    Yeah the little amp is awesome with every guitar I have. I did tweak it a bit such as the bass tone hack and a new speaker! I see never needing to sell this little guy cause it is that good!

    Back up is a Quilter Micro Block which is actually very good.[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    Thanks Hammerhead. The pic of the tube layout is so simple, even I understand it.

    Anyone know of something similar for a DeVille 410 and a Twin Reverb?

    I’m wondering if I can tap into this thread for advice, I apologize if I’m hijacking and feel free to tell me to start my own thread. I’ve been playing this fender champion 600 for almost a year. I bought it having already had the Fromel supreme mod kit installed. I think I get some great tones from it. I don’t use many pedals as seen in my bad basement pic. The only issue I have is that I’m not getting a real muscular sound from it. I’ve tried some blues JRs that were good but different. I would like to hear some suggestions from you guys, thanks!

    Coming from playing acoustic primarily, I'm currently using a Line 6 Spider V 30 (don't throw anything please!) It works for what I need at the moment, but I definitely want to get something I can use pedals with or get a clean sound from without messing around a bunch.

    Welcome to Gretsch-Talk CousinWarsh!

    I would suggest creating a specific thread for your question, only because it will get more attention, and you'll get more answers. I will ask here if you are asking about a mod to do on the Champion, or are you asking for suggestions for a more muscular sound?

    Thanks for the welcome. The amp was modded when I bought it and I like the tone. I’m looking more of what I have, suggestions on the champion sound but more.

    I’ll start a thread over in the ampage section. Thanks for your reply!

    Gretsch guitars sound great in so many amps. For the past five years I've been lovin' my Budda Superdrive 45.

    this thing is the real deal. its made by a swedish company. i have used nearly all of the available v.s.t amp sims on the market and this one is so real if you close your eyes you are sitting in front of these amps. i go through a mixer into my soundcard so im basically preamping the signal with warm analog tone. amazing simply amazing
