Product Description

The two-channel Bassbreaker 18/30 offers the performance of two time-tested Fender classics. Channel One offers pure, bell-like clean tones and warm crunch when driven, thanks to its Blackface Deluxe amp circuitry with extra headroom and 30-watt output. Channel Two’s circuit is based on an 18-watt ’61 brown Deluxe, offering plenty of power amp overdrive with easily controlled dynamics at ‘real world’ volume levels.

An included footswitch allows easy selection between the two, and four EL84 power tubes add a distinctive midrange punch. With pedal-friendly tube circuitry, simplicity of operation, and updated vintage aesthetics, the Bassbreaker 18/30 Combo is sure to become a modern classic.

Bassbreaker series guitar amplifiers continue Fender’s storied lineage with a kind of ‘parallel evolution’ that breaks away from tradition with dark gray lacquered tweed covering, refined pointer knobs and unique circuitry as well as 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 for today’s players.

Fender Bassbreaker 18/30 Tube Guitar Amp Features

  • Channel one is a 30-watt version of the blackface Fender Deluxe amp, delivering bell-like clean tones that gradually warm up with a twist of the volume control
  • Channel two is an 18-watt version of the brown 1961 Deluxe amp, for lower-headroom tube tone and warm, compressed overdrive
  • Channel-selection footswitch included
  • Four EL84 output tubes for tighter rock distortion character
  • Simple signal path for pedal-friendly operation
  • Two 12 inch Celestion V-Type speakers for tight response and ‘vocal’ tone character
  • Cabinet has Birch ply construction and semiclosed back for full, resonant response and lowend ‘thump’

Product Review

I have owned many Fender amps, Fender Pro, Blues Junior, Blues Deluxe, and the Hot Rod Deluxe. This amp slays them all. I play Danelectro guitars into a rat pedal into the bassbreaker 18/30... Very simple rig. Our band plays mostly original punk rock, with a few misfits, and Ramones covers thrown in the mix, and this amp has the sound to get the job done. Great for the practice space, and shows!!! It's nice to see Fender do something different! This isn't your grandfathers Fender tube amp!

Awesome sauce

Product Review

I quickly ordered the 18\30 because I was swooned over by fender making virtually 2 amps in one. I have always been a fender buff and collector so I had to have this. I cannot complain about it at all. I gig with it regularly and it is LOUD. If your neighbor is within throwing distance this amp might not be the best for that application. Oh yeah I also love how it takes pedals. Just remember LOUD LOUD LOUD. I had a nice conversation with some local police officers the day it arrived so I had the wonderful opportunity of finding out first hand that it is LOUD. So loud that I believe Ted Nugent will be blowing up birds at 100 yards away.
