The Fender EC Vibro Champ is a handwired 5-watt boutique copy of the guitar combo amp Eric Clapton started using for recording in his early solo career after Cream and Blind Faith. For recording, the tones of low-wattage tube amps has long been known. Eric found that just a twist on his Strat's volume pot gave him a complete range of sound from clean to overdrive. Featuring EC-spec'd tremolo and power attenuation, the Fender EC Vibro Champ is a little combo you're gonna love. The Fender EC Vibro Champ is a boutique amp in tweed built in Corona, California. The EC Vibro Champ features hand-wired all-tube circuitry and premium components. The finger-joined solid pine cabinet resonates with a warm, woody tone, and is finished in authentic lacquered tweed with a vintage brown/gold grille cloth and a genuine leather strap handle. This is how they used to make them.
