Modeled after the 1958 Fender Champion Amp with 5F1 Circuit, dressed in laquered Tweed. Right after I finished this project Fender brought out a Reissure of that Amp disbelief.

It is the third Amp I have built in this style. Material costs were about 270$. It has a 8" Weber AlNiCo-Speaker that was the most expensive part of the whole Amp. It was a lot of work, but also a lot of Fun to build it. And it is even more Fun to play it.

I wasn`t born to be an Audio Engineer but I`ll try my Best to capture some pure Sound from the little Amplifier when I get home next Month. To my Ears it sounds like a hotrodded old Fender Tweed Champion practice Amp. It has a Tad more Overdrive than the 50s Original.

Greetings,

Flexnib
