PG's Joe Coffey is On Location in Van Nuys, CA, for the 2009 LA Amp Show where he visits the Fender area. In this video segment, we get to see and hear from Fender's little '57 Champ.
The '57 Champ is a small but mighty tone machine crafted within the their '57 Tweed series. It is an all-tube 5 watt comb with a 8" Weber Alnico speaker. It features a 6V6GT power tube, 12AX7 preamp tube and 5Y3GT rectifier tube. It is covered in the traditional lacquered tweed and is hand-wired with two inputs. This little tone monster has been used by Eric Clapton, Johnny Cash, Keith Richards and countless others during recording sessions.
