Fender's Bassbreaker 15 combo amp offers musicians an array of tones and features in a stylish package. This 15W amp is powered by EL84 tubes, producing a harmonically rich sound with punchy mids. Guitarists can choose from three distinct voicings via the gain structure switch, ranging from sparkling cleans to saturated overdrive. Recording is a breeze thanks to the XLR line out, which provides switchable speaker emulation and a power amp mute. The Bassbreaker 15's rugged yet refined look, with dark gray tweed and oversized knobs, completes its appeal as an amp for all occasions.

Tweak Your Tone With Three Distinct Voicings

The Bassbreaker 15's three-position gain structure switch unlocks a plethora of tones with the turn of a knob. Position one offers articulate cleans with chimey highs, position two introduces a touch of grit and compression for bluesy leads and rock rhythms and position three unleashes a beastly overdrive reminiscent of cranked British amps. Each voicing has more gain than the last, providing guitarists with an amp that can handle any genre.

Record With Ease Using the XLR Line Out

Home recording and studio work are a breeze with the Bassbreaker 15. Its XLR line out features switchable speaker emulation, allowing direct recording without sacrificing the amp's natural tone. Power amp muting mutes the speaker output but leaves the preamp active, providing overdriven tube tone at apartment-friendly volumes. Whether practicing, recording a demo or cutting an album, the Bassbreaker 15 delivers professional results.

15 Watts of Harmonically Rich Tone From EL84 Tubes

EL84 power tubes have long been associated with British amps, known for a midrange-heavy sound with rich harmonics. The Bassbreaker 15 harnesses 15W of power from a pair of EL84s, resulting in a tone that cuts through the mix with bell-like highs, tight lows and an aggressive midrange. When cranked, the EL84s produce a compressed, saturated overdrive with touch sensitivity. Despite its modest wattage, the Bassbreaker 15 provides enough volume for small gigs and band rehearsals.

A Stylish Vintage-Inspired Design

The Bassbreaker 15 features cosmetics inspired by tweed Fender amps of the 1950s, with a few modern touches. A dark gray tweed covering and black control panel give it a sophisticated vintage vibe. Large chickenhead knobs provide a retro look while remaining easy to operate on dark stages. Fender's iconic logo, in the font used during the tweed era, completes the amp's nostalgic yet fashionable appearance.
