Description

In early 1952, the Fender Bassman amplified a great new invention – the Fender Precision Bass guitar. At 50 watts, it competed easily with the common instrumentation of the day: horns, piano, small drum kit, and maybe even an electric guitar through a new 10-watt amp. Through the ’60s and ’70s, the original all-tube tweed 4×10” Bassman was popular with rock, country and blues guitarists as a reliably great-sounding and easy-to-use guitar amp. In the ’90s, Fender released an affordable ’59 Bassman reissue amplifier to great acclaim. Many guitarists, tired of experimenting with preamps, equalizers and effects racks, rediscovered the simple pleasure of plugging into a Fender tube amp. The reissue Bassman’s wide stage coverage, touch-sensitive dynamics and full-frequency swirl make it perfect for building great tone with almost any guitar or effect, and it remains a staple of the In early 1952, the Fender Bassman amplified a great new invention – the Fender Precision Bass guitar.

Tube Circuitry: Simply put, there’s really nothing quite like the pure, powerful sound of a Fender tube amplifier. For decades, the tonal richness and touch-sensitive dynamics of real tubes have given Fender amps a defining and unmistakable voice, as heard on most professional recordings and performances of the past 60 years—the music you’ve known your whole life.
Jensen® Speaker: Jensen® and Fender go way back—to the very beginning, in fact. Jensen® speakers are the traditional Fender speakers, with sweet articulation for clean sounds and cool vintage-style breakup when pushed.
Classic Tweed Tone: Heard on countless recordings since the 1950s, this is the timeless guitar amp tone of the original-era tweed-covered Fender amps and their tweed descendents from every decade since, with remarkable touch sensitivity and sound that really comes alive when cranked.
Tweed Covering: For a timeless air of vintage-style authenticity straight from the original 1950s golden age of Fender amps, this amplifier is smartly clad in a classic tweed covering that never goes out of style.
Finger Joined Solid Pine Cabinet: Solid pine was a traditional Fender amp construction hallmark of the 1950s and ’60s, making for more resonant and more “musical” speaker cabinets. The finger-joined construction used here makes for even stronger and more rugged durability.
Assembled in the U.S.A.: Just like the great Fender guitar amps of the 1950s and ’60s that founded our amp legacy and defined the essence of pure tone and power, this amplifier is assembled in the United States.
