Fender Super Champ X2 Review

The War of the Worlds In the world of guitar amps, war is raging. The transistor forces from the digital world are fighting the tubes army. Turning itself into a peace dove, Fender tries to put an end to this war by introducing a hybrid concept: the Super Champ X2. This new amp made in Mexico combines digital technology with tubes has finally seen the light of day. It's on neutral ground so I can start examining the beast. Hopefully this leads to a peaceful co-existence. Read more…

çacroustille's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Very good value for money"

Fender Super Champ X2
Hybrid amplification and modeling lamp.
Full connectivity, possibility of release in Homs to 8 HP more substantial.
Power 15 watts lamp, sufficient for group play but with a box equipped with a 12 inch HP.

UTILIZATION

Use could not be more simple.

SOUNDS

Excellent small typical Fender clean sound a little digging with bass, a real treat with single coil (strat, tele ....)
The modeling part is of course less accurate and less hot than the channel lamp but I'm still surprised by the quality of some models, including twin and 60 British realistic enough.

OVERALL OPINION

Before concluding, two important things, this amp should be placed on the floor for two reasons, 1 you will roundness low and then you avoid making vibrate on which it is placed!
Second point, I bought this amp to play at home at a reasonable volume, I have a Fender Blues Deluxe (40W lamps) to play with my band, all with a battery of pedals to sculpt the sound for my taste .
So in conclusion, this amp is very good value for money if only one is used in the use for which it was designed, namely home, club ... so no real need for power.
For group play with a drummer you have two options, buy a box with an HP 12 inch and connect the speaker output of the super field, I tested and the result is quite convincing or buy a more powerful amp, but in any case forget modeling group because you have a puree effect if you push the volume, better invest in a good analog pedal quickly.

psycholoulou's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" A great compromise"

Fender Super Champ X2
This is an amp lamps mi, mi transistor.
It is equipped with three lamps (1 of 12 and 2 of 6), fully utilized in Channel 1 (aka the clean channel). This is a great channel when you love the clean sound, a very typical Fender sound. Really nice bluesy sound. But be careful, whatever you do (without pedals), even if you turn this knob to 10, it does NOT crunch. Sound hums a little but you can not call it crunch. This is a pretty powerful channel
Channel 2 also uses his lamps, but mixed with the transistor aspect, where you can adjust the gain for example. We found a presetting knob 17 (or 18 I can not remember) types of sound with gain. It may be noted that some are typed bassman, others a little more princeton. In short, it is meant to be tested and versatility. The first two knobs are for me, what is closest to the clean sound of Channel 1 of the superfield (yeah still is the goal). We found a little the appearance of lamps at low volume, mixed with transistor when you put the gain knob at noon.
It's fun, it's a good compromise when you are at home.

It can also also set its own sound when connecting the unit to the computer (USB cable is supplied with) through the Fuze software.
There's of course a knob Treble, Bass (the amp is already full bass), and a full effects: This is frankly one of the strengths of this amp include reverb, the delay (adjustable via a little white button on the side of the knob to the right), tremolo, chorus, etc.. including a rule their power via the knob next door: F / X adjusted. So frankly, if we do not want to take the lead with pedals, this amp is really cool.

UTILIZATION

Frankly, Fender is hard not to understand an amp or so should do it on purpose.
On that one, each knob to its configuration.
The sound is really good in channel 1 and channel 2 is a very good compromise because you can play heavy distortion at low volume with the spirit lamp. There are less powerful than channel 1 but still gives a good sound.

SOUNDS

I play this amp with a Fender Tele U.S. Standard 93.
As I said, this is an amp that I find, is already full of bass. So when I plug my Gibson Lespaul, I hurry to the Bass knob to 1 because I'm too afraid to fart HP. Gibson knob + 6 (for example) = too much bass. It can be disabling on a Gibson but it is always something that can be level.
With the Fender is really not bad at all, there is the sound of the brand with good bass.
I use a lot of reverb (sometimes mixed with time: there is a reverb effect + time) and frankly, others do not tempt me too. After it is a matter of taste.

