  • Highlights

    TUBE CIRCUITRY
    TUBE CIRCUITRY

    Simply put, there’s nothing quite like the pure, powerful sound of a Fender tube bass amplifier. The tonal richness and touch-sensitive dynamics of real tubes have given Fender amps an unmistakable voice for the past 60 years—defining the sound of musical recordings and performances you’ve heard your whole life.

    OVERDRIVE CHANNEL

    Huge bass tone is one thing. Huge touch-sensitive bass tone with the grittiest, most satisfying and versatile overdrive you’ve ever heard is quite another. Blend the Overdrive channel with the Vintage channel to unlock entirely new sounds.
