The Champ is as iconic as some of Fender’s big brother amps, such as the Twin or Deluxe. It could be argued that these little amps are even moreso recognized, as one of the ultimate ‘practice amps’ of it’s day. Discerning players know, however, that the Champ is far more than just a kickaround garage or bedroom amp; just ask this Vibro Champ.
The Champ is simple enough with one power tube and one preamp tube making 5 watts of gorgeous Fender tone and pushing it out through an 8″ speaker. The Vibro Champ additionally sports a second preamp tube. Volume, Treble and Bass controls grace this silver faceplate, as well as the Speed and Intensity controls for the phenomenal vibrato unit.
The cabinet of this Vibro Champ is the cleanest box we’ve ever seen, as is the chassis and plate. The original Fender Special Design speaker was dry-rotted, so we replaced it with a Weber Alnico BluePup 8″. This cash-clean amplifier also includes the original owner’s manual , schematic, and hang-tags in the original envelope!
