    Squier Champ 15Published on 12/11/11 at 22:22
    This is a solid tube amp that was originally designed back in the 1970s. It has two inputs (high gain and low gain) for a single clean channel. There are 50 watts of power. The amp features controls for volume, bass, mids, and treble, tremolo speed and depth, reverb, and master volume.


    UTILIZATION

    This amp is a basic plug and play kind of amp. There really isn't a whole lot of manipulation involved unless you want the tremolo or reverb, and even then the adjustments are minimal. I didn't use a manual and in no way did that hinder my performance with this amp.

    SOUNDS

    The sounds that emerge from this 1970s amp are actually far closer to early 60s sounding Rock and Roll. I immediately thought of the Hollies when I plugged it in with my Strat and Tele. I don't like it very much with a Les Paul, I think single-coils are really the way to go with this one. The tone is super warm normally, and can get a tone of great kick without distorting too much. Distortion is not the name of the game with this amp, at least not the way it comes originally. I've heard that opening it up and fiddling with the circuits, swapping tubes, etc. allows the distortion possibilities to come through, but I haven't had the nerve to try that, especially since I really like the amp the way it is. For anyone who'd never want anything more than natural overdrive, this is a real treat.


    OVERALL OPINION

    I'm beginning to think more and more that there are a lot more good tube amps out there than bad ones. The more I try, the more I like. This one isn't always too expensive used, I don't think they even make them anymore, unfortunately. This is definitely a sleeper hit, worth checking out for blues players.

    The Fender Squire Champ 15G is a cheaper beginner's version of the ever popular Champ amps. This one is actually under the Squire name, which is of course owned by Fender. The big difference between this amp and the real Fender Champs is that this one isn't a tube amp but is solid state. It's still 15 watts of power and has a single speaker, which I think is 8" but I'm not 100% sure on this. It's got a single 1/4" input on the front and also a 1/4" headphone output.

    UTILIZATION

    The make up of the Fender Squire Champ 15G is quite simple to understand and follow. If you've ever used an amplifier before, you'll probably have this one under control. The parameters included on the front panel include knobs for gain one and gain two, volume, and then treble, middle, and bass EQ control. That should be self explanatory for all users, so I don't think a manual is a necessity.

    SOUNDS

    The sound of the Fender Squire Champ 15G is a bit uninspiring, as I honestly would not record with this on the level that I'm at right now. It comes off a bit tinny and isn't very full sounding because of the small single speaker and the fact that it's not a tube amp. This is certainly not a replacement for the true Fender Champ, but will be fine for a beginner looking for a small amp to practice with at home.

    OVERALL OPINION

    While okay for practicing and for beginners, the Fender Squire Champ 15G isn't a serious guitar amplifier. If you were to hoping to save a few dollars with this instead of a silver face Fender Champ, I would highly recommend against it. This amp simply isn't in the same ballpark. It's okay for the price and for practicing, but beyond this I wouldn't use it...

    Simpler you die. An amp that is not the last computer from NASA either!
    Especially on this one.

    SOUNDS

    Turning to the most important part, sound.
    Good clean sound, and 15W for that price it does well. The sound is clean but not the heat or the presence of a higher-end amp.
    With the sound is not distorted, not great. The grain is very very dirty punk rock.
    AC nonetheless remains acceptable.
    For 15W it is maintained but nothing transcendent either! So test it before you buy to see if you need. HIC still big with noise.

    OVERALL OPINION

    Good to share the background noise it makes when it takes him he holds up. But if I had to pick one else has the time or I've purchased (with Guitar Pack Squier), I think I will opt for a Roland Cube 15 or 30 W of which I am told a lot of good.
    So think before, and especially test.

    Dinky little practice amp, nothing more...

    Squier Champ 15Published on 05/20/10 at 14:34
    This is a solid-state practice amp by Squier, a subsidiary of Fender. Whereas Squier guitars are sometimes decent, the amps are usually always pretty bad, except for a beginner. This is a perfect example of such an amp. There are two channels, clean and distorted. There is a gain knob for each channel, as well as a 3-band EQ and volume control that both work for both channels. The amp has minimal wattage, only about 15 watts. There aren't any effects. There is a simple 1/4" input and an external speaker output which is the same size.

    UTILIZATION

    This amp is certainly easy to use, there are only a handful of switches. Getting a good sound out of it would be difficult without a lot of pedals. It's basically a practice amp, and really, only a beginner should even consider it. The lack of range of tone is good for beginners, because it makes everybody sound equally bland, regardless of talent.

    SOUNDS

    This thing is a horrible sounding amp. The clean tone has almost no character unless you crank it to the max, and even then, there's some warmth to it but it still sounds pretty bland. The distortion channel is absolutely terrible. It's incredibly noisy, and there isn't a whole lot of actual guitar that cuts through the distortion, it's thick and gooey and messy. I think that the frequency curve on this thing is pretty crap, there's really only a variation of one sound that comes out of this amp.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I only liked the fact that I bought this thing for a hundred bucks, got my practice use out of it when I was younger, and then sold it to some other dude for just a little bit less. This is beginner territory only. Don't buy it if you've been playing for two years or more, there's better practice amps out there that will make you feel better about your playing.
