70s Fender Champ Problems


Recommended Posts

My Champ gives a good clear tone yet, when I run a fuzz through it (any style, be it germanium or overdrive or distortion) it has an untamed frizzy high end. Ironically, the most effective way to fix this is to run a SansAmp last in the effects chain--in a sense, the amp's high end is very "hi-fi". What I'd like out it is more of a full-bodied, warm sound, or as much as is possible through an 8" speaker.


Is this something fixable? On a similar note, the hi and lo pots have little effect, which may have something to do with the problem. The tubes are most likely original, and the speaker is stock.
