Along with his first Strat, Quine got a Tremolux amp - one of Fender's first piggy-back models. He owns several vintage Fender tube amps, including: "The greatest amp I've ever owned - a little Fender Super Champ with the stock Fender speaker, not the Electro-Voice." Quine has used - on tours and in the studiomore
For some reason Alan found that he could no longer get a good sound out of his trusty Mesa Boogie mk II. Paul had since moved to Fender and designed a small 18-watt amplifier called the Super Champ. Alan was bemused when asked to demonstrate this tiny amplifier, but after a couple of days, despite the lack of volume, became totally dedicated to the tone. From then on (1981/2) Alan always used Champs for recording solos. Alan owned 3 ‘Champs’ and none were modified at all, aside from changing the wiring so that the footswitch controlled the mid-boost instead of reverb (Alan didn’t use the amplifier’s reverb.)more
This small powerhouse will easily keep up in most situations. Small and light enough to carry anywhere it is easy to underestimate this amp. Wonderful cleans and excellent interactions with pedals. A must have amp if you ever get the chance.
