1 Year and Counting!
It’s been one year since I started posting about the greatest little amp ever invented – the tweed era Fender Champ. I’ve learned way more than I thought possible.
I’ve compiled a few of my favorite posts from the past year for your enjoyment.
In no particular order:
- My Hello World first post (maybe this order was a bit particular…).
- How vacuum tubes work – Part 1, Part 2, Part 3 (I LOVE old film clips).
- A wicked cool chart showing Fender’s explosive growth in the 50′s and 60′s (my Excel skills are awesome!).
- There’s asbestos in your vintage Fender Champ (don’t miss the video clip all the way at the bottom of the man in an asbestos suit in a furnace with a mannequin).
- A super rare Champion 800 and a very cool lineup of Fender Champs courtesy of Terry Foster.
- A crappy Champ I bought for some reason that escapes me.
- And early posts about the 12AX7, 5Y3GT and 6V6GT vacuum tubes.
It’s been a grat ride and I love all your feedback. Don’t hesitate to let me know what you think and what you’d like to see in the future.
