So, I have been looking for a Fender Champ for a while now, and like most I was sold on the '57 Champ. I just didn't feel like parting with so much money for an original one with questionable electrical safety (thanks for all those videos and threads of people restoring and fixing up old amps). I also went down the path of building my own, like many here have done (thanks for sharing your experiences). But in the end I decided soldering is not really for me. Maybe the occasional one or two for a cable or a speaker, but a whole turret even in the Champ size? No. Not to mention the prices aren't that different if you combine the cost of the kits, tubes, speaker and cabs. Then after a visit to Copenhagen (I'm in Sweden) I found a chinese made, handwired point-to-point clone that looked like a Champ for peanuts. But it had a 10" speaker and some weird rectifier I didn't recognise, so I didn't bite (later deduced the rectifier to be a 6Z4 tube with no western replacements). I also found out later that the amp was more a 5F2, than a 5F1. Still, interesting for those that want that type of amp and don't have the necessary soldering confidence. After that I found the Joyo JTA-05 through an eBay advert and later some threads on it here. It looks like a simple 5F1 design on a PCB. It has a single 12AX7 and a 6V6 with a 5AR4 rectifier that can be replaced with a 5Y3 instead. From there I found the a german reseller had it but called it the Fame JTA-05. Same, just rebranded and they have changed tubes and speaker. The Fame came with Ruby tubes which sounded totally fine and a Celestion Super 8 ceramic speaker. All for about 200 dollars (177 Euros). UPDATE: In the US it is also sold as the Chickenhead F51 Little Juke, but it looks to have different speakers. (Sorry, for being Euro-centric) I took some photos of the internal components and removed the chassi from the cab. First, here is the chassi removed: Then, the top with the trannies (no markings here): Here are the tubes. There are also two speaker outputs. 4 ohm and 8 ohm. Here is the PCB. The marking on the power transformer reads: SHDX76-90A I also found som e direction printed on the PCB. What's it for? They even put in that ol'sticker. Nice touch! It looks really nice, doesn't it? My plan is to change speaker and the tubes and eventually the cab (we all want that Tweed). But to me it sounded really nice as it is. So I will keep stock. At least for now. I already have a 5Y3GT so I will probably test that for comparison. Any feedback from our resident electronics wizards? Thumbs up?