OVERALL OPINION

I use it for almost 6 months and I am quite satisfied. However, I still looking for something more "lights" that crunch. Finally I'm led to only use the clean channel 1 because I'm not a fan as it sound transistor. So basically a good third of the amp does good to me. It's like 17 (or 18!) Preselected channel 2 sounds, since I've run in, I do not use one. It's impossible to use them all.
So finally, I mainly use the clean channel 1 + reverb ... Of course the Treble and Bass are essential.

What I like about him is his really nice little Fender sound in channel 1. What I like least is the versatility too (which defends some like), and it is not something I was looking into buying an amp.
It is still an amp worth its price / quality ratio. I bought € 400 on Thomann, this is a good price. We pay a can that it is a limited edition (which I believe also, do Supercontrol X2 differs from normal color unlike the Blues Junior III) but it is a good price.

With experience, I do not know if I would do this choice. This is not the amp itself that I do not like, far from it. I however realized that I'm facing all lamps. This is my first amp with lamps, and so I decided to take it, maybe it was not to get back to his transistor. This is why I play channel Clean the entire time.

Those seeking a tube amp with a bit more settings and versatility, go for it! Frankly, I think it is the best compromise of the amp home.

Fender Super Champ X2
Note 6

UTILIZATION

Note 6

SOUNDS

Very good with a Celestion or Jensen. Note 8

OVERALL OPINION

Almost everything has been said! So I short. XD I had last year, lent by a friend who just told me back! It was equipped with an HP celestion green back (good improvement in the mids and bass, it goes into the mix, as the Original HP is a little ledge!) I just bought the X2 secondhand ( equipped with an HP Jensen as my Princeton 65, then there's the fact I tried to change the tubes but it does nothing to improve my ear. I used Repette or small gigs in small bars (repeated line or microphone), when I did not need watts or there is no drummer (you know, the ones that hit like deaf on crates, ah ah ah! ) the sound is okay to do so. however we can not compare a porsche and dacia. I can just make a comparison between the two models, the sounds are slightly improved on the x2, usb jack, yeah, right! As against the price without accessories:! pedal cover and especially the finish was the highest form XD, sticking vinyl on the body, super rubber feet to avoid scratching the floor (yes, really!) replaced by feraille nipples and Fender logo really ship! This is still not a good little heavy amp, if you have back pain, especially if you know how to play and use it in its first use, that I hope be concise and objective. Good gig! note 7

jcm050's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Good but ..."

Fender Super Champ X2
Characteristics are given in another opinion, so I will not repeat ...

UTILIZATION

Operation is simple we can ...
The manual has remained packed ;)
The sound is easy to find but it is not in the high end, that's for sure!

SOUNDS

I had this amp ready for a concert Saturday night. I chose (the guy, very nice in the store told me verbatim "take what you need", if this is not cool, that!) For its small size because the scene was inaccessible by car .
He is not heavy, and I could put in a footswitch (Laney, but compatible) and a distortion pedal / overdrive, plus supplies and cables.
In sound, this amp does not like large distortion! Not much of a problem in this case since it was not necessary, but annoying when you want to make the music a little harder ...
Clear his side, things are going well. The sound is acceptable to. If I had a little more room, I would have shipped a chorus or flanger but hey, we traveled light!

OVERALL OPINION

I used the time for a concert. The practical aspect is to connect it directly to a mixer without a microphone in front of the amp.
I usually play on a Marshall Vintage Modern and clearly, the difference is size (thank goodness ...).
I was told before the show that I'll buy maybe, but not finally, I reported to the store.
I find it expensive (389 euros) issue price / quality. This is not a yucky amp, but I think there are way to have a more versatile amp with a good sound clear and distortion, through a transistor amp for example! For me, there is no point to have in this case a tube amp (if it is only to say that we have a tube amp ...).
Too expensive to start, not good enough for experienced guitarists: so good for whom?
They say you can change the sound of the Fender program, but that I have not tested ...
