See. Hear. Experience.

Player's Perspective

Hand made in Corona, California, this EC Champ from Fender is the ultimate low-wattage, huge tone amp. Eric Clapton has used amps like this on several recordings, and it's easy to hear why. At 5 watts, it's easy to push this thing into that sweet spot at which the tubes really start working hard and the tone starts to break up. It's a thick, lively tone that responds incredibly well to playing dynamics. Lean into it for more grit; back off for a cleaner sound. The tremolo on this amp feels organic and natural, and the single 8" speaker translates everything with clarity. If you're looking for a low-wattage amp to push into tonal perfection or just to practice and rehearse with, this is the design for you.
