1955 Fender Champ-Amp, tweed finish. Good condition. Made in Fullerton, California, tube chart stamped EI (September 1955) serial #C00169, Very compact vintage tube amp, only 30cm high, 30cm wide and 17cm deep. This is a very fine example of a mid ''50s Champ. The original 6" Speaker sounds fantastic at low volume tight and punchy while having a super warm, smooth overdrive, not great on the low end though and as a consequence many people like to put in replacement Weber speakers or similar as the old original speakers don't always handle the low end very well. I have left this for the buyer to decide.

These amps Perfect for the studio or any other low volume situation for getting classic tube overdrive tones, they have a snarled sound and break up perfectly, not particularly loud but plenty of bite. This amp runs at 110V and is supplied with a step down transformer. Its in full working order without issue having been fully serviced by our amp tech. During the service, the so called death cap was removed and a 3 prong power chord was added.My tech also noted that all else is original and very clean.
