90s fender japan champ w/ reverb .. who knew?


I think Elk made these for Fender Japan. Supposed to sound pretty good.


$1K for a 5 watt Fender? While it's a lot nicer than the Champ 800 reissues, that's a lot of cash for what it is, and in the condition it's in. Still---Fender could sell a bunch of those stateside at a reasonable price.


I chanced across a tiny Yamaha ss practice amp years ago with a tiny spring reverb.


Elk is new to me. Wonder if this was spring reverb or some kinda modern-world approximation thereof.


I think Elk made Fender-like tube amps in Japan during the 60's, 70's, 80's and 90's. If you look closely at the picture of the back of the amp who can see a reverb pan in there. Elk amps were made before digital reverb existed. Whether or not the reverb circuits were tube driven or not, that's another question.
