MGR/Sean McCrory's review"Fender Champion 110"

Fender Champion 110
I paid £82.00 ($151.57 US) from ebay. It is in perfect condition, as a practice amp.
The amp has 25watts of output power (not 75 as some people have stated in previous reviews.), with 2 channels, clean and gain. It has three equaliser controls, Treble, Mid and Bass.

Sound quality is quite good, but very dependant on your set up and pick-ups.

Im running a Ibanez S470 through it and i have absolutely no complaints.

The main features of the amp I liked were the use of two channels and an external speaker port (8 ohms) as the amp has 75watts of input power which is enough to power a decent cabinet.

Its is really easy to aquire the tone you desire from this amp, from smokey blues to heavy metal with the use of the gain channel.

The clean channel is exactly as described, CLEAN. It is quite distinctive.

The worst thing about this amp is the feedback you can recieve from, ahem, sitting too close to the amplifier. Simple way to cancel this out, stay away a couple of feet and aim the guitar away from the amplifier. After all if you are preforming on stage you are never facing the amplifier.

The build quality of this amplifier is excellent. All knobs are nice and tight and the frame of the amp is solid. Input jacks hold their own against ripping the lead from them. An amp that will last as long as your guitar playing does, and further.

For practice, this amplifier is ideal. With two channels you have a good choice in the sound you want to produce.

however as i said before, the quality of sound is dependant on your set up, but for the price you can buy a second hand one, i honestly believe you can get better.

MGR/Cait's review"Fender Champion 110"

Fender Champion 110
I got this item for Christmas from my brother's friend, therefore I don't know how much I paid for it. I think it might have come in a package.

Hmmmm...I guess it's 75W is nice.

There is such much feedback. You can't play anything with out feedback, which is loud as hell.

Its...black...and...has volume, gain (gain select), treble, mid, bass, and reverb knobs. It also has input for external speakers, foot switch, and head phones.

I wouldn't get this amp. First of all, if you are a begginer it is kind of big the lug around, and for everyone else, the feedback is horrible.

mooseherman's review"Weak imitation of a classic amp"

Fender Champion 110
This is a recreation of a classic Fender Champ amp, but with solid-state technology replacing tubes. In fact, the manual states that it is purposely designed to recreate the classic tube clipping of a Fender tube amp. It has one 10" speaker and delivers 25 watts of power. It has one 1/4" input, as well as a footswitch jack, external speaker output, and headphone output, all three of which are also 1/4". There are two channels, normal and drive, there is a three band EQ and a reverb knob.

UTILIZATION

This amp is easy enough to use as it's pretty simple, however, getting a good sound out of it is tricky considering it's a solid state amp. Neither the clean nor the drive really did a whole lot for me. The manual explains pretty much everything you need to know about the amp, but in all honesty, anybody who isn't using an amp for the first time will have no problems with the actual usage.

SOUNDS

This amp, to put it really bluntly, does not sound that great. I can imagine anybody who owned the original Fender Champ would be a little disappointed, if not genuinely upset, at the attribution of that name to the Fender. Everything that comes through has a really bland, dull tone to it that I can't stand. I play my Strat, which is really bright and somewhat thin in a tube amp, and it sounds really lifeless. A hollow bodied guitar can sound ok for jazz but that's really about it. My Les Paul is just as bad as the strat through this. The drive channel is pretty bad, in fact, I use a slight amount of drive (barely any) and end up using that as my clean channel. In that way it sort of resembles a tube amp, but even then, a bad one.

OVERALL OPINION

This thing is obviously a cheap starter amp, based on the price. I guess it'll work in that context, though most likely a beginner will get frustrated because the amp will sound bad. If you start with a bad amp, you probably won't want to keep playing. It'd be better for you to get something a little nicer. Even if it's another solid state, there must be something better than this.

iamqman's review"EEEHHHH not great, but it'll do"

Fender Champion 110
Solid state amp is what you would expect...not great but OK for home or office practice use. The amp is a cheap solid state amp that will allow a user to play at low volumes or use the headphone jack to play silently without interruption.

The amp is really loud as well. being that it is solid state the amps tend to be able to hit louder volumes naturally. This thing is rated at 75 watts which is a bit much if you ask me. Being i think the tone is terrible as it is and having 75 watts of that is a bit too much to handle.

You have a master volume, a gain and another volume for the gain. Then you have the standard treble, middle, and bass, with an added reverb control knob. You also have a speaker output if you want to run in into another 1x12, 2x12, or 4x12 speaker cabinet.

UTILIZATION

NOMINAL INPUT LEVEL: 100mV POWER OUTPUT: 25 Watts R.M.S. RATED LOAD IMPEDANCE: 8 Ohms POWER REQUIREMENTS: 120V VERSION: 120 VAC 60 Hz., .92A Max. 230V VERSION: 230 VAC 50 Hz., 0.5A Max. SPEAKER COMPLEMENT: One 8 Ohm Special Design 10" Speaker (P/N 036502) DIMENSIONS: Height: 15-1/2" (39.4cm) Width: 17" (43.2cm) Depth: 8-1/2" (21.6cm) WEIGHT: 25 lbs. (11.4kg) ACCESSORIES: Remote Single Footswitch

SOUNDS

You will get a decent tone for a solid state from this amp. If you are used to tube amps then this will not be your cup of tea. You will find yourself getting real irritated at the solid state tone that will eventually lead you to turning the amp off.

Any old guitar will do with this amp. Again tone is not the answer with this amp...practice is the answer. If you have a junk guitar or even a decent Gibson Les Paul or Fender Stratocaster you will find that it doesn't matter too much. The tone is cheap, thin, and metallic. It will not be warm and thick or any other description you would give a sweet thick tube amp distortion.

OVERALL OPINION

Since these amps have been discontinued I have no idea what the going used rate is for these amps. Since it is solid state I can't imagine it being over $250 for a used amp.

I would recommend this amp to a Fender amp lover who needs a cheap practice amp that will get an ok clean tone and lousy distortion tone. You won't break the bank buying one of these amps either. They are cheaply made and cheaply priced.
