    I'm thinking of picking up one on the used market for a home amp.
    I've checked out the manual and videos,but am not clear.
    On the Chorus/Reverb setting can you adjust between how much chorus vs. reverb or is it just a static setting where the combination between the two is fixed.
    Same question for the delay/reverb setting.
    Can I sweep between more reverb and less delay or is it a fixed level between the two.

    I don't use those effects, but I have experimented with them. They're fixed. You can control the overall, combined FX level with the knob and the speed/interval with the TAP button, but that's all.

    LutherBurger’s got the answer. You can’t dial in more chorus and less reverb; they’re just paired together and controlled by one knob.
    The Tap button works pretty well for adjusting delay though.

    Thanks for the replies guys.
    I had a feeling that the levels of the combined effects were at a fixed level.

    You're welcome.

    I don't remember whether the manual makes this clear, but in each of the "reverb + chorus" and "delay + reverb" sections, only one of the three settings combines two effects. The other four settings are two different flavors of reverb alone and two of delay alone.

    When I'm playing my Champion, the FX knob is usually set for spring reverb or slapback delay. I like those.
