Although the last Fender clone to be produced in Juketone’s ‘Blood Line’ range we have gone back to the beginning with our version of the 1957 Fender Champ 5F1.
The Juketone True Blood delivers everything you would expect from the original 5w tube amplifier that was used by so many greats throughout the years, Joe Walsh, Eric Clapton, Slash, Keith Richards, Joe Perry and Robert Cray to mention just a few.
Hand wired with quality componets including a single Ruby 6V6 power tube, a Ruby 12AX7 in the preamp and a 6Z4 rectifier this amplifier oozes all the charm of the original. Yes, it doesn’t have a tone control, what do you think your guitar’s controls are for? One volume control is all you need to hear sweet cleans through to break up and into full volume distortion for that definitive sound…….and all at palatable volume.
Although the True Blood’s soul is firmly in 1957 with regards to build, tweed covering and oxblood grill cloth; welcomed modern attributes are silver corners, a more durable leather look strap and a rather fine Celestion Eight 15 speaker.
In all, a classic recording and practice amp with impeccable tone and looks with a price well below its competitors.
