Thursday, January 5, 2012| by Will Chen

Looks like Fender wanted to preempt the winter NAMM zaniness and has announced a sequel to their wildly successful Super Champ™ XD hybrid amp, the Super Champ™ X2. The new Super Champ™ X2 offer the same dual channel, 16 voice options, and 15 tube watts of power of its predecessor but offers a USB interface to customize the amp models via Fender's FUSE™ software. From the Fender website:

The Super Champ X2 combo amplifier combines 15 watts of rich, dual-channel tube amp sound with modern extra such as versatile amp voicing and a wide selection of digital effects. It’s simple, toneful and flexible, and with its easy computer connectivity you can also custom tailor your amp’s voicing and effects to your personal taste. Your rehearsal and recording sessions will really come alive with the unlimited tones that can be created with the Super Champ X2.

Made in Ensenada, Mexico, the Super Champ X2 features a single 10” Fender Special Design speaker, voicing knob for selection of 16 different amp types (tweed, Blackface, British, Hot Rod, metal and more), 15 effects with level control, dual-channel switching (footswitch optional), tap tempo control for precise delay time adjustment, 1/4” line output, external speaker capability and USB output for speaker-emulated digital recording. Fender FUSE™ software (available as a free download) allows even more tonal versatility, with customization of amp voicing and effects defaults, effects parameters deep editing, and online access to free Fender community content.
