Fender Vibro Champ EC Eric Clapton
Here's a revamp of one of our all-time favorites: the Fender Custom Shop Vibro Champ EC. Essentially a 5F1 Champ with an added tremolo circuit and a low output switch. Perfect for the studio or small apartments, killer tone in a small package.
Here's a revamp of one of our all-time favorites: the Fender Custom Shop Vibro Champ EC. Essentially a 5F1 with an added tremolo circuit and a low output switch. Perfect for the studio or small apartments, killer tone in a small package.
It includes two inputs (low impedance -ideally for humbuckers-, and high impedance -usually for single coils-). This single-ended wonder adds an extra stage (driven by an additional 12AX7) for the tremolo, which you can switch on if you like, or switch off if you prefer the vintage "raw" feel of the originals.
The low-output switch is great for those times when you need to plug your guitar but don't want to shake your neighbours' walls. Keep in mind that this is a small beast, but a beast nonetheless, and 5W powered by a lovely 6V6 are LOUD.
Amp looks new, I don't think it was ever played more than a couple hours. Shame. But you can change that.
Includes original cover.
