+1 on the Jensen P10R. If for some reason you wanted even less breakup there's always the Jensen P10Q
In a Champ you're more than good with the headroom/breakup characteristics of the Jensen P10R.
My vote is definitely for the Jensen P10R.
3 Gibsons, 5 Teles, assorted other guitars, about a dozen amps, about two dozen pedals, a Smith & Wesson SW40VE, & a .40 SIG Sauer P226R = too many toys, no money, carpal tunnel, and a serious hearing problem.
