If you're looking for a low-powered, hand-wired, vintage-inspired amp with massive Tweed tone, the '57 Custom Champ is sure to satisfy. Serving up 5-watts of pure tube power, the  Fender '57 Custom Champ comes equipped with vintage-style capacitors and a vintage-era-designed single 8" Weber Special Design alnico speaker to produce that legendary Fender sound that can be heard on countless recordings.

Great for home practicing



Recording Magic


At 5 watts it's perfect for recording. The tone is excellent and it's very responsive to pick attack. Catch a cleaner track then a dirtier track and blend away in the mix.
