Finally pulled the trigger on a Custom Champ. Spent a lot of time in my very small studio playing it today and comparing to my other two amps. It really works well when playing along with a track from my monitors. My other higher output amps would wash the monitors out unless there were at pretty low volume. The Champ sits in there real well at about 4 on the dial. Just at the edge of breakup with some really nice tube amp swirling harmonics at that level.
