Demo of the '59 Bassman® amplifier. Here Fender's Shane Nicholas pulls up a range of sounds from clean to crunchy chords and solos with an American Standard Strat® HSS on the bridge pickup using his pick attack and nothing more.


The Fender Bassman® amplifier of the 1950's evolved as the pro bassist's 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.

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.
