The Fender® Bassman® amplifier of the 1950's evolved as the pro bassist's answer to amplifying a great new invention: the Fender® Precision Bass®. This powerful 50-watt rig could easily compete along with the common instrumentation of the day: horns, piano, four-piece drum kit with calfskin heads, and maybe even an electric guitarist with a nice, new 10-watt amp! By the ‘60s and ‘70s, the original all-tube "Tweed" 4 x 10 Bassman® gained popularity with rock, country, and blues guitarists as a great-sounding, reliable, easy to use guitar amp. Even some emerging British amp designers of the day copied its circuitry for use in their most celebrated designs.

In the 1990's, Fender® released an affordable reissue of the now-collectible '59 Bassman® amplifier to massive acclaim. Many guitarists tired of experimenting with preamps, equalizers, and effects racks rediscovered the simple pleasure of plugging into a Fender® tube amp and rocking. The Bassman® amp' s wide stage coverage, touch-sensitive dynamics, and full-frequency "swirl" make it the perfect vehicle for building a great tone with almost any guitar or effect pedal hooked into it. The Reissue Bassman® continues to be a staple of the Fender® guitar amp line to this day.
