Description: Here’s a fairly clean and very healthy, vintage Fender Vibro Champ with the rare “drip edge” cosmetics. It has excellent tone with lots of note clarity and very good output that stays clean when you want it but can easily be coerced into really gnarly and harmonic-rich overdrive. Champs are invaluable for their light weight and mid-range-y, yet full tone that cuts right through a mix as well as their ability to sound huge when properly mic’d up. This particular Champ is the Vibro Champ model and is graced with Fender’s tube-driven Vibrato (actually Tremolo) that sounds glorious and just cannot be replicated in a pedal. Keep your neighbors happy while achieving legitimately great vintage, Fender tube tone. Your studio needs a Vibro Champ!
