OVERVIEW

A decades-long favorite of bassists AND guitarists.

The straightforward Fender 59 Bassman outperforms most of the fancy amps on the market today. In the 1950s, the Bassman was perfect for amplifying that new invention, the Fender Precision Bass. This 50W rig allowed the bass to hold its own onstage with drums, electric guitars, and miked piano, the common instrumentation of the day. Over the years, it also won the hearts of guitarists who, after experimenting with all kinds of preamps and effects racks, found its simplicity, great tone, excellent dispersion, and touch-sensitive dynamics a true pleasure. This reissue is true to the original while adding several enhancements: U.S.-made GT-6L6 output tubes, improved 12AX7 preamp tubes, and an internal bias pot, making it easier to experiment with other output tubes. It also features a genuine lacquered tweed covering, solid finger-jointed pine cabinet, and an original-spec 4AR4 rectifier tube for natural compression when you play hard. Includes fitted cover.

Comments about Fender Vintage Reissue '59 Bassman LTD 4X10 Guitar Combo:

This is an amazing amp for rock guitar. The overdrive is amazing, but it starts to overdrive at around 4 volume. I wish it started to break up a bit later. It doesn't have that Fender wall of clean, and doesn't sound like the Twin's and Deluxe Reverbs do cause it distorts too early. But for that Holy Grail, pure-tube, overdrive... this is it!
