I've played the Epiphone Valve Junior and have heard nothing but good stuff about it, for it's price range. I understand they have similar specs. I've just read up a bit and it seems like whatevers cheaper might be the better option.

Still, I haven't heard the Fener Champion so I don't know. The Valve Junior sounded alright to me but I didn't get much time with it to tweak settings much.

O.o, not many settings on the valve junior to tweak "volume and On switch" Unless of course you mod it out.

Well, if you buy an EQ pedal it's supposed to be quite good. Maybe grab a OD or distortion pedal aswell (depending what you're into) and I'd say you have a good setup.

Thanks, I will get the valve junior because can be moded and can be added a tone control and the speaker is 8" and in the fender champion is 6" and the two are 5 watts

If you have the money, I would recommend looking into the Line-6 Spider series.

Not over a tube amp and pedals, definitely not. The ones you were going choose will get you much better tone with an overdrive or distortion pedal.

Hi I am analizing and some people say that 5 watts are less or tiny. I think that not because that when I am gonig to use it in the church will be with a mic. And because I want a tube amp small or big but not too expensive. What do you think?

Hey JMPA, 5 watt tube is a lot louder than 5 watt solid state. It will definitely be loud enough miced. People who are saying it's not enough are most probably talking solid state watts.

The one that says it to me has an VOX AC30 that is 30 watts Class A. I have read that 5 watts RMS on Class A of a tube amplifier sound like 40 watts RMS of solid state. I think that this is louder for me.

why do you think the beatles played with the Vox AC30? Those things are loud. Beatles shows got so loud they ended up saying screw this lets turn it down and actually hear what were playing. Those things are powerful.

That is true the VOX AC30 is really loud and has 30 watts Class A of tube power. But 5 watts of Class A need to be louder not too much but louder for practice and for a small church.
