This Victoria 518-T amplifier is their classic 5F1 amp circuit.  A clone of the 5-watt tweed Champ, it's a great amp for either home, recording, or small, intimate venues.  Listen to what Julian Lage has done with a Champ, and you can get a great idea.  


This amp shows light wear to the tweed covering and moderate wear to the handle.  It sounds great and doesn't have any issues.


Ships free in the United States, and for reasonable rates worldwide.


Specs from Victoria Amps:


The 518 is a tribute to the Fender 5F1 Champ from the 1950s. After 60+ years, this little gem continues to delight players for being an outstanding practice and studio amp. This is a perfect choice for club dates when paired with an efficient external speaker cabinet. Did you know that the original ’50’s Champ has been the mainstay of many of the Stones recorded tracks for decades.
