1 built4speed 1 year ago Seeing some of Powdog's cool custom replacement cabinets in the last several months got me inspired to try something new with my neglected Fender Champ 600. I've already modded the heck out of this amp over the years - swapped some caps and resistors, installed better tubes, replaced the grill cloth, swapped in a Weber alnico speaker, and installed a switch on R19, allowing me to switch out the tone stack for tweed sounds. Still, it didn't get played all that much. I decided to build a better cab for it and stick it in the living room for a quick access practice amp. I would have liked to buy a cab straight from Powdog, but I needed to do this super cheap. So DIY was required.Since cheap was the requirement, I decided to skip tolex and just build a simple wood cabinet. These are the results. Predominantly knotty pine, with some oak and poplar accent stripes, and some leftover walnut thrown in for good measure.The front panel was originally going to look a bit different, with circular cutouts for each speaker, but this looked better in the end.It now sports two vintage, 8 inch CTS alnico speakers I picked up cheap on ebay. A bit more volume now, and a bit better overall tone. I'll likely swap in some old stock vintage tubes I have on hand. I wouldn't necessarily recommend this level of modding for this cheap little amp, but this was a gift, so I have no plans to ever part with it, and figured I may as well go a bit nuts with it.
