These Fender Champs include the tremolo circuit built into the amp, and were therefore dubbed the Vibro Champ.
Also includes volume, bass, and treble controls. Tremolo has speed and intensity controls.
The new Vibro Champ joined the rest of Fender’s new “blackface” line, so called because the amps had black faceplates, black knobs, black handles and black tolex covering. Fender added a silver grill cloth to give this line a new, high contrast look. But what really distinguished the blackfaces was their new sparkley sound. Guitarists also found they could turn up the volume and get a decent crunch tone. Fender’s new amps were popular and production numbers at its Fullerton CA factory increased every year.
