Fender EC Vibro Champ Eric Clapton Signature Tweed 1x8" Tube Amp, Near-Mint w/ Cover


+ shipping

Up for sale, a Fender EC Vibro Champ in near-mint condition and in perfect working order, complete with the original slip cover. A discontinued Fender model, the Eric Clapton signature Vibro Champ is built on the platform of Fender's venerable Tweed-era 5F1 champ circuit, with added Tremolo and Attenuation.

Simple, elegant, and touch-sensitive in its responsiveness, this Champ delivers the rich, textured overdrive and dense harmonics of Fender's golden age Tweed amps. The onboard Tremolo is a feature not originally offered on the Champ's diminutive form factor, and this welcome addition adds dimension and pulse to the signal.

And if 5 watts is simply too much power, the onboard High/Low Attenuation switch allows for further dialing down the output volume while faithfully retaining overdrive characteristics.
