The Vibro Champ of the 1960s and '70s was an upgraded version of the venerable Fender Champ amp. Its no-nonsense styling, small size, low output, and great tube tone (including "Vibrato" effect) has been enjoyed by countless guitarists...beginners and seasoned pros alike. The Vibro Champ XD amplifier takes the vintage formula into a new era by combining a real tube amp with up-to-date "extras" like versatile amp voicing and effects. The inclusion of solid-state overdrive and distortion eliminates many of the preamp tube problems that plague tube lovers, while providing tones for blues, rock, country, jazz, metal, and more. Recording and practice sessions come alive with the Fender Vibro Champ XD.
Vintage Modified Series
The Vintage Modified part of the equation for this amp are the two great modifications done to the vintage Vibro Champ. First it's now a 5-Watt Class "A" Tube guitar amplifier with one 6V6 power tube, one 12AX7 preamp tube, an 8 inch Special Design speaker. Fender makes it so that the preamp tube isn't used to create high gain distortion, this increases tonal versatility while tube reliability is improved. It also makes it perfect for recording and practice. A 16-position "Voicing" knob with a myriad of clean and distorted preamp voices provides the quality and reliability in tone for that great overdriven sound at lower volumes.
The second difference is this:
The original Vibro Champ had only tremolo...this amp has Tremolo, Reverb, Delay, Chorus, Vibratone, and combinations! Which makes it a lot more fun to explore different possibilities of combination effects. The 16-position VOICING knob provides clean, overdrive, and distortion tones for blues, rock, country, jazz, metal, and more.
