    I have a Fender Champion 110.
    http://support.fender.com/manuals/gu...110_manual.pdf

    I have not used the amp in a long while, it has been in storage. I was going to look for a small amp to play, maybe play a coffee house setting. I would also like to be able to line out to a small cab. I think that the amp is in good shape. I will have to spray in some contact cleaner to get the scratch out of the pots.

    I am mostly a straight up rock, hard rock player. I will either be using my Nova system or a combo of a few pedals, TIM, Disnortion.

    So I have a few questions.
    Does this type of amp require service?
    Should I bring it in to be serviced?

    Could I use this amp in a small setting, or would it not be loud enough?

    Could cleaning it up and maybe replacing the speaker with something better bring new life to it?

    I am just looking for some overall opinions and options.

    Thank you for the help.

    It's basically like a Frontman II 25R (a buddy has the Champion 110, and I have a 25R). A better speaker will help a lot (like a Ragin Cajun) but they're great little SS amps IMO. Not an amp tech, but I doubt it needs any service, unless the pots are scratchy. Should be fine for a coffee house IMO. They're known to pop when you turn them off. We called Fender and they said it won't hurt it. Just a quirk of the amp they said. My 25R seems to bleed off and doesn't pop, so they must have fixed the quirk in later amps. If yours does, just turn the volume down before turning off.

    I have to break it out of storage, and fiddle with it. I expect the pots to be scratchy.
    I guess after playing I would have to get some information of a Speaker change vs a new SS amp.

    Thoughts?
