Fender Champ XD Series Reviews
The new Fender Super Champ XD and Fender Vibro Champ XD valve amps have classic looks and vibe, but also on-board DSP effects. Guitarist magazine loved them...maybe you will, too!
The Super Champ XD and Vibro Champ XD take the vintage Champ into a new era with classic styling, simple controls, a good variety of clean and distorted tones and unmistakable tube feel and performance at a remarkable price.
Features include a real tube amp combined with up-to-date extras including versatile amp voicing and superb DSP effects. Its solid-state overdrive and distortion eliminate many of the preamp tube problems that plague tube lovers while providing exemplary tones for rock, blues, country, jazz, metal and more.
Guitarist's verdict was quite positive:
"These amps bridge the gap between a practice and a gigging unit, and if you're in the market for a fistful of all-valve Fender combo yet you find wallet wanting, getting either of these and tracking down a reasonably-sized cabinet is a definite option to consider seriously."
Super Champ XD received 4 1/2 stars, and the smaller Vibro Champ XD got 4.
