Pro Bassman Sound and Style

The Bassman 500 combines Fender's world-standard "blackface" tube preamp with a lightweight 500 watt Class D power amp. Its dual-channel design uses modern technology to maximize classic technology, with classic Fender '60s "blackface" styling and a wealth of innovative features on the front and rear panels. A vintage channel that delivers the full, warm sound of classic Fender amps with passive tone stack and an overdrive channel that delivers the aggressive and responsive sound of a modern active tone stack (choose between channels with included footswitch). The Bassman 500 mates perfectly with Bassman Pro Series Neo speaker cabinets and Rumble V3 410/115 cabinets.

Huge bass tone is one thing. Huge bass tone with the grittiest, most viscerally satisfying and aggressive overdrive you’ve ever heard is quite another.

Deep/bright pull switches
Deep/bright pull switches

For even greater tonal definition, this powerful bass head’s two "bass" control knobs double as "deep" pull switches that emphasize the low end with pronounced power and clarity, while the two "treble" control knobs double as "bright" pull switches that emphasize the high end with singing brilliance.
