Fender's '57 Custom Champ® is inspired by the original sound heard on thousands of recordings for crisp, classic cleans to naturally compressed overdrive. 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 12AY7 preamp tube matched to a classic 6V6 power amp tube generates this in-demand overdrive.
The 8” 4-ohm Weber Special Design alnico speaker stays true to the classic Champ sound while the hand-wired circuit includes newly sourced yellow coupling capacitors to provide vintage Fender tone.
