Maybe those seem like two really different amps to compare, but … I'm looking for something relatively simple that I can get a good Fender clean out of. I play a Tele and a Strat, 99% clean, usually just a bit of reverb or compression on 'em. Not really interested or concerned too much with the dirty channel/amp models. I was looking at the SCX2 and it seemed really promising, but I got mired down in the different speaker choices. (I've never changed a speaker from stock in my life, but so many people are talking about the Ragin Cajun and the Celestion upgrades that I got baffled.) (Plus the idea of having to plug it into a computer to lower the mids etc makes me nervous.) I've played an SCX2 with the Celestion and it sounded fine, but I'm wondering if I could get away with the stock speaker since I'm playing clean, at bedroom levels, no band to compete with. Then just recently on one of the message boards people were talking about how happy they are with the Champion 20 as a home/practice amp, so I looked it up. Seems very simple, which I like, and the price is certainly right ($100 online). I know the SCX2 is partially tube, but to be honest I've never owned a tube amp. Would I notice a huge improvement in sound between these two if I'm playing quietly? For reference -- I'm nowadays using a Vox Mini3 G2, which I got because the Blackface amp model on it sounds impressively like my old SS Mid-80s Fender Pro 185 (which I no longer own). Just wondering if I could get something even more Fender-y in a small, inexpensive amp. - - - That said, I guess these are my questions, understanding of course that what sounds "good" is subjective: --Will that $100 Champion sound good enough or will I regret not plunking down an extra $200-300 and getting an SCX2? --Just how "bad" are the stock Champion/SCX2 speakers, considering my ears are fried and I'm gonna be playing to my cats. Thanks in advance -- you guys are the best!
