PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Original US-made ‘Tweed’ Fender Champ valve (tube) amp dating from August 1957 in very clean cosmetic condition and superb working order. This is the year the reissues are based on.
 
This is very clean indeed and looks like it’s spent most of its life in a cupboard.
It’s been serviced, had the ‘death cap’ removed and been fitted with an earthed mains cable so is ready to safely rock your world.
 
One of the great recording amps of all time: it sounds fantastic and has tone for days: a great ‘crunch’ amp.
It is in very good original condition apart from the 3-core power cord, the death cap and various out-of-spec minor components removed in the past – the original speaker was missing and has been upgraded to a Weber Alnico Sig 8S which is sonically a great improvement. It really sings through this speaker: we find the tone is much-improved with more volume, definition and bottom end.
Whilst collectors may like to see original speakers, fitting a more efficient modern speaker maximises these amps’ potential tone-wise.
 
 
It is of course a USA 110v mains unit so will require a step-down transformer for UK/EU use.
