I bought the Champion 20 at first, which is a great sounding amp that also looks cute. It also has all the sounds I wanted and it can play amazingly loud even though it is small.
Then I realized that it does not have the capability to quickly switch from clean to rock/metal sounds using a foot switch. So I bought a Champion 40 instead and returned the 20 (the foot switch needs to be bought separately though as it does not come with either the 20 or the 40).
Also got a chance to compare both amps side by side. I like the sound of the Champion 40 way better than the 20. It was better rounded, warmer and richer sounding than the 20.
Also, I did not notice any excessive boominess/bass in the 40 that some users complained about.
The "popping" sound when you turn off the amp is very minimal on the 40. However, on the 20 it is noticably louder that you might think something is wrong with it.
If you are torn between the 2 models for a buying decision, hope this post helps.
This amp is exactly what I need as a beginner:
- Headphones and aux connections. Aux is useful if you've got a few drum tracks that you'd like to play alongside your guitar (some books offer downloadable tracks).
- Can digitally simulate ("model") the sound of multiple different amps including classic Fender amps:
01 Tweed Bassman
02 Tweed Deluxe
03 Tweed Champ
04 '65 Twin-Amp
05 '65 Deluxe
06 ‘65 Princeton
07 60s British
08 70s British
09 80s British
11 90s Metal
12 2000 Metal
- Features onboard effects. They're not great, but what do you expect in an amp that costs less than a single decent effects pedal? As a beginner, it's convenient because it gives me a sampling of the cool things you can do with electric guitar effects. Most of the time I leave these off anyway, they're mostly a gimmick. The effects selections are:
01 No effects
02 Reverb + Chorus
03 Reverb Hall
04 Reverb Spring
05 Chorus Fast Sweep
06 Chorus Deep Sweep
08 Delay Slapback
09 Delay Long
10 Delay + Reverb
11 Touch Wah
- very affordable for a practice 20W amp
- very simple controls
- sounds fine
- only 1 channel; can't quickly switch from clean to tweed + spring reverb effect with a single click. I believe the larger Champion amps have a channel switch.
- the voice and effects knobs are continuous, like analog knobs, but operate digitally. This means that they only switch between a preset number of selections. For example, to select my favorite voice - #6 "'65 Princeton" - I have to turn the voice knob to "Blackface" until the tri-color LED turns yellow. This is the least intuitive way to select a sound. A 12-click knob would have been better. It's possible this was simply done to save money, but it's very confusing.
- Major annoyance: when powering off, the amp let's out a HUGE pop. Every time. It's not too disruptive, but if your objective is to be quiet at night in your bedroom, and you decide it's time to turn it off, you hear a loud pop! This could be a deal-breaker for those who are using this as a practice amp in their bedrooms at night. Other reviewers have mentioned this as well.
Conclusion: I gave this 4 stars because it's not the greatest amp in the world, however, if you're new to electric guitar and want to just get a sampling of voices and effects for a very low price, this is the way to go. Once you become an intermediate player, you can upgrade to a tube amp. A quick search on youtube will help you compare tubes to cheap solid state amps. Again, beware of the pop noise when turning off. Otherwise, highly recommend!
Update after a year:
Downgraded my rating to 3 stars. I liked the amp, but it was just so fiddly to get the sound or effects that I wanted. The amp voices just seemed to be the same as increasing the gain, and the metal sounds were mostly unbearable. Jumping from clean to crunch back to clean takes some effort. Instead I recommend a look at the Boss Katana series of amps. For a bit more money, they're much easier to use for a beginner, plus they sound better.
that being said I liked the guitar clean tones very much.but if it cant be more reliable,then its junk.
luckily, amazon stepped in and took care of things order wise!!
but makes me question the reliabillity of new fender amps. I also went to retail local store to try a fender hot rod deluxe and it had just come in and similar thing happened. it just died,never got a note in.salesman said "must be a bad tube..." gulp.
I wonder if others had reliabillity problems with this amp?
update: by the way, fender change its warranty on this amp.you no longer get a 5 year limited warranty you get a 2 year warranty. that pretty much says it all. I wont buy a new fender until they get their act together quality wise. wow!!
1. This is a solid state amp for jam sessions or practicing at home.
2. There is not a ton of features, but definitely enough to get close to what you're trying to accomplish
Taking that into consideration, it nails what it's supposed to do.
1. Not a lot of gadgetry, just some basic effects, along with gain, volume, bass, treble
2. No fancy touch screens or any way to connect it to a computer via USB, so all it's features are on simple knobs. Plug and Play.
3. Will make your ears bleed in a small room if you give it the opportunity.
I have only two complaints, and they're minor so I'm taking off one star.
1. The"Voice" knob has 12 settings. The knob doesn't "click" to each setting, but freely rotates through them (like a volume knob, instead of an old
TV knob). I'm not sure it's supposed to work like that, but it does.
2. There is a loud, unpleasant electronic pop sound when you power off the unit. I've heard this complaint from other users.
As long as you're not expecting to rock the block with this amp you won't be disappointed. The sound is pretty good, it's got the looks, and it doesn't break the bank. Unless you're some kind of tone snob, you'll definitely find it quite usable and completely worth the $100 price.
