I got this little baby under my hands last weekend. The owner wanted one of my big babies (a '77 Siverface Twin) and offered me a tryout... so it had to come home with me. I've had other Champs before (the last one, a 80s Rivera-era Champ heavily modded) but this one seemed to like the Hi-Lo Trons a lot. Plus, it was 100% original and really mint (like it's never made it out of a bedroom or a studio) and I also got a little cash. I tried it at home with my p90s and my Filters and my lispsticks, and it seemed to like them as well. It missed the hump of a bigger speaker, but I have other amps that could do that job. I hated to let my Twin go, but I hardly used it in the last 2 years so maybe it was about time. I'm not sure this Champ will see any more action as well outside my bedroom (and I'm not really a bedroom player... or maybe I wasn't. Now I'm getting old... ), but the tone it's really a keeper. I put a boost in front of it and it was bottleneck heaven. It doesn't feedback at all, no matter how many pedal you chain into it (maybe the 8" speaker has something to do with it). That's quite unusual for me, as I love feedback and use it a lot as a weapon of guitar tecnique distraction . Maybe it will make me concentrate on working at my skills again. The '77 Champ.
