A decades-long favorite of bassists AND guitarists.

The straightforward Fender 59 Bassman outperforms most of the fancy amps on the market today. In the 1950s, the Bassman was perfect for amplifying that new invention, the Fender Precision Bass. This 50W rig allowed the bass to hold its own onstage with drums, electric guitars, and miked piano, the common instrumentation of the day. Over the years, it also won the hearts of guitarists who, after experimenting with all kinds of preamps and effects racks, found its simplicity, great tone, excellent dispersion, and touch-sensitive dynamics a true pleasure. This reissue is true to the original while adding several enhancements: U.S.-made GT-6L6 output tubes, improved 12AX7 preamp tubes, and an internal bias pot, making it easier to experiment with other output tubes. It also features a genuine lacquered tweed covering, solid finger-jointed pine cabinet, and an original-spec 4AR4 rectifier tube for natural compression when you play hard. Includes fitted cover.

  • 59 Bassman

    As reviewed by Mr. Bassman on 4/3/2007

    The only feature is tone. Sounds great with input crossing. Gets loud too. Just add effect pedals and you can use this amp for just about any style music. Carrying my 40lbs pedal board every time got old though. I use 6 pedals plus a cry baby and volume pedal too. SKBps45 pedal board.So I bought a Fender Hot Rod Deluxe for the reverb and channel switching for overdrive to use at rehearsels and tight spaced venues and so forth.Sounds great as well. The Bassman for larger venues. Add a reverb pedal and get chills down your spine. You will love it!

  • Tone for the Purist.

    As reviewed by larryguitar on 8/24/2007

    The other reviewer here is correct. This is an amp for a niche market. There is nothing in the way of features except basic EQ and Presence. But if you are a Telecster "clean" player this is about as good as it gets. And it will take a T808 and Damage Control Glass Nexus and give you every sound you would ever need.

  • 59 Bassman RI

    As reviewed by Tom Yanello on 12/10/2009

    I have had this amp for about a year,I also have a tolex Blues Jr. and a Tweed NOS Blues Jr.Since I do not gig,I usually play through the smaller Blues Jr.They are both adequate for my needs;however when I want to blow my windows out,I use the 59 Bassman.It is tremendously powerful,can deliver huge tone and presence,and I have found no other amp that does it better,period!The only effects I use are an Ibanez Tube screamer,a Phase 90,and a Boss equalizer.Kudos to Fender !They have given us a gem of an amplifier!
