1970s Silverface Fender Champ


This one is from the early 70s. 6 watts of power, one channel. The circuit (AA764) was unmodified for around 18 years starting in 1964, so you don't need to spend extra money on one from the blackface era to get a great sounding amp. I've heard that the cabinets were made from cheaper materials after the mid 70s, but I'm not sure how much that affected the sound.
