Quality is king

maU Fiorenzi, 23.03.2018
been around since the 70s n heard/used Hiwatt-Marshall-Roland with Hofner-Fender-Rickenbacker-MusicMan. This is my very top choice for a valve amp that delivers good either in studio and live.

pros: pre and final valve amp; a smart biasing system that really let you choose how to manage the valves/sound; easy to carry and a typical Fender heavy duty crafting; just listen that Beatles "Here Comes the Sun" bass tone to mention one of the possibilities; you can select any of the two channel settings with the provided footswitch (quite handy on stage); it can be used alone in studio with *no* speakers .

cons: imho none! the price matches the quality you get
IMHO the promotional video doesn't really show you what you could get with this pearl...

my choice was to have two Fender 115 Neo boxes to handle the massive 300W RMS (not to mention when you capture that clear sound with a mic...)

Fender Super Bassman - vintage valve amp.

TrevorB, 07.06.2014
The Fender Super Bassman is a quality amplifier with loads of power and a full range of sounds. I prefer the tradition classic fender sound available in the vintage channel 1, but the overdrive channel packs lots of extra punch in channel 2. The amp is very heavy as valve amps usually are. It is well worth the extra effort to transport and maintain however. It is built to Fender USA's high standard. I have had many Fender bass amps over many years since the 1960s and this was no disappointment.
