Well, it started with this: my 1960 Supro 1616T. I’ve had this thing forever and I kind of rediscovered it recently and found it pairs so perfectly with my R8, it’s ridiculous. This made me want to find other small, low watt amps... About 3 weeks ago my GAS set in for a Custom ‘57 Champ. It’s pricey (even used) but man, it’s just awesome all around and so much damn fun to play with. Exceeded ALL my expectations. And then last week in a “I didn’t mean to win it on eBay” moment, I picked this up: Fender Champ II from 1982. Rivera-era, last of the hardwired, non-Custom Shop, Fender amps. The Super Champ gets way more attention, but after replacing the fender blue label speaker with an original Reverend All-tone 1030, there’s something to be said for the Champ II and it’s simple circuit. It seems to sound best with the vol around 4, master cranked to about 8 - and then back off the volume at the guitar until it just cleans up. Really surprising tone for such a small amp. Now I’ve got my eye on an old Gibson GA5 (my wife will flip if I buy another amp). Who else is rockin’ small, low wattage amps?
