Fender tube amps are the tops when it comes to low end and solid, muscular bass tone. This versatile 300-watt beast doesn’t disappoint, with plenty of tone-shaping controls and your choice of channel voicings—and enough volume to fill an entire arena.
The passive-style Vintage channel offers classic Fender bass tone with Volume, Bass (pull DEEP), Mid, Treble controls, plus a pull DEEP option on the Bass control and pull BRIGHT option on the Treble control.
The Overdrive channel brings an aggressive, active tone stack with Gain, Blend and Volume; Bass (pull DEEP), Mid Freq, Mid Level, and Treble (pull BRIGHT); a Master (pull MUTE) control lets you maintain your sound at any level.
Beyond the brute strength and broad tonal flexibility, you’ll appreciate smart features:
- Fender’s remarkable Automatic Bias system constantly monitors and re-biases tubes for optimal performance, so you don’t have to deal with it—it even alerts you when service is required.
- An XLR line out lets you run a direct signal to the PA or console, and an impedance selector is included.
- A Mute switch lets you record directly from the XLR using the amp’s tone shaping controls without using the speaker.
This is the serious, tour-worthy, stadium-filling bass amp, ready to pair with your favorite cabinet(s). You will be heard. Choose between classic blackface styling or traditional Blonde covering with oxblood grill cloth.
Why We Like Fender Tube Bass Amps
We love big tubes and transformers for producing big bass tone with authority. And Fender has a solid history of building no-nonsense, heavy-duty rigs that deliver plenty of it. Whether you want ample headroom for any size club—or need to power an arena with low end—Fender has the bass amps that are up to the task.
Over the past 60+ years, Fender has marketed a lot of products for bass players—no company has deeper electric bass roots—and the Fender amps that have stayed closest to the original Bassman designs of the 50s-60s have been consistent performers through every era. Put simply, Fender knows how to do bass.
