We present an original 1965 Fender Vibro Champ amplifier blackface in exceptional condition. Made in Fullerton, california.
This Fender amplifier is an early example. It delivers five watts of pure blackface Class A tube tone. A surprisingly loud amp with its original alnico 8″ speaker.
Fender Vibro Champ blackface has just the right amount of glassy, sparkling clean tone before pushing into smooth overdrive, and of course, Fender’s lush sounding tremolo circuit has a strong pulse and wide range of speeds. The circuit original, with stock Schumacher transformers. The preamp is virtually untouched, with just new capacitors and resistorsThe tube chart is very clean and fully intact.
The original speaker Oxford 8″ is clean as it Can be. The frame shows virtually no wear. This Vibro Champ is an ideal example of Blackface tone that is sure to delight both discerning collectors and serious players.
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/
