Classic Bassman Style with Power to Spare!

Fender's Super Bassman - the name says it all. Claiming its place at the head of the table, Fender's 300-watt, all-tube bass amp employs modern technology to maximize classic Fender tube mojo. With six 6550s in its engine room, this stadium-level head sports tasty mid-'60s Fender Blackface styling and two footswitchable channels: vintage (serving up classic Fender warmth), and overdrive (with the responsive, aggressive sound of a modern active tone stack). You also get modern touches such as Automatic Bias and an XLR out. If you need an arena-scorching bass amp, check out Fender's Super Bassman.

Fender Super Bassman Bass Amp Head at a Glance:
  • Big power for big gigs
  • Automatic Bias: the best of vintage and modern technology
  • Two channels: the best of vintage and modern tone
Big power for big gigs

The Fender Super Bassman bass amp head serves up massive power for the largest gigs. Playing arenas? There aren't very many bass amp choices out there. Now there's a new contender in the monster tube bass amp sweepstakes. Whether you're dialing up warm, round vintage Fender bass or tight, aggressive modern bass tones, the Super Bassman delivers it all - at spleen-shaking volumes.

Automatic Bias: the best of vintage and modern technology

The Fender Super Bassman gives you the best of vintage and modern. You get Fender's classic tube mojo - juiced with sophisticated technology such as Fender's very cool Automatic Bias that keeps you from spending time messing with your amp's tubes when you should be playing. Automatic Bias constantly monitors and automatically re-biases tubes for optimal performance - and even alerts you when service is required!

Two channels: the best of vintage and modern tone

Fender's Super Bassman puts the best of vintage and modern tone right under your foot. The Super Bassman has two footswitchable channels - vintage and overdrive. The vintage channel serves up the round, warm, classic Fender sound of a passive tone stack. Kick this valve beast into overdrive, however, and prepare for shock and awe. You get the tight, responsive, and aggressive sound of a modern active tone stack. Versatile would be far too weak a word. Jekyll and Hyde might be more like it...

  • 300 watts of all-tube tone
  • 2 channels - vintage and overdrive (footswitchable)

Owned this amp for about two years paired with the Fender 4x10 Neo Bass Cabinet. I don't usually play large arenas. Actually this amp shines at low volume as well. Playing a quiet jazz set in a small room I can dial in that perfect tubular growl on the vintage channel. It will cut through the mix and is perfect for a three piece combo in a small room or a big stage production. I also get to leave all my effect boxes in the gig bag. Just plug and play! It is heavy but worth the weight.

Fender Super Bassman

Words cannot describe the difference it makes when you are using Tubes vs solid state. You turn this amp on 10 min later I turn off the standby switch and play for a few hours. The amazing thing is as the tubes heat up it just sounds better and better. Channel 2 you can get those Jack Bruce Cream sounds as well as this slight GROWL the sound we have loved to hear from a bass. You have to have one of these.Bones
