One of the most consistently awesome vintage amps out there: the Tweed Champ. This one is no exception. It’s loud, gritty, and sweet with a history that makes it special. Someone painted it black at some point but it was stripped back to its original Tweed by a more knowledgeable and loving owner.
5F1 circuit in this 1962 gem delivers all the tone you’d expect. It sounds really righteous. Single knob operation or as we like to say: one knob to rule them all. This amp has been fully serviced and has some replaced caps and resistors, so operationally it’s really solid. Has a replaced power cable with a modern 3-prong plug for safety.
Lastly, this amp comes with a 1960s amp cover, possibly original, certainly of the period. It’s a nice addition to a great vintage package. Don’t let this one slip away. It’s looking for a forever home and we don’t expect it will take long to find its way there.
