Fender Bassbreaker 45 Guitar Amp Head

The late-'50s tweed-covered Fender Bassman is often called "the grandfather of all amps." It is beloved by guitarists worldwide for its simplicity, versatility, dynamic range, warm tube overdrive, stage-filling power and rugged roadworthiness.

Bassbreaker series guitar amplifiers continue Fender's storied lineage with a kind of "parallel evolution" that evokes the dawn of hard rock. Bassbreaker takes the original Bassman design and breaks away with features including dark gray lacquered tweed covering, refined pointer knobs and unique circuitry plus power tubes and speakers hinting at the U.K. amps that "borrowed" Fender circuits in the 1960s. The sound is one of pure tube greatness.

The Bassbreaker 45 is the 45-watt flagship model that leads a first-rate lineup of lower-wattage models, all with pro-level tone and performance for today's rock players.

Fender's Rick Heins shows off the Bassbreaker 45:


Features:

- '59 Bassman circuit with incredible touch sensitivity, dynamics, and "pedal friendly" response
- Dual EL34 output tubes for tighter rock distortion character
- Output level knob takes power from 45 watts to a single watt and anywhere in between, tailoring full powered Bassman overdrive capabilities for studio, stage and arena - players can dial up many "sweet spots" with various combinations of level and channel settings
- Normal and Bright inputs, plus BOTH input for achieving legendary "channel blend" tonal variations without a patch cable

Customer Reviews
5 out of 5 (2 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Great amp!"
Sound: The amp has as much low end as you would expect. I even had to dial a little bit out. The wattage control lets you get that thick overdriven sound at reasonable volumes. Using a ABY switcher really opens up what this amp can do with the blendable channel. Dont expect that high gain crunch but it does the blown out fuzz pretty perfectly. Feature: The wattage control is awesome... You can get that "Dimed" sound without peeling the paint off the walls. I love the"both" input concept so you can Blend the channels without an ABY. Would have been nice to have a footswitch included. The impedence selector is also another plus. Ease of Use: Easy to EQ, your volume is your gain. Quality: The handle has already come loose... Tightend back up but it was a little concerning for a new piece of gear... Value: It is worth what you save from buying a Marshall Bluesbreaker! Manufacturer Support: No issues! The Wow Factor: Fun amp, lots of tones. I enjoy it more and more as Inbreak thise tubes in! Overall: Great amp, lots of fun and easy to use. Only thing missing is a made in USA logo (made in Mexico)
Style of Music: Rock, Blues, do we still say grunge?
