The Fender 68 Custom Vibro Champ Reverb 1x10 Combo Guitar Amplifier is here! If portability is your thing, along with Reverb and Trem, then the Custom Vibro Champ Reverb has got you covered! This combo amp for guitar is lightweight, small, and loaded with player-centric features that make it the most useful Vibro Champ ever made!
This 68 Custom Vibro Champ Reverb is powered by a single 6V6 Tube. The 6V6 tube has powered venerable amps like the Princeton Reverb and Deluxe Reverb since their inception. This is the little brother to the 6L6 and is used in lower wattage amps. They provide that classic bright Fender sound that overdrives with musicality.
A pair of 12AX7 preamp tubes allow us to shape the tones to perfection and give us a classic-sounding overdrive tone once the amp gets loud enough. The 12AX7 preamp tube is the most often used preamp tube and is found in practically any tube amp, high gain, clean, whatever!
The Tube Driven Tremolo sounds fantastic! Not so much that WUB WUB WUB tremolo, this one is a little smoother, a little more musical. The Reverb is not generated with a Spring Tank and tubes in this amp. Fender has included a Digital Hall Reverb in the Vibro Champ Reverb. This verb is a little more subtle but certainly gets wet enough once you get it cranked up. You can obtain a 2 button footswitch separately to be able to turn the Reverb and Tremolo on or off with your toes.
The Vibro Champ Reverb has been a long time coming! As an owner of an Original 70s Vibro Champ, I pined for it to have that sweet Fender Reverb and now they do! Built with modern-day know-how, and great components like a Celestion Speaker and a Schumacher Power Transformer, this highly portable combo amp for guitar is sure to become a staple!
