New Fender Champion guitar amps
The Fender Champion Series now includes three new 20, 40 and 100W guitar combos.
The three new Champion combos provide various British classic and modern sounds and a selection of effects, including a delay and a tremolo which time for the first, and speed for the second, can be synced using the TAP button.
A 1/8" auxiliary input is included if you want to jam along a CD or digital player and a 1/8" headphone output allows you to practice silently at night.
The aesthetics of the amps are inspired by the Blackface models, with a black "Bronco" vinyl cover and a silver grille cloth.
