I will reference the premium capacitor set for the Fender champ 5f1 (tweed)
your set indicates as follows: qty. 1 of C-ET33-450 qty.2 of C-ET10-450 and qty.1 of C-ET25-25 , the champ 5f1 (tweed) calls for 5 capacitors in total, it has 2 of the C-ET25-25 caps. , your set only includes a qty. of 1, is there a reason for this?

According to our resources you only need one 25-25 electrolytic cap for the 5F1 circuit. If you need more than one 25-25 please add it to your order.
The 5e1 has one more cathode bypass cap than the 5f1. Check the schematics.
The second 25-25 electrolytic cap for the 5F1 circuit asked about by the above individual is an optional tweak going in parallel with a 1500 ohm resistor off the first cathode section of the preamp section or V1A of a 12AX7 (if prefered) tube. This is a bypass cap.
Hello, in ordered the premium capacitor set for a Fender Champ Tweed. It comes with 4 electrolytic capacitors, but I noticed that the Champ has 5 electrolytic caps. Do I need an extra C-SA25-25 or is one the 25v caps not normally replaced? If so, which one does the 25v cap in the kit replace and which one can stay?

This cap set is for the original 5F1 layout which only uses a single 25uF/25V cap. If there are additional capacitors in the version you have, they may need to replaced if they are out of spec, leaking, etc.
