Overview

The Fender Super-Champ X2 HD is a true champion when it comes to versatility and quality, combining old school tube technology with modern amp voicing and digital effects, all in a compact and portable 15W amplifier head.

With a single 12AX7 preamp tube and two 6V6 power amp tubes, you can't lump this amp with conventional amp modelers, but you also can't group it with traditional tube amps because it does let you choose from 16 amp voicings that cover everything from clean Tweed tones to high-gain metal.

In addition, the amp comes with 15 effects that include variations of reverb, tremolo, modulation and delay.

With its low watt rating, the Super-Champ X2 HD is ideal for practice and recording, while being loud and portable enough for small venue gigs.

All these features are made available in a compact and more importantly - affordable package.

The Fender Super Champ X2 HD has the widest palette of sounds in this category. If you're looking for the best of tube warmth paired with several great sounding amp models, look no further.
