The compromises amp
Draghiem, 09.11.2020
Hey there,

I bough this head to have the well knowed Fender's clean tones and said to myself this model should a good one due to all options it have

And indeed, you have two channels and many amps emulations and many effects for a decent price.

So, with those characteristics, it should be the one.
And if you like compromises, it will be so.

By compromises, I mean:
- Real tubes head ... but not power soak. To have good tone, you need to crack it
- Many amps simulations... except if you like one amp simulation for the clean and an other one for the dirt channel.
- Those amps simulations can't compete with the real Fender amp (like Princeton and so on). Witch is fair cause those amps are way more expensive. Once again, if you're ok to do compromises (cheaper but not as good as the "real" one), you should be fine
- There are many effects avaibles. They sound "ok" at low setting but if you want to get higher, they sound fake to me (e.g the tremolo one)
- So you have many settings EXCEPT one : this amp does only have 2 bands EQ --> No mids setting, only tremble & bass (with are shared on both channel). So if you want to teak the mids, you'll to do some compromises (again) with those 2 EQ

Few words on the matching cab: look reallly nice, quite expensive but mostly: this is a close cab with low depth and you can't change the speaker (at least without blowing the Tolex). If you are ok with that, this amp will the matching cab should please you. Otherwise, i suggest

My 2 cents
-----------------
If you plan to buy this amp and the matching cab, i suggest you take a look at the Fender's Combos (like the blue JR) to be sure to not regret your purchase

CONCLUSION
--------------------

> BUY IT if you want a versatile head amp for a nice price but you will have to deal with all the points i wrote here above

>DO NOT BUY IT if you already have (or plan to buy) decents pedals, or you want a 3 bands EQ or an FX loop

I hope this review will help you to decide if this amp is worth it for you or not

Thanks for reading

Great value Fender tones!
freakinpete, 14.03.2019
I've been using this amp at home and for a couple of small gigs, and it's perfect! It has two channels, a clean channel and a channel with a 'voice' selection, with 16 amplifier models to choose from. I'm mainly just using the clean channel as a pedal platform and it sounds pretty good (supposed to be based on a standard Blackface clean sound), but it's nice to have the option for an additional channel with different settings (all adjustable via the Fender Fuse software - each of the 16 channels can be fully customized with various amp models and effects).
Unlike some other hybrid valve/solid state amps, this one seems to have a digital pre-amp and a valve power section, so it's not exactly 'all tube'.
I'm running this into a Marshall 1x12" cab and it sounds great - plenty of volume to play with a band. The footswitch can switch channels and turn on/off effects, which is useful (but it's not included).
The amp is very well constructed and seems to be rock solid - this is a really great value Fender valve amp. The only thing I miss is an effects loop, which would be nice, especially at this price!

Fender Super Champ X2 HD
DaveI, 31.07.2017
Fantastic practice amp. I needed an amp for home/practice and couldn't be happier with the Fender Super Champ X2 HD.

I was torn between this and the legendary Blues Junior. Decided to go with the super champ X2 because it's much more versatile. The Blues junior is stunning but limited to the classic Fender tube tone. The champ can get very close to the divine tones of the junior and offer much more versatility for practice use. It's also much cheaper.

Running it through a Harley Benton G112 Vintage. This gives plenty of low end and shifts enough air with the Champ that the windows rattle with the volume at 4. Certainly suitable for small gigs.

The only negatives I have found is that there is no line in for aux/cd for jamming/practice. The foot switch is not included which is also disappointing.

This little amp is almost the "perfect" practice amp.

Perfect for gigging guitarists!
Edgar Blackdagger, 29.06.2017
I bought the amp almost a year ago and slowly my pedals started going in the closet.

The volume is more than enough, even on Channel1 and the sound is very clear and pronounced, with dynamics that I've never seen before on a mass-produced amp.

The Fender Fuse software is very easy to use and makes the amp extremely versatile and the Voices 4 and 12 are staggering!

Program your effects, use Voice 4 at full Gain and play with your guitar's Volume knob; this will take you from oldschool jazz to screaming blues solos!

The heaviest sounds are ok for live but after all this is a Blackface Super Champ, not a Soldano...

This is the amp I recommend to my students, fellow bandmates and fellow young producers!
