The Best of American and British Tone

With an eye to the past while still looking forward, Fender's Bassbreaker series puts classic tones at your fingertips, with a few twists to offer up a wider palette. The Bassbreaker 15 combo guitar amp gets its 15 watts of Class AB from an EL84 power section, and three distinct voicings offer up clean to high-gain tones, giving you a ton of sonic territory to explore. And the Bassbreaker 15 is a stellar choice for studio work. You can push it to saturation at ear-friendly volumes or use the XLR line-out with switchable speaker emulation and power amp mute to capture true tube tones straight out of the amp. The Bassbreaker 15 is a classic Fender with a British twist.

Fender Bassbreaker 15 Electric Guitar Combo Amplifier at a Glance:

  • Wattage that wants to be cranked
  • Onboard extras
Crossing the pond

Many iconic British amps were based on early Fenders, so it's fitting that the Bassbreaker 15 harkens back to these classic designs. The Bassbreaker 15's EL84-based, Class AB power section is the secret to crossing the American/British sound barriers. When cranked, it exudes full-bodied Class AB style with harmonically rich EL84 tones. The 12" Celestion G12V-70 Speaker completes the British vibe on this sweet combo amp.

Wattage that wants to be cranked

Fifteen watts is often the perfect amount of power. At small live gigs, you can crank it up and not overpower the rest of the band. In the studio, it's low powered enough to get the power section really cooking, giving you amazing breakup and feel. Whenever your power tubes are working that hard, it adds a level of touch sensitivity to your amp's performance - and Sweetwater guitarists know that's often difficult to attain at a reasonable volume.

Onboard extras

Fender added a 3-way Gain Structure Switch that gives the Bassbreaker 15 three boutique voices. Each voice has more gain than the one before, in essence giving you three amplifiers in one. And the XLR output carries a selectable speaker simulator for direct recording or performing. You can also mute the power section to get recording tones in an apartment without waking the neighbors. And the digital reverb adds the ambience you need.

The Little Amp That Could

It thinks it can... and it does!
Music background: 20 years

Fender clean. Marshall crunch.

I'm a very picky musician so it takes a lot to please me when it comes to tone. I was absolutely blown away with the sound of this amp! It has a classic fender bluesy clean tone, then change the gain profile and you have amazing onboard distortion. I've always used a pedalboard and I always will, but this will be the first amp that I will actually crank the gain up on live without any over drives! As always my Sweetwater salesman Aaron Hoff was awesome! I'll continue to buy from Sweetwater not only because of price and inventory, but mainly because of its top grade customer service.
Music background: Worship, Blues/Rock.

Fender sound plus Marshall

I've had this amp for about a week and have played thru it with a band for at least 6+ hrsIt has a very nice bluesy Fender sound in the medium gain, a clean Fender sound in low gain and a great Marshall sound that's great for solos when you have it set at the master volume set to 80-90% and the gain set to 40-60% and it cleans right up when you roll off the volume. It's a very nice natural sounding distortion unlike most of the other 15-30watt amps. I can keep up with drummers very nicely and is very pedal friendlyYou owe yourself to give it a try
Music background: Been playing for 20+ yrs in many bands Blues/Classic Rock

This is the one.

When the Fender Bassbreaker Amps came out, I played all three models that were out, I really liked the 007, but not quite load enough, the 45, 18/30 models I didn't like at all, and having no reverb didn't help either. But I had my hopes up for the 15 that took longer to arrive. This is the one, a very versatile amp, very nice cleans, to bluesy mild tight overdrive, to over the top distortion, all very useable. I gigged with it last night, the tones I got were awesome, with no problem keeping up the drummer, although being only 15watts it didn't stay clean at high volumes, but close enough for me. Both my Strat and Les Paul sounded great. The reverb is not a spring reverb, but still has a really lush hall like sound that really compliments the sound. I have not tried all the other options in this amp, like XLR out, effects loop, or the Cab Emulator out, that will be next on my list. Overall I feel fender got this one right, and I believe this will be the new Blues Jr.
