I bought a 1982 Super Champ about 3 weeks ago. I did a little swapping of components. The Tone stack had a typical Fender .047, .1 & 250pf setup with the 100K slope resistor. I went with a pair of .022's, a silver mica 250pf and a 56K slope resistor and I put a pair of .047's between the Phase Inverter and Output section instead of the .022's. Basically I took away some of the bottom in the Tone section and added in the output section. It gave it better clarity. I also used a Mullard ECC83 for the first stage and a pair of Mullard EL37's for output valves. I've never been a 6V6 fan.. and I put a Celestion Alnico Gold 10" speaker in it! I've not really been able to use it above 3 1/2 to 4. It's Loud! I had one of these little amps back in 1982 but sold it around 1990 to help finance my 1969 Marshall 50 watt head. But, all in all a nice little amp that doesn't take up much stage room but has plenty of volume and nice tone!
