A slightly different amp from those above, the Champion 20 still delivers that classic

Fender sound. If you are looking for a practice amp, this is the one to get.

Though only offering 20W of power, this amp is definitely loud enough to practice with, or even for band practice. Even with a drum kit in the room, the amp will go loud enough for you to be heard, and the great sound quality sticks around even at high volume.

Of course, this amp is also extremely portable. Many of the professional musicians we spoke to for this review had this amp in addition to a larger unit for gigs, because lugging around a 100W amp to and from band practice every week is just a drag! Whilst you might not be able to play stadium shows with this compact amp, it is certainly easier to carry than its more powerful brothers!

In addition, this amp comes with some great features:

PROS
  • The controls on this amp are more than adequate for its likely use. In fact, the simplicity of the controls on this small amp is sometimes advantageous, because it allows you to focus on what is important – playing your guitar, rather than messing around with amp settings!
  • The effects, if you choose to use them, are great. The amp includes reverb, chorus, flanger, delay, tremolo, and more. We are amazed that Fender have managed to pack this all into such a small package, and to have replicated that classic Fender sound with each one!
  • If you, or your children, are just starting out with electric guitar, then this is the amp to get. It has more than enough power to be getting on with, and the fact that it includes some classic effects means that beginners can get used to playing around with their sound before graduating to a more powerful amp.
CONS
  • Very few. If you are looking for a great practice amp, or just one that you can easily take to band practice, this is the one to go for!
