra depth and dimension to craft your signature sound. Add reverb to fill out your tone or delay to create rhythmic repeats. Chorus delivers a shimmering, multi-dimensional effect, while tremolo produces a rhythmic pulsating effect. Adjust the amount of each effect and save your preferred settings to quickly recall your customized tone.

Special Design 12" Speaker Handles Any Volume

The Fender Special Design 12" speaker delivers full, balanced tone at any volume. Rated at 40 watts, the Champion 40 projects well for practice and can hold its own on small stages. For larger venues, use the pre-amp out jack to connect to a PA system. The open-back cabinet design enhances low-end response, giving life to warm, rich cleans and tight, defined overdrive tones.

Iconic Fender Style

The Champion 40 combo amp features Fender's classic Blackface styling with silver grille cloth and angled control panel. Its rugged plywood construction and durable vinyl covering are built to withstand the rigors of frequent use and transport. For a stylish, gig-ready amp with timeless Fender tone, the Champion 40 is an ideal, affordable choice.
