Hi, I am very new to the electric and was looking for an amp for my epi lp plustop pro, with what R&D i have done i have concluded to these two amps(as in my country they are same price) and fits in my budget. Though i know in terms of effects and features katana is far superior to fender. But I am planning to use multi-effects process (like zoom g1x-four or any other suggestions are welcomed) and use the clean channel of the amp, as per youtube demo's i found the clean channel sound quality of 50xl much better(maybe due to celestion speakers) but there are many mixed reviews of fender champion 50xl. Currently i am into playing blues, R&B and classic rock tone(not into metal), what thought process i am currently is that i will get tone/effects from my multi-effects only the amp sound quality must be good and should be able to takes pedal/effects well. I might be completely wrong with my approach and should i consider some other options(like using onboard effects provided by katana, wait for katana 2 in my country market or save more to buy something else). The reason for so much thought is because i cannot try these two in store(as its available online only) and I don't want to loose my learning interest because of I am not getting the tone/sound i want. Also, i don't gig or play in open, the amp will be used in my room only.
