Product Description

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 Bassbreaker 45 Tube Guitar Amp 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
  • Two 12 inch Celestion V-Type speakers for tight response and ‘vocal’ tone character
  • Cabinet has Birch Ply construction and semi-closed back for full, resonant response and low-end ‘thump’
  • Matching BB-212 enclosure fits perfectly under Bassbreaker 45 combo or head
  • Includes protective amp cover

"Fender has produced a balls to the wall no nonsense clean tube amp!"

What is your opinion of this product?
Fender has revamped the famous Bassbreaker of yester years and come up with a great tube amp where you can dial in wattages from 1 to 45 watts. It has normal and bright channels and to make things easier, combined both into a single input! Three inputs total! Other than that, there are round knobs for volume for both channels as well a master volume, bass, midrange, treble and presence. With two Celestion V-type speakers and Bassman circuitry, you can dial in all types of tones and the amp works super well with pedals. As an example, I ran my G n L Legacy through a Tube Screamer and an MXR Distortion plus. The result was super rich overdriven tones ala SRV and I was able to pull off a slew of other sounds. Lots of volume to handle big venues and the ability to dial in "sweet spots" at varying wattages, the Bassbreaker is a must for smaller performance situations and of course, studio work. It has heavy duty birch plywood construction and a cool gray tweed face. You must get one!

True Fender sound!
What is your opinion of this product?
This amp has the clean Fender sound I have been looking for in a lower wattage amp. Still, in my house, at half power, I can only turn the volume up to 2! I love how my Asat sounds through it.

Reminds me of the 74 Marshall combo I once had
What is your opinion of this product?
I've only had it a few weeks but it's a great sounding amp. If you're looking for channel switching and reverb, this not for you. I use a pedal board and it sounds great.. the Celestions are a definitely a nice positive and the amp has more power than I've ever need playing in a classic rock band. Kicks butt in my opinion.

What a fantastic amp
What is your opinion of this product?
I can't get enough of this amp. It's sounds great and it's loud. The Bassbreaker is a great choice for you rock players out there. The 45 is gig ready it's loud it's proud. Did I mention it takes pedals great as well? The both channel is a nice touch as well as the watt adjustment on it. I like the look and sound of this powerful amp.

Amazing amp
What is your opinion of this product?
Amazing amp! Fender has broken through. It has the clean fender sound and that dirty British Marshall style sound all rolled into one.
