Details

The Fender Bassman amplifier of the 1950s evolved as the pro bassists answer to amplifying a great new invention: the Fender Precision Bass. This powerful 50-watt rig could easily compete along with the common instrumentation of the day: horns, piano, four-piece drum kit with calfskin heads, and maybe even an electric guitarist with a nice, new 10-watt amp! By the 60s and 70s, the original all-tube Tweed 4 x 10 Bassman gained popularity with rock, country, and blues guitarists as a great-sounding, reliable, easy to use guitar amp. Even some emerging British amp designers of the day copied its circuitry for use in their most celebrated designs.

 

In the 1990s, Fender released an affordable reissue of the now-collectible 59 Bassman amplifier to massive acclaim. Many guitarists tired of experimenting with preamps, equalizers, and effects racks rediscovered the simple pleasure of plugging into a Fender tube amp and rocking. The Bassman amp s wide stage coverage, touch-sensitive dynamics, and full-frequency swirl make it the perfect vehicle for building a great tone with almost any guitar or effect pedal hooked into it. The Reissue Bassman continues to be a staple of the Fender guitar amp line to this day.

Tends to he harsh when pushed...could possibly be the speakers have to break in.....

I would like to see some more actual control/sweep to be able to lessen the brittle top end.......although it work's well with pedals.
I feel there should be more noticeable sag from the tube rectifier......could just be my ears....Before you by check a few side by side.

Oh yeah.....put some wheels on it! (Posted on 5/7/2016)

I have heard the original and somehow this one isn't the same - it seems excessively bright to my ears.
It is made fabulously - workmanship is top notch, just doesn't have the bluesy feel of the original. (Posted on 7/11/2012)
