After the original Champ amplifiers received such acclaim, Fender introduced the Vibrochamp in an effort to build on the success of the simple 5F1 circuit by adding a tube-driven tremolo with speed and intensity controls without losing any of the Champ’s renowned tone.  A unique-sounding and apt recording amp, the Vibrochamp has been used by a wide range of artists, from Eric Clapton to Mac Demarco.

Lightweight and portable, the Mojotone Vibrochamp style amp is perfect for the studio, practice, and even mic’d club gigs.  Our Vibrochamp style amp is a class A, 7 watt tone powerhouse with clear and articulate sound reproduction at low volumes. And no worries, if you want the raw and entrancing sound of a dimed out Champ, this kit will deliver without losing its inherent clarity.

Enjoy the smooth, natural compression of a single 6V6 power tube and the versatility of two inputs with varying output levels. Controls from left to right are volume, treble, bass, speed, and intensity. Nothing beats a well-designed and short signal path with a straight-forward control panel -- our Vibrochamp amp is based on a circuit that has proven its worth for almost 60 years!

We offer a completely hand-wired Vibrochamp style amp assembled by our expert builders right here at Mojotone headquarters. Our in-house technicians have an extreme attention to detail and take great pride in their work -- our builds are 100% guaranteed.

For those players who are a little more "hands-on," we also offer the amplifier as a kit with a variety of options including small parts only, full kit (both head and combo configurations), export specs, and more.

True to Leo Fender's original design and tone.

by Daniel G. -

Kit came well laid out and with exceptional documentation. Parts were separated into compartments in plastic bins. All wires were color coded. Amp Chassis mounts were included. Fiberboard was included. Build went fast and easy. True to Leo Fender's original design and tone. Amplifier tone is exceptionally pleasing and true to period and style of amp. For a subjective review, it seems everyone who plays the Vibrochamp smiles and is quite taken with the tone of this top tier kit.

Well done.
