There's even more to love about Fender's Champ XL series in the fully loaded Champion 100 XL. This fearsome 40-pounder delivers 100 watts of hot-blooded stage fuel through its sophisticated 2" x 12" speaker system and fully independent 2-channel footswitchable architecture. Its solid state front end speaks with Blackface authority, with plenty of cluck, weight, and sparkle to evoke chunky rhythms and sweet, singing leads. Each channel's 8-stop Voice control takes you on a guided tour through classic American cleans to modern British high gain and beyond. A streamlined FX selector — also channel independent — sweetens amp tones with a host of A-class time and modulation effects; there are even tap switches for delays. The icing on the cake are the Champion 100 XL's specially voiced Celestion 12" speakers, which deliver the kind of attack, dynamics, and low end that'll make you swear you're playing a classic Fender. An included 2-button footswitch supplies access to clean and lead channels from across the stage.
