A Must-have Bassman - in a Stompbox!The BOSS FBM-1 offers up classic Fender Bassman tone in one rugged little stompbox. The Bassman was the world's first bass amplifier, and it quickly gained favor with guitarists of the day for its unique tonal abilities. In fact, it's still a popular pick. Designed in collaboration with Fender, the FBM-1 faithfully re-creates that flavor and feel of a classic '59 Bassman amp. So, grab the tone of one of the most sought-after amps in history (for just a fraction of the price) with the BOSS FBM-1.

BOSS FBM-1 Fender '59 Bassman Effects Pedal at a Glance:
Classic Fender '59 Bassman tone in a stompbox
The Fender '59 Bassman is far and away one of the classic amps, and having that sought-after tone in a stompbox is truly a marvel. Created as a bass amp, guitarists quickly latched onto the Bassman for its beefy tones. From chunky rhythm tones to smooth solos, the FBM-1 faithfully delivers the sound and response of the Bassman.
Great as a pre-gain pedal for Fender tonal color
The coolest thing about the FBM-1 is that it can work with any amp to add Fender color to your tone. No matter what you play through, the FBM-1 will deliver a touch of the Bassman sound to your signal. Plus, the Bright In input can be used to create a brighter tone, similar to the original Bassman.

What's not to like!! It will make any small tube amp SING! Not for METAL music.. close [-]

The Best Way to Character your Amp
by RockinVic from Ssan Jose, CaThis is a great pedal overall. Use it to character your amp, not drive it. The overdrive to me sounds a bit muddy.

the FBM-1 is great because it allows me to character my Valve Jr. to sound very similar to my bassman. Then i use a boss Blues Driver to actually drive in my leads.
here is my pedal set up

The FBM-1 will definitely get you close to the sound of a real Bassman, you just need to learn to EQ it and you will be fine. close [-]

If you owned a Bassman back years ago and want to get the closest thing to it, but in a pedal, get this. This is the perfect compliment to a jazz, blues, or classic rock guitar rig.
