15 Watts of Classic Sound- Fender Super Champ XD

Amplifier manufacturers embraced solid state technology/ circuitry back in the 60’s and very few vacuum tube designs survived. It was a cost consideration… so much less expensive to produce solid state amps. But tube amps have had a diehard following over the years and those with the financial resources continued to pay premium price for all-tube gear. A few years ago, Fender introduced a little 15 watt tube amp, the Super Champ XD. Although it has solid state tone/overdrive presets and digital effects, the ‘guts’ of this amp is classic vacuum tube. Equally nice is that the amp is downright affordable with an unheard of street price of $300! Guitarist, Don Anderson, has a wonderful demo video of the Super Champ XD amp. I’m sharing it here.
