Fender Bronco 40 Combo Bass Amplifier with Built-in Effects at a Glance:
This amp was made for recording
Despite the fact that 40 watts makes the Bronco 40 a formidable bass amplifier live, you can tell that Fender made it for recording, just by taking a closer look at the back panel. That's where you'll find an XLR output waiting to be plugged into your recording rig. And when you record with the Bronco 40, it goes from being a conveniently portable little amp to a bass blasting monster!
Killer built-in effects and onboard processing
The Bronco 40 isn't just an amp, it's eight amazing bass amplifiers in one, offering you a choice selection on the best bass sounds ever made. What's more, you also get 12 incredible effects you can use to dial in the perfect tone. Fender also knows how important compression is to getting great bass sound. That's why they gave the Bronco 40 a dedicated 1-knob compressor. Think of a tone, and this fantastic bass amp will help you find it.

Great monitor for tone freaks
by Mark Evans from Chicago ILI play in a church setting and I always use high compression. With built in compressos and limiter, XLR out and just enough power for small bands (I previously used a 25w tube head that would shock me... read more [+] through the microphone), it has a lot of power for gigging. I can lift it into my wagon and keep up with the band volume. Brilliant! close [-]

Impressive - Exceeded my expectations
by JVL from Upstate NYI purchased this amp because I wanted something decent for noodling around at home and at an inexpensive price point. I had a very good experience with Fender's Mustang guitar amps (similar format to ... read more [+]this Bronco) and figured for $250 all this amp had to do is sound decent as I'm sensitive to cheap sounding gear. The fact that it had modelling and the Fuse software was a bonus but not the reasons I purchased this amp.

As soon as I turned this little monster on and plugged in my active Warwick Corvette, I was immediately blown away. The amp physically has a substantial, high quality feel to it, and the tone out of the box without any tweaking at all is simply outstanding. For once all of the stock tones are excellent and useable. I still haven't connected it to Fuse yet as I haven't needed to do any real tweaking. This thing just sounds fantastic and the versatility in tones is mind boggling.
For the life of me I cannot believe how much great tone $250 can buy these days. I have no idea volume wise how this amp would hold up in a band situation, but I suspect if stage volume was controlled that you could use this amp as a personal bass monitor and send the direct out from the amp to the front of house system. Fantastic piece of equipment. Totally blown away. close [-]
Great bass tones and value
by Synthetrix from Los Angeles, CAI picked this up from Sweetwater recently and am very impressed with this amp. I am a beginner at bass and am playing a Squire vintage modifed Jaguar bass through it. The presets and effects are very... read more [+] useful and the Fender Fuse software brings a whole new world of tonal exploration through the USB port of your computer. Add to that the recording capabilities and you just can't go wrong for the money. It' loud enough to play with small groups and quiet enough for my condo.

Perfect for my uses
by T. A. Nelson from Kansas City, MOFour stars = great, so Bronco gets that. I teach guitar and bass at my home; record guitar/bass/keys etc. on Mac-based system; play out a bit, too. I was looking at competitors' products and found... read more [+] that Bronco 40 had the most useable range of convincing modeled sounds, was strong at studio and home volumes and recorded very cleanly quietly whether mic'd or direct. XLR out to house board yields eye-opening volume potential. Terrific value; and Fuse software and bonus Abelton free version are icing. I have no hesitation in recommending Bronco 40 for uses along these lines. close [-]
