Key Features:

  • Reissue of a Legendary Combo: The 1950s Fender Champ tube amps have achieved legendary status due to their remarkable recording and overdriven sound capabilities. This '57 Custom Champ carries on that tradition with its warm low end and clear top-end, delivering fat, thick overdrive reminiscent of vintage tones.

  • Authentic Fender Tweed Tone: At lower volumes, the '57 Custom Champ produces clean, clear tones. However, when you turn up the volume beyond noon, you unlock iconic sustain and a unique tone that sets this amp apart. Its handwired construction ensures that it responds to your playing style and guitar's nuances with ease.

  • Vintage Aesthetics: The amp's 1950s-inspired appearance is a big part of its charm. It features lacquered tweed covering in striking golden hues, making it a stylish addition to any stage, studio, or home setup. The oxblood grille cloth and genuine leather handle complete the vintage look.
