Fender_Custom_57Fender’s ’57 Champ reissue is a simple tube amplifier intended for use as a practice amp or for studio use. This tiny tweed rig has 5 watts of output and boasts an 8” Weber speaker. Turned all the way up, the champ has a distorted sound worthy of recording in certain situations. Turned about half way up it has a cleaner, yet not boringly clean tone. With only one knob it is hard to make this amp sound bad. As a “practice” amp this is a great sound. The thing is: it’s way too nice to be just a practice amp. And too expensive.
