Product Description

In a historic collaboration, Fender introduces its first artist signature amplifiers-EC Series amps bearing the name of legendary guitarist Eric Clapton.

 

Clapton recorded some of his biggest hits with a tweed Champ; a late 1950s practice amp and Fender classic prized by countless pros for its great low-output sound and easy-to-record performance. He still uses one today, and we’ve answered his call for a special model with several distinctive features by introducing the EC Vibro-Champ. Built to Clapton’s own exacting specifications and handmade in the United States, it’s a fascinating variation on the ’57 Champ designed with a ’50s-era output tube bias tremolo (which produced a more throbbing pulse than later Fender tremolo circuits) and a switchable power attenuator (reduces speaker output). It’s a must for Clapton fans and guitarists who want the ultimate in low-power tube performance.

 

Features include hand-wired all-tube circuitry on eyelet board with premium components; circuit based on late-’50s Fender Champ amp model 5F1 (about 5 watts); tremolo speed control and footswitch jack (footswitch optional); single 8” Weber® Signature speaker with alnico magnet for dynamic, sensitive response; Groove Tubes® 6V6GT output tube, two 12AX7 preamp tubes and 5Y3GT rectifier tube; Schumacher custom transformers; internal speaker disconnect (allows use of external 4-ohm speaker enclosure); finger-joined solid pine enclosure for warm, resonant tone; lacquered tweed covering with vintage-style brown/gold grille cloth and leather strap handle. Deluxe fitted cover included.
