A wonder of wonders

Product Review

I have been a proud Fender Bass player and equipment user since the early 70s. Started out in a local band with my 1st used Fender Bass - it played beautifully. Over the years I've continued to explore the wonderful sounds of other Fender products. I now play on a much larger scale with my home church choir. Now currently using my 15 year old signature Victor Bailey Fender Bass I enjoy the quality in sound between the old and new Fender SUPER Bass Amplifier head. Fenders products are top notch and simply the best there is!

American musical always has my back !

Product Review

Can’t go wrong with a giant amp like a 300 watt fender Bass man , I’m a very active bass player and I play at church with 3,000 -5,000+ memebers weekly .... this thing does not disappoint at all... loads of headroom , volume, and tone. American musical has been extremely helpful through the whole process of me buying my amp , will definitely be buying more equipment from them soon !

This Amp Is amazing

Product Review

I have an older Fender Bassman 300 PRO and this head is so much warmer sounding than that one. Yhe dual channels make it very versatile and the foot switch makes it east to switch channels. This is way more than I was hoping for . I have 2 Ampeg SVT's a 1070 blueline and a 1972 and they are great amps but for me this Fender Bassman is head and shoulders above them in tone and versatility.If you are looking for a tUBE AMP YOU Need to check this one out

Worth every penny!

Product Review

This amp is amazing other then the weight. It’s a two man job for sure. Only having it a short time I’m blown away by the tones you can get from this head alone. The clean channel is clear and punches hard, and you can dial in the perfect amount of dirt if that’s what your looking for. I’ll put it up against an Ampeg any day.

Love this Amp!!

Product Review

This amp rocks...would put it up against an SVT any day of the week!! Plenty of power, awesome tone, and the high gain channel gives you the nice distortion that is becoming a staple in Bass tone...The auto bias adjustment is also a really nice feature with the ability to change how hot or cold you want to push your tubes...very versatile amp, even playing the upper register stands out...could not be happier...

SUPER Tone, SUPER Volume, SUPER BASSMAN.

Product Review

I was nervous of being stuck with a sales gimmick here, with vintage being in style again. Took a chance with this product & am as happy as can be. I would recommend this to a friend.

I've only used it on about 5 gigs in the couple weeks I've had it. No problems yet. The side handles are awesome & the silver fabric still looks great.

My favorite part about this amp is that it has the vintage sound with modern day features. It was the selling point over the vintage Fender Bassman's. My favorite is the auto bias computer in the back. As well as the pull knob mute.

My passive vintage basses (Fender J Bass & Peavey T-40) sound nothing short of amazing. Almost giving the capability to sound "how they are supposed to". The slightest little movements will be picked up, almost like youre discovering new capabilities in your playing. Yet, there is ONE con... My active electronic basses don't really sound that good on it to me, its def. a vintage tone rock/funk & soul monster.

Easy to use, the whole two channel set up is awesome.

VERY Clean and WARM on the clean setting. VERY WARM and FUZZY overdrive. No pedal or digital effect can replicate this tone.

A bit pricy, but if you can afford it...Go for it. Not a single complaint. Especially with the payment plan option only a couple gigs a month and its paying for itself!
