Fender Super Champ X2 Review

From the construction of their famous Stratocaster and Telecaster electric guitars to the typography of their logo, all about Fender is screaming iconic. The Fender tone is, however, more iconic than the Fender look.

Getting a Strat to play, of course, can help you achieve that sound, but just as necessary is a Fender amplifier, which classic artists such as the Rolling Stones, Chuck Berry, and The Beatles have used at some point, as well as more recent classics such as The White Stripes and The Strokes.


It was in 2012 that the Fender Super Champ X2 was first announced. It was developed as a redesign of the Super Champ XD, a previous member of the Fender Champ amplifier series. It is a solid-state amplifier that has also been rectified by diodes. It provides 15 watts of delicious tone and strength.

It is common for a Fender amplifier that has been released in the last decade, as it provides a mix of both timeless and classic sound, while still managing to be a modern amplifier that can be easily integrated into a technologically advanced set-up. Fender's FUSE app is also compatible with the Fender Super Champ X2, which means you have at your fingertips an immense variety of different tones.
