Keep calling this amp a practice amp, then take it to a small/medium stage and blow yourself away. The Super Champ might be small, but its sound is huge, vintage and definitely louder than any solid-state amplifier in its class. My glass door tends to dance like Shakira when the volume knob goes beyond the setting "4". It's also a good thing that the back of the amp is half-open, creating a more space-filling sound instead of just front-directing it. A big plus: the speaker is connected to the head through a jack on the back, so you can hook it up to a larger speaker set if you wish.
I have used the amp with an acoustic-electric guitar as well and the results are not bad at all actually, rather clean and warm. If you want to record yourself, keep in mind that the Super Champ loves to have a microphone in front of it. Go for a Shure SM57 and your job's done.
It carries a lot of sound variations, plus the (not-included) footswitch is a must-have for switching fast between its channels. Do not get fooled by the digital effects or its usb connectivity. It's a guitar amp, not a Playstation. If you want to explore different sounds and you use several guitars, go for separate effect pedals.
The overall build quality is solid, the mesh soft material in front of the speaker could be better though. The switches turn smoothly and the amp overall is not that heavy. The use of a standard power cord, similar to those of modern TV's and desktop computers allow you to carry a spare at small cost when taking the amp on the road.

A Great Little Amp
Arthur795 on 28.12.2014
This amp is loud enough for home use & small gigs. The range of voices is useful, giving sufficient variation without any silly extremes. The onboard FX are good and the ability to tailor the sounds using the Fender Fuse programme on the computer makes this a very versatile piece of kit.
