This review is more of a comparison between the 20 and the 40 than a review of how the Champions sound. They both sound great.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

I ordered the Fender Champion 20. Being a beginner, I wasn't ready to splurge on a $600 combo tube amp, so I was looking for something simple to amplify my new Epiphone SG. In its price range, the Fender Champion 20 was one of the highest recommended products on Amazon, so I figured I'd give it a shot. Originally, I was deciding between

sad, I got to play this amp 1 time before a whitish/blue flash came out the back while turning it on and then the red led's on the front panel went out and that was it ,you could not turn it on or anything.just dead.

I just purchased this amp a few days ago and it is excellent! It has 30 different presets( +20 more that you can use as replacements) that work for any genre of music. All of the presets can be adjusted manually to your liking and saved. I am a beginner and still learning, but this amp is perfect for this purpose and I highly recommend

As a bit of a background about myself, I have been playing guitar for more than twenty years and have had a chance to try out a great number of solid state, hybrid and tube amps. This unit is the queen of versatility and portability! I enjoy the extremely wide range of options. It doesn't replace the need to buy separate pedals but it

The Mustang LT25 is an excellent little amp. It's a modeling amp, meaning it can emulate a variety of specific amplifiers and effects pedals. It comes with 50 preset sounds spanning the history of country and rock, but all of them can be modified or replaced entirely. I selected this amp primarily because it's small and can model all of

Absolute must if you are using Fender Mustang LT25 amp! Cord is long enough to play guitar while you are standing.Click is solid, no rattling. Very easy to setup 2 presets on amp. I use it for switching between 2 presets which are "Fender Clear" and "Silky Solo", but can change presets in case I want to use different sound. Pedal is

I really like this Fender branded on/off foot switch. The absolute joke of all this, is that I purchased it to control the on/off tremolo feature of my 1967 Blackfaced Fender VibroChamp amplifier. I've owned the amp since I was 9 years old, so it only took me a half-century to get around to this purchase. I've just turned the

This footswitch is well-constructed and looks very durable. It has a respectable amount of weight to it, probably because the whole thing is made of metal with a thick rubber boot to help keep it in place. It looks like it can take some serious abuse. The button itself is high quality and produces very obvious, satisfying click when

Just bought a Hot Rod Deluxe which is notorious for its linear volume knob. I popped this baby in the effects loop and now I can play at reasonable levels while still pushing the preamp tubes.

For years I've been trying to achieve a raw guitar tone something like you'd hear on Blitz "All Out Attack" EP, The Stooges "Raw Power" or AC/DC "Let There Be Rock." By raw I mean not much gain compared to modern high gain bro-metal amps, but still sounds like the tubes are moments away from catching on fire. This

Product is great. It performs several functions for me.1. I can provide a hotter signal to the amp (fx loop) without increasing volume.2. I can use this turn down all channels of my amp to very very quiet levels, yet maintain a lot more gain than if I attempted to try and find that spot between 0.1 and 1.0 where it's not too

3.5 stars is what I would give it, so I rounded up.Cons:- It's long. 10" plus the cords coming out of the top, so you need to have pedal space. My board is pretty tight, so that part sucks. (On the bright side, it's thinner than a Morley). Using right-angled cord plugs seems to be tolerable.- The guts are totally open to the

I've owned two of these and finally recently switched to the BOSS pedal. I don't know why these are so popular.

I have been working as a full-time professional musician in Nashville, TN for several years, and have acquired tons of gear. Recently I've been exploring "desktop" practice amps.

Just Received the Spark amp a couple days ago from amazon. Took it out of the box plugged it in, it blew my other amp out of the water! There are many dials on the amp itself to adjust the gain, bass, delay, reverb, etc. There are also different modes you can set such as glassy, metal, hi-gain, bass, acoustic and some others. But, where

By Luke Butler
Just to clarify, the amp itself has nothing to do with the sounds being generated for backing tracks: your phone or tablet is creating/synthesizing the sounds and Bluetooth-ing them over to a receiver in the amp. So the quality of the Bluetooth (connection, latency, etc.) plays a big part in the jam that you're playing over. I found that

I switched from a Ditto to the RC-1. It has a few subtle advantages that I really appreciated. It's so much easier to know the current status from the Loop indicator. It's large enough and not under my foot like it is with the Ditto. I also got the optional FS-5U to make dead-on loop stops and erasure with no playback. There's nothing

The pedal has great sound quality and lots of features/customizations, which is great. However, when the pedal is not in use, it CANNOT be cleared without a couple seconds of playback first. This is because a double tap while holding the second tap clears the unit, but the first tap begins the playback. This would never fly on stage

If you're trying to decide between this and the TC Electronic Ditto, go with this. It's buffered, which helps your signal on long cable runs (true bypass can be a bad thing), and the display that shows where you are in the loop is VERY helpful. It can also run off of a 9v battery, unlike the Ditto.Here's the default behavior, which was

Ordered this footswitch for my Fender Champion 40 amp, and believe me this is THE model you need for your Champion to function correctly. Other footswitches may or may not work properly with this amp, but this one seems to be made for it. Too bad it wasn't included with the amp, and I think that may be just a price point thing because

I use this foot switch with a Fender Champion 40, and it works perfectly with no lag time.The left switch switches between channel 1 & 2, the the right switch turns the effects off & on.

I am using this with my Fender Champ 50xl amplifier as it allows me to turn on and off the effects with one tap, rather than turning the knob. It looks just like the one I had on an amplifier I purchased in the late 80s and seems very sturdy and should last as long as the amp.It did come with a cable.An observation is that the effects

An often overlooked pedal, especially for playing guitar live, is the ABY pedal. I am impressed with this inexpensive, yet useful device. The build quality is excellent. My guitar sounds clean through it, no change in tone. Also, there is no POP sound when switching, which I have had on other pedals. I highly recommend this little

First of all, the value of this pedal is priceless. In other words, it is truly amazing but will not break the bank. Donner has created a pedal that operates as an ABY box as well as an AB box. Let me explain further.An ABY box allows you to take a signal, such as a guitar in my case, and will let you connect to two amps simultaneously.

By Amazon Customer
The Donner ABY pedal is a passive device that routes your one guitar signal into two amps or two guitars into one amp. This unit can alsao be used on an amp such as a Vox AC15 to access the two seperate inputs and combine them. In describing these possibilities on th accompanying video I mixed up the two into one, but you get the idea.

This is a good multi-purpose amplifier. It has two dual-purpose inputs, (meaning you can plug in either 1/4-inch or 3-pin cables) so you can plug in two mics, two instruments, or one of each, with separate volume and tone controls for each input. Its 40-watt capacity means you can use it as a PA in a small venue, and you can also use it

I have an older style Acoustasonic 30 that is much larger, has "chorus" effect and sounds great with an acoustic. I thought this was an upgrade of the older model, but I feel that this is just a cheap dual clean amp without any special sound for acoustic guitars. It does have a very generic sounding reverb, but no chorus. My guitar also
