    Product Description

    Part of a stunning collection of tweed amps the 57 Custom Champ is an amp for the true tone junkie. One of the most popular amps of all time lives again in the ’57 Custom Champ. Renowned for its flexibility, ease of use and knock out tone this is the classic sound heard on thousands of recordings.

    A wide variety of playable tones inhabit this hand-wired performer—from crisp, classic cleans to naturally compressed overdrive that responds remarkably to guitar volume and picking dynamic changes.

    On the Inside

    The Fender 5F1 circuit used in the ’57 Custom Champ has become legendary for its heightened dynamic response and sweet sounding tube overdrive when pushed. A 12AX7 preamp tube matched to a classic 6V6 power amp tube generates this in-demand overdrive. When the volume is cranked, this little wonder sings with the natural compression and rich even-order harmonics of a power tube working at peak output in Class A topology.

    Alnico 8" speaker

    The 8” Weber Alnico speaker stays true to the classic Champ sound, compressing to create fat tone at higher levels while more than ably reproducing the raunchy tones found at the top of the amp’s volume knob. The hand-wired circuit includes newly sourced yellow coupling capacitors chosen for their authentically vintage Fender tone—sparkly cleans and creamy overdrive with smooth top end and round mids.

    Stylish and classic design

    Onstage this amp looks great, retaining classic Champ visual appeal—lacquered tweed, chickenhead knob, leather handle and ¼” inputs for low or high output instruments are all here. In the studio, the 5-watt design means you’ll be able to explore the full range of available tones without overloading sensitive microphones (or your ears). Updated components, hand-wired craftsmanship and a classic circuit design all combine to create the ’57 Custom Champ, a style-spanning performer. Includes a protective cover.

    Here's what Fender say about the 57 range

    Fender’s late 1950s family of amps, known as the “Narrow Panel Tweed” models, represented the height of amplifier technology and tone for that time. Their all-tube circuitry, resonant cabinetry, and player-centric feature set combine for what might be the perfect example of beautiful clean tone that can be easily pushed into harmonically rich warm distortion. Six decades later, they continue to be highly prized by professional guitarists and collectors alike. The Fender ‘57 Custom Series comprises of four distinct models, three of which will be familiar to today’s Fender fan. The new ‘57 CUSTOM CHAMP, ‘57 CUSTOM DELUXE, and ‘57 CUSTOM TWIN have all been thoughtfully modified from previous ’57 reissues, employing custom vintage tone capacitors, 12AY7 preamp tubes, and more. A fourth model, the ‘57 CUSTOMPRO-AMP, has never been reissued before. A medium-powered unit, its 15-inch speaker creates unique throaty tones with huge bottom end, yet it has plenty of highs for sparkling electric guitar tone production.
    Each ’57 Custom model hits a specific spot in the range, to cover applications from studio to stage to arena. These amplifiers can provide perfect re-creation of historic guitar tones, or can be used as a firm foundation for creating new sounds.

    Serves my needs perfectly. Loud enough for small venues yet still quiet enough to use in the house without upsetting the family or neighbours. Great for practice sessions, great tones, one volume control, your fingers and guitar so no mucking about just plenty of playing.

    Not the service I expected when buying a £1000+ amplifier. Amp sounds great but clearly B-stock - supplied in just a box with no paperwork & protective cover plus the control panel was filthy with finger prints & grease. Andertons denied it was B-stock and I was offered a measly discount but with the promise they would at least supply the protective cover which was supposed to be included. When the cover arrived it was not the lovely Fender custom shop cover advertised but a cheap grey generic amp cover made in China. Won't be shopping at Andertons again as I feel ripped off.

    Although cosmetically it is very well made it does have a very noticeable hum, making it impossible to record with. Considering this is produced by the Fender Custom Shop and the high price I paid for it, it is very disappointing. In comparison the Blues Junior I got from Andertons is virtually silent.

    Glorious little amp that is worth every penny of the rather expensive price. Couldn't be happier with mine. It is everything I hoped it would be.
