The Fender EC Vibro-Champ 1x8" Guitar Combo Amp delivers the tone of a legend. Order yours today from Sam Ash Direct for fast, free shipping and the guaranteed lowest price.

In the early 1970’s Eric Clapton created some of the most memorable studio tones through low-wattage tube amps like the Fender Champ. Clapton would control his output volume from the guitar while cranking up the Fender Champ; achieving glorious results. Sam Ash is proud to bring you Fender’s first artist signature amplifier line: the EC Series. Built to the exacting specifications of Clapton himself, the EC series amps are handmade in the USA and based on some of Fender’s most legendary amps.

The EC Vibro-Champ is a variation on the tweed Champ Amp, and features a single 8” Weber Signature speaker with an Alnico magnet to capture that vintage tone. Once you find your tone, the EC Vibro-Champ has a switchable power attenuator, which reduces speaker output and can disable one speaker for even lower output. This is perfect for performing in smaller settings or home practicing, where a lower volume is required. You will still be able to find that ‘sweet spot’ when dialing in your tone, without the excessive volume.

Features include a ’50s-era output tube bias tremolo that produces a more pronounced pulse than later Fender tremolo circuits and really captures the vibe of the late 50’s and early sixties. Features include hand-wired all-tube circuitry on eyelet board with premium components; circuit based on late-’50s Fender Champ amp model 5F1 (about 5 watts); tremolo speed control and footswitch jack (footswitch optional); Groove Tubes® 6V6GT output tube, two 12AX7 preamp tubes and 5Y3GT rectifier tube; Schumacher custom transformers; internal speaker disconnect (allows use of external 4-ohm speaker enclosure); finger-joined solid pine enclosure for warm, resonant tone; lacquered tweed covering with vintage-style brown/gold grille cloth and leather strap handle. Deluxe fitted cover included.
