    Default New to Fender Amps. Help please,

    I just bought a Champion. If someone would give me a guideline as to the settings I should use, that would be great.
    I have an American Standard Telecaster. I use the neck pick-up only. I play jump blues, jazz ballads/medium swing tunes, and blues like Albert Collins and BB King.

    I appreciate your help.

    There are no standard settings for any amplifier. It depends on the guitar, the room, the pedal chain, etc., etc.

    Here's how everybody gets the sound they want: turn the knobs until it sounds like you want it to.

    I'm a riddle, wrapped in a mystery, inside an enigma.

    Set it really loud, like this:



    You'll want the neighbors to take notice and call you a "stinker". That's how you know you have tone that moves the listener.
