Practice amp? Yeah, right...
HeartLander, 18.04.2015
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.

I use the amp at home for practice, I consider myself an intermediate guitar player.
Really love the sound of the clean channel. Has some great effects and some modulated amps. Great amp for a beginner guitar player that wants to spend a little more for valve sound, it really is special compared to fully modulated amp sounds. You can't just beat valves when it comes to sound quality and clarity.

Misses some effects that are better for beginners starting with electric guitar, so they can simulate sounds of known songs. But with some patience and tinkering you can get many different sounds only with the amp. If you pair it with pedals it'll be more versatile.

Happy with the purchase, would recommend it to anyone.

excellent beginner amp
st.lia, 21.06.2017
This is loud enough and good enough for any beginner-mid player. You can definitely cannot tour with this one but you can jam with you band at a basement.
This can be considered as an advantage since you need to volume up your tube amps to get the best out of them.
Personally, I am not interested in the features. I rather get them from pedals. The overdrive is nice though, and if you are missing the pedals you can definitely fool around with some reverb. Sound quality is excellent.

Fantastic practice amp...and much more
Denis1969, 27.09.2015
Sounds fantastic at low volume and responds very nice to picking dynamics. Also loud enough to cope with a polite drummer, especially if he (or she) plays with brushes :)

It is solidly built, I just wish it had normal rubber feet on the bottom of the cabinet instead of tiny metal ones.

Hooked it up to FUSE software, and saw that the mids on channel 1 were at maximum. Lowered them to around 5,5-6, added a touch of reverb on some effects and I'm done with tweaking.

I prefer channel 1 so far, great blackface sound especially after lowering mids. Voices 2, 8, 9 and 16 are very usable, too.
EDIT:
after some experimentation I returned the mids on channel 1 to somewhere between 9 and 10...works great with a archtop, especially ES-175.

A Great Little Amp
Arthur795, 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.

This is a very good sounding amp for home using. Good built in effects and you get the clean fender tone. Good value for the money.

Superb combo amp. Valve tone on channel one is great and modelling tones very good too. Solid build and great value.
