I recently bought a Fender Classic Players 50s strat. It kicks ass! Locking tuners, 57/62 pickups, amazing neck...Love it. It was a steal too, only $560 w/ taxes. New. Ive tried it through a classic 30 and i loved it. But a classic 30 is too much amp for me. I currently play it through a Marshall VS20(yuck). At somepoint i plan on buying a Fender 65' deluxe reverb RI or ceriatone. Im an ok player...not great but not too bad either. But i dont feel like i need 22 tube watts. Im thinking i should buy a Fender Champion 600. Once i feel like i actually deserve such awesome amps ill upgrade.


What do you guys think?

I think you should spend an extra $100.00 and get the XD.

sure it's a decent modeling amp, but the clean, all tube channel, is pretty sweet.

try before you buy.

Even if you dont feel your at the point of needing a really great amp it would probably be wiser to go ahead and get it. because you will need/want to get it later and it'll just cost you more. Also i found when i got my amp(fender "the twin") i wasnt at the point of deserving it, but it made me want to play a lot more and in turn got me to that point much quicker.
And if you still dont wanna do that, id suggest looking into the blackhearts
people with large sig's are clearly compensating for something.

excellent excellent point

either way, you can hear yourself (your hands and pick) better with a good tube amp which will improve your playing. but if the higher end amps are out of your budget (like me for now) then a lower end tube amp is a great place to start 'cause you can always sell/trade up when you are ready. And yes, look at the Blackhearts as well as the SuperChamp and Champ 600.

the champ 600 is a really great sounding amp. ive only played through it breifly, and really liked it. and clips ive heard make me love it. i have heard that its reliability is questionable, also i have heard complaints about the speaker.

Go for it, absolutely. That amp has the most amazing cleans on it; it's made every damn guitar I've played though it sound great (those being a reverse-headstock Strat, a LP Jr., and an Epiphone Casino). Though I never tried the higher-gain input, I'm sure that sounded great as well.
