Item specifics

Condition: Seller refurbished : Split the cost with friends

Seller notes: In good original condition including original speaker. Serviced and working well - earthed mains cord fitted and ‘death cap’ removed. Sounds very good, though we advise fitting a new Weber Alnico speaker to these amps for better performance - classic recording amp. An original 57 Tweed Champ.

1957 FENDER CHAMP 5F1


Soundgas are pleased to offer for sale is this US-made 'Tweed' Fender Champ valve (tube) amp dating from 
October 1957 in good cosmetic condition and excellent working order. This is the year the reissues are based on.

Please see detailed photos below to assess condition. 

It's been serviced, had the 'death cap' removed and been fitted with an earthed mains cable so is ready to safely rock your world. 


One of the great recording amps of all time: it sounds fantastic and has tone for days: a great 'crunch' amp. 

It is in very good original condition apart from the 3-core power cord, the death cap and various out-of-spec minor components removed in the past - all major and important original parts are present.

 

The original handle is functional but showing signs of age.


The original speaker is in good condition, but it's nearly 60 years old. For those who want to use their amps, rather than just look at them, we advise customers to fit a Weber Alnico Signature 8S - an excellent modern replacement driver for the Tweed Champ. Not only does this save the original speaker from further wear, but we find the tone is much-improved: more volume, definition and bottom end.

Whilst collectors like to see original speakers, fitting a more efficient modern speaker maximises these amps' potential tone-wise.


It is of course a USA 110v mains unit so will require a step-down transformer for UK/EU use.


We are passionate about supplying high quality vintage gear to our customers and go the extra mile to ensure complete satisfaction. 

Shipping discount available if paying by bank transfer.
