Description

If you're in the market for a Champ, this might be your ticket. It is really hard to find a cleaner example, especially one that still has the original handle intact.

A couple disclaimers here, both of which are made up for in the overall condition of the amp, in my humble opinion: the tube chart is gone. You can see where it was adhered, but alas it is not there. The speaker currently in the amp is a 1959 Jensen. This speaker was pulled by the previous owner from a Gibson amp to replace the Champ's original speaker. This was done because someone had the original speaker reconed, but they performed an 8 ohm recone on it, which doesn't let the amp put out full power. The original speaker will be included with the amp. We tried both - the '59 Jensen does sound wayyyyy better!

The filter caps have been changed and the power cord as well, so this one is ready to go! Original parts included.
