Fender Super Champ X2 Info

Speaker: 1×10″
Amplifier Type: Tube. 2x6V6 and 1x12AX7

Even though it is only 15 watts, this amp can get loud. It also sounds good at all volumes. It’s an advanced practice amp that gets very loud and could even have enough power for small shows.

The Fender Super Champ X2 is definitely on the powerful end of the lower watt combo amps on the market, and it’s also suitable for noise restricted practice sessions too.

There are so many controls on this amp that there’s no way you can’t get the sound you want.
