Fender '68 Custom Vibro Champ Reverb: Classic Fender Tone with Modern Enhancements

The '68 Custom Vibro Champ Reverb amplifier is a versatile and compact option for guitarists who seek classic Fender sound with modern enhancements. Famous for its rich, tube-driven tones and iconic tremolo effect, the '68 Custom Vibro Champ Reverb adds a built-in hall reverb and a larger speaker for improved low-end response, making it ideal for practice, recording, and small gigs.

Classic Fender Sound with Modern Features

The '68 Custom Vibro Champ Reverb stays true to its vintage roots with a silver-and-turquoise front panel and aluminum "drip edge" grille cloth trim. This amp's 5-watt power output and all-tube design produce the sparkling, clean tones and smooth overdrive that have made Fender amps legendary. The addition of a hall reverb enhances the amp's versatility, providing lush, spacious sounds that complement the natural warmth of its tube circuitry.

Enhanced Low-End Response

The original Vibro Champ was renowned for its powerful tone despite its compact size. The '68 Custom Vibro Champ Reverb builds on this legacy with a 10" Celestion TEN 30 speaker, delivering increased low-end response and greater overall tonal depth. This makes the amp more suitable for a variety of playing environments, from intimate practice sessions to small gigs.

User-Friendly Controls

The amp features a straightforward control layout, allowing players to quickly dial in their desired sound. The vintage-style skirted black plastic control knobs provide easy access to Volume, Treble, Bass, Reverb, Speed, and Intensity controls, enabling precise adjustments to achieve the perfect tone.

Durable Construction

Built to withstand the rigors of regular use, the '68 Custom Vibro Champ Reverb is constructed from high-quality materials. The 7-ply 5/8" birch plywood cabinet ensures durability, while the molded plastic strap handle with nickel-plated caps offers a comfortable grip for easy transport.
