This is Ceriatone's Custom built tribute to the Fender Blackface Vibro Champ boutique guitar amp (1964-1967), an amazing 6 watt amp powered by a single 6V6 with two 12AX7s (preamp and tremolo) and a 5Y3 rectifier. This Champ is built with a special twist! It has a selectable TWEED / BLACKFACE switch, so it's TWO AMPS IN ONE!

These are not your average 6 watt amps! These are rare and much sought after, and you'll pay handsomely for an original IF you can find one, and then it will be either a Tweed OR a Blackface. The Ceriatone Champ Ultra is BOTH!

Note: PPIMV mounted on Front Panel will be either mounted in place of pilot lamp (Marshall styles) or a hole will be drilled (OTS styles).
          PPIMV mounted on Rear Panel will always be in place of a Speaker Output Jack.

Main photo is for illustrative purposes only and pricing is for Chassis I. Photos may include options that are not included if you order the standard version of the amp or don't order all options available. We also may not offer all options available and/or shown in main illustrative photos. Photos are of products assembled by Ceriatone. We no longer sell kits. You must order all kits direct from Ceriatone Malaysia. Ordering options for your amp may add several days to the build/lead time.

Ceriatone amps are Custom made, hand wired amps, built to order. There is meticulous attention to detail that is second to none, and no shortcuts are taken. Each amp is 100% hand built, hand wired point to point, and then is thoroughly tested and burned in before it is shipped to you. For this reason it takes approx. 6-8 weeks for your amp to be built and shipped. Options can add 1-2 weeks to the "standard" build time.

Prices shown on includes the shipping cost to the USA only. We only ship to the USA, Canada and Mexico. Shipping to Canada, Mexico, Puerto Rico and the US Virgin Islands will have additional shipping. We'll invoice the difference in shipping and it is due at time the order is placed.

Note: We ONLY ship to PayPal verified addresses if paying via PayPal. No exceptions.
