Champ 600 upgrade to point to point wiring
Here at TubeAmpRepairShop.com Tube Amp Repair Shop we have completed two Fender Champ 600 projects removing the circuit board and wiring the amplifiers point to point.
We added a high quality feature which is a variable feedback loop allowing for hi clarity or more breakup depending where you set the knob.
If you would like to upgrade your Fender Champ 600 to a point to point amp with an amazing sound call Eric 818 645-1075.
The price for the upgrade is $250.00.
Here is feedback from the customer
“Every once in a while you run across an out of the ordinary product or person that impresses you more than any other.
Eric and his Tube Amplifier repair and design business are just that.
I have received two tube amplifiers that he converted from a pc based to a point-to-point design.
The quality and performance of both of of these amps are the best that I have ever seen.
In addition, I have had the pleasure of watching Eric work on his bench with the skill and expertise of a craftsman who loves what he does. These qualities are rare today and something to be admired.
