The classic king of 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.
The mighty 4×10” Bassman began life as a bass amp before guitar players discovered its sonic wonders and adopted it as their own. Prized by guitarists everywhere for more than half a century now, it lives on as a must-have guitar amp treasured for its pure sound, workhorse reliability, classic style and uncluttered ease of use. Countless guitar players have rediscovered the great simple pleasure of plugging into this amp, and today’s ‘59 Bassman® LTD delivers wide stage coverage, touch-sensitive dynamics and full-frequency tone that make it perfect for building great sound with any guitar and effect. A Fender classic then and now.
