I've been looking at a Fender Tweed Champ copy and have played it, however there seems to be a very noticeable volume jump between 3 and 4 on the volume knob. with 1-3 selected there is almost no volume out of the amp, yet at 4 the amp becomes very loud. Is this normal for the tweed champ style amps? I know these are low watt practice/bedroom style amps, but it seems like there shouldn't be that big of a jump in volume.
That can sometimes happen depending on the amp design and the volume pot taper, but I'm not sure if it's a thing which happens usually with tweed champs.
the 5f1 i built does similar. Don't underestimate how loud 5 watts is. And it sure sounds sweet dimed.
Ok thanks guys. Just wanted to make sure that there wasn't an issue with the amp before I decided to purchase. I have a couple of fender blackface amps and the volume increase seemed smoother as you roll the knob up, where as this tweed champ clone seemed to jump highly between 3 and 4 on the knob. If there is an issue with the volume pot taper, I assume that's a pretty easy fix with just swapping out for a different pot?
