DSCF6739The 2015 Maine Blues Festival will be raffling this beautiful Fender Tweed Champ clone (with a few Soul Tramp modifications).

This 5F1 circuit was used by Fender during the mid to late 1950’s for their Champ amplifier.   The beauty of this amp is in it’s simplicity.  There is only one knob, that’s it!   No tone stack, no FX loop, no reverb, no drive, boost, bite, etc.  Just tone and mojo!  This little amp rocks.  Wonderfully warm cleans and screaming overdrive.
