Bassbreaker amps
The Bassbreaker series is what happens when Fender goes to the dark side. Providing more overdriven, gritty tone instead of its traditional cleans. This new series of heads, cabinets and combo amplifiers is a new chapter in the history of Fender amplification, offering players a new, distinctive Fender style. The series offers alternative settings designed for the player in search of a harder, heavier sound and a dark and devious new spin on classic Fender styling. Each one is not only super pedal-friendly, but also extremely versatile, with a variety of head, cab and combo configurations. 

The new series takes the 45-watt 1959 Bassman platform and “breaks” it, with early Fender block-letter logo, black tweed covering, and refined pointer knobs hinting at this stylistic evolution

The choice of EL-34 and EL-84 power tubes hint at amps from the British companies who “borrowed” Fender circuits in the 1960s. The sound is pure, unadulterated tube goodness

As well as the 45-watt flagship, there are also lower wattage models that are particularly suited to a variety of uses and venues. Each Bassbreaker in the series has a unique application and feature set, all with the professional tone and demeanor that today’s rock players will appreciate. 

Fender amplifiers are true purveyors of the “Fender sound,” heard on the greatest recordings and during the most renowned performances of all time. Each one lays the foundation for personal and tonal exploration—a simple and versatile companion for guitarists/bassists of all types as they proceed on their own musical journeys and shape their unique sounds.
