The Fender Champion 20 is a simple to use, and incredibly versatile combo guitar amplifier. Delivering an awesome selection of warm tones, the Champion 20 has been designed as the perfect all-round portable guitar amplifier to get you rocking out with minimal fuss, making it fantastic for both practising and performing.
The solid state design features a single channel that produces classic Fender clean tones, as well as hosting a wide range of built-in effects including - but not limited to - Reverb, Delay/Echo, Chorus, Tremolo and Vibratone. The impressive array of effects allows you to experiment with your tone, from creating smooth shimmering delays to incredible depth and space. Shaping your output is very easy, which helps to make the process highly enjoyable. The delay also comes equipped with a Tap tempo button, which allows you to dial in the exact tempo that you wish the delay to operate at.
As well as built-in effects, the Champion 20 is loaded with several amp voices, enabling you to pull an astonishingly complex range of tones from the amp with ease. Whether you're looking for a straight up clean tone, a dirty tweed sound, gritty British amp roar, or a heavy metal snarl, all you need to do is dial in your desired tone and play. The compact 8" speaker can easily handle whatever you run through it, making it ideal for someone looking for an amp that responds well to many different musical styles.
The Fender Champion 20 comes with a 1/8" headphone output so you can practise your chops day and night without annoying the neighbours. There is also an 1/8" inch auxiliary input so you can connect an external media device and play along to your favourite songs or practise with a backing track.
The Fender Champion 20 combo guitar amplifier is an incredibly versatile little practise partner, and is great for when you want to jam with your friends. Whether you're just starting out or have been playing for years, you'll be pleasantly surprised by how powerful this beauty is.

It's not perfect, of course. It makes quite a thump when you turn it off. The tap tempo setting isn't remembered when switching effects, so the chorus and delay are always too fast for me. Then there are things like: no mid eq, one channel only, no post-amp fx loop, etc. But these are things for a bigger, more expensive amp rather than for this little gem.
Dawsons sent mine out with a European power lead, which is not great customer service. But I have plenty of spare leads so it's not a problem for me and not Fender's fault.
