Fender 59 Bassman Valve Guitar Amp, Lacquered Tweed
Fender 59 Bassman Valve Guitar Amp, Lacquered TweedDetails
The 50s Fender Bassman was the pro bassist's answer to amplifying a great new invention: the Fender Precision Bass guitar. This powerful 50-watt rig could easily compete with the common instrumentation of the day: horns, piano, four-piece drum kit with calfskin heads, and maybe even an electric guitar through a nice, new 10-watt amp! By the 60s and 70s, the original all-tube 'Tweed' 4x10 Bassman was popular with rock, country and blues guitarists as a reliably great-sounding and easy-to-use guitar amp. Even some emerging British amp designers of the day copied its circuitry for use in their most celebrated designs.
Due to the manufacture of these amps which are hard wired with specific UK plugs fitted, they are for sale in the UK only

Many guitarists, tired of experimenting with preamps, equalizers, and effects racks, rediscovered the simple pleasure of plugging into a Fender tube amp. The Bassman'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.
