Our Fender Champion 600 5C1 underwent a full rebuild on 15/11/23. Text from repair report below:
Chassis very corroded and most components found to be out of spec. Removed everything down to chassis and wire brushed as much as possible. Using original valve bases, transformers tag strips [sic] and front panel components, rebuilt amp. With mosley [sic] new components. Replaced 2 wire mains cord with 3 wire for safety. Replaced faulty 6v6 and 6sj7 valves. Cleaned volume control and jack sockets. Wired new lead to speaker. Bench tested for both operation and safety.
s/n 3223 on chassis
s/n 3226 on case
Although not as original as some would like, this amp is now sounding like it originally did and is considerably safer to use.
This has been left as a US 110v version and an auto-transformer should be used at all times in the UK and EU. (3 pin essential for safety).
All original parts that have been removed have been retained and will be included with the amp.
