"Champ of an amp at this pricepoint."
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
Purchased this amp after looking at over a dozen different models all around the same price point. All of them, {Peaveys, Marshals, Fenders, Oranges and more}, had some of the features I was interested in but none had them all. In the end I went with the Champ 40. I play mostly blues and classic rock. This amp has great clean tones and after working my way through the amp sampling selections I was able to find a couple that work well for harder rock sounds. It is kind of a mixed bag with the amp modeling. If you are really looking for tube sound or the extra hard edge I always associate with Randall solid states this isn't going to do it for you. However if you have to stick to budget and want to cover a lot of ground with small bucks this thing is a beauty. On the effects end it is about the same as the amp sampling. True to form the best of the tones are from the Fender reverb selections. The spring reverb sound is quite good. From the others only the "touch wah" and the chorus really stand out. For the rest I will still be using pedals even just to practice. The build quality is Fender solid. Ease of use is great. One of the best things is the weight. No back pain moving it around. Overall for the money a nice solid amp with some fun extras.
