The Fender Champion 50 XL features four stompbox effects, adding more sonic-possibilities to the 12 amp tones that differ between pristine clean to heavy metal distortion. These four effects include distortion, compressor, overdrive, and octaver.
Distortion is ideal for playing rock, metal, or punk. This effect saturates the amplified sound, adding snarl, grit, and plenty of attitude to live performance. The distortion effect is also ideal for band work and for rhythm playing.
The compressor effect offers control over the dynamic range of the guitar's tone, whilst increasing the output of sustain. Compressors also make the overall level of your playing style incredibly consistent. Additionally, the compressor effect is an idyllic solution for live performance as it prevents undesirable volume spikes and projects the more delicate nuances in your playing style.
The overdrive effect offer a crunchy, naturally driven sound. Overdrive also adds singing sustain and rich harmonic content, even while producing feedback.
The octaver effect fills out your amplified sound, effectively harmonising with yourself. For live use, the octaver effect really adds something unique to your sound, by thickening up riffs and producing cutting lead lines.
