1957 Fender Champ Amp Tweed 5F1 – Narrow Panel
We present an original 1957 Fender Champ tweed 5F1- Narrow Panel. Made in Fullerton, California.
This vintage Champ features its original lacquered tweed and hallowed 5F1 circuit. It doesn’t get much more pure than the Champ, and this studio favorite delivers freakishly dynamic and glassy pure tube tone that can go from clean to fully saturated overdrive with a twist of the single knob. Newer leather handle and tubes.
The 1957 Champ has been well cared for over the decades and is stocked with the original 6″ speaker that sounds great. The circuit itself is the original Astron capacitors and resistors. Both transformers are original as well.
Cosmetically, the original lacquered tweed is in very clean shape. Overall, the tweed looks particularly great with original nailed in feet.
It even comes complete with its original cover which is rare.
To keep it as original as possible you need a stepdown transformer. We have these in stock and can be purchased through Guitar Hunter. https://guitarhunter.dk/product/toroidy-ats300va-stepdown-converter-230-110v/
