Widely regarded as one of the best bass amps in history the Blackface Bassman, released 1952, has been taken off the shelf, given a modern tech makeover, and is ready to rock. If you're a gigging musician who needs enough power to stand up against a band at full volume the Fender Bassman 500 is the amp for you, getting as close as possible to the sound of the vintage classic. With enough power for medium to larger gigs it partners up perfectly with Bassman Pro Series Cabs.
