    Product Description

    Built to Clapton’s own exacting specifications and handmade in the United States, the Fender Eric Clapton EC Vibro Champ Guitar Combo Amplifier is a fascinating variation on the ’57 Champ designed. The EC Vibro Champ has a ’50s-era output tube bias tremolo, which produced a more throbbing pulse than later Fender tremolo circuits, and a switchable power attenuator which reduces speaker output.

    Clapton recorded some of his biggest hits with a tweed Champ; a late 1950s practice amp and Fender classic prized by countless pros for its great low-output sound and easy-to-record performance. He still uses one today, and Fender has answered his call for a special model with several distinctive features by introducing the EC Vibro Champ. It’s a must for Clapton fans and guitarists who want the ultimate in low-power tube performance!

    What is your opinion of this product?
    Apparently now out of production, this is a stunning reincarnation of the Champ. I can't hardly believe how the amp is able to hold onto its sweet dynamics even at lower volumes. I can see why this is a recording favorite. The tremolo really adds to the tone even when it is just click on to the minimum setting and is a pulsing monster (maybe even too much so) dimed. The low power setting, unlike so many onboard attenuators, does not suck the tone out and the thing is build like a little tank. I can see these becoming collectable and very desirable in the years to come.

    Love it!!!
    What is your opinion of this product?
    I got to be honest at first look i thought to myself this looks like a childs toy (because of its size NOT LOOKS) but after playing it...WOW ! It sounds like a much louder larger size tube amp.i waited 6 months to write this review and the amp is just great. Not much if any laquer on it but that doesnt bother me. This is my first amp with a weber speaker which is kinda dark sounding but in a good way. I play slide guitar open E with an Epi DOT with a pair of Gibson 490's and a Epi Les Paul Tribute with a pair of Classic 57's and the tone is just bad a$$.. One of the best things about the amp for me is the switch from 5 to a lower wattage- i live in an apt complex and i havent had one complaint yet...! Well worth the purchase...I will eventually change the tubes though but for now its just fine.

    A game changer for a working guitarist .
    What is your opinion of this product?
    the closest thing to a time machine you can get . That being said, people that are use to cheaper amps with a million bells and whistles and just cheesy tones and effects will just not " get" this amp. Clean and dirty at the same time with just enough breakup at low volume. Amazing to record with and mikes up well. A foot switch would be nice but easy to find. Worth every penny. Not for the hobby guitarist.

    Superb sound and loud for 5 watts. This is a thousand dollar tone so it is with the money. I was skeptical. Great distortion. No need for eq it's all your guitar they creamy warm tubes
