The original Cool Tone Mod kit

If you have a Fender Champ 12 with red knobs (or black knobs) this kit is a must-have. One of the most famous kits in the world for quite a long time. The kit give the amp a ton more overdrive, tone and guts. It makes the amp really come alive and scream!

The clean sound is also greatly improved, richer and fuller, more natural sounding. So easy to install you can't belive it. four parts, two wires and a screw.

What does it do?

The modification changes the "bias point" of two of the tube stages so the stage has higher gain and a more Classic Fender tone.

At the same time the kit changes the frequency response of the same stages using the Torres "Staggered response" technology to get a wider frequency response, more top and bottom end, plus much, much more sustain and a fuller tone. The clean sound is greatly improved with a bigger "soundsage" and the overdrive moves from the somewhat restricted 70's, 80's tone into a modern sound with a lot more drive. Overall, a cool application of new technology that, in this case, is very easy to install
