I have a few Fender amps and my favorite is a Twin Reverb. I was looking for a smaller amp that can give me punch, have a quality sound, light weight at a reasonable price. I really didn't need an amp that had hundreds of effects just reverb and chorus was enough. I tested the Katana, Orange and a Marshall which were all the same price range at $199.99. The Champ 40 had all I needed. Great sound easy to use and light weight.
