1978 Fender Vibro Champ Amp


Fender's Vibro Champ amplifier model debuted in 1964 amongst the cool new line of black face plate amplifiers including the Princeton Reverb and Deluxe Reverb. It features the standard mid 1960s single ended Champ circuit but with an added tube driven tremolo section. Unlike the larger Fender amps, the smaller Champ and Vibro Champ didn't change much from the mid 1960s throughout the 1970s.
