Our Vibro Champ XD takes the vintage Vibro Champ into a new era with classic styling, simple controls, a good variety of clean and distorted tones and unmistakable tube feel and performance at a remarkable price.
Features include a real tube amp combined with up-to-date extras including versatile amp voicing and superb DSP effects.
This mod does not alter the tone significantly when amp is played clean or when only the power amp section distorts.
Its solid-state overdrive and distortion eliminate many of the preamp tube problems that plague tube lovers while providing exemplary tones for rock, blues, country, jazz, metal and more.
Summary The Bandmaster came with many different circuits during the blackface and silverface eras.
See page How to select speakers for speaker recommendations. If you want cleaner and spankier preamp distortion charcteristics, you may replace the V1 or V2 12AX7 preamp tube with 12AT7 and 12AY7.
These tubes have different frequency responses than 12AX7, particurlarly when distorting.
