Fender Bassman 100 (Silverface)Published on 03/14/09 at 16:24
The Fender Bassman 100 bass guitar head is a tube based amplifier that has 100 watts of power. It has two 1/4 inch inputs for each channel and has two channels in total - one for normal and one for bass instrument. It has EQ settings for each channel, as well as a master volume. In the back it has a 1/4 inch speaker output to send this to a speaker cabinet.

UTILIZATION

The configuration of the Fender Bassman 100 Head couldn't be easier to use as it has quite basic controls.

UTILIZATION

The configuration of the Fender Bassman 100 Head couldn't be easier to use as it has quite basic controls. Because of this, zeroing in on the sound you are trying to achieve isn't too hard and there is a great deal of variety available. It is easy to get a good sound out of this and has a great sound quality overall. I don't have a manual for this, but it is easy enough to use that you shouldn't need the manual too much.

SOUNDS

The Fender Bassman amplifier is great for all types of music, but I have mostly used it in rock and pop with great results. I usually use this amplifier with a Fender speaker cabinet and a Fender P-Bass or Jazz Bass. I only use this amplifier with a clean tone, and I always get great sounds with this. Its ease of use makes it a quick process to get a good sound from this amp.

OVERALL OPINION

I've been using the Fender Bassman 100 Head for about five years and it is really one of the best bass amplifiers I have used. The sound is full and great for both recording and live use. The price is reasonable if you can find one used, and is great option for all bass players looking for a high end amplifier. All in all, the Fender Bassman amps from the 1970s are some of the best bass amplifiers around.

I have one for 12 years. I do not just use it unfortunately because it is too big for my apartment. In the era pay 4000 francs. Today is 1,500. I did a studio session with there are 6 years with my rhodes mark 1 to 88 and was doing great. It's a bit too strong even when. I would advise the 50W version of dj very very powerful. Otherwise I'll post a "real" review when I have this amp test as it should. If qqun version 70 '50 but could have intresser me to make a change with a few more.

Authentic and very fat

Fender Bassman 100 (Silverface)Published on 07/20/14 at 07:27
(This content has been automatically translated from French)
It is actually a hybrid fender silverface / blackface "drip edge" to 66 watts without master.
Mounted with good lighting and a cab with Weber.

UTILIZATION

Easier is not: we both channels (normal and bass), divided into 1 low gain and one hi-gain each, which can of course be bridged.
There are 3 settings channel: volume, treble, bass. That's all for potentiometers.
It is therefore plug'n'play

SOUNDS

The sound is really round and heavy, it is far from Vox AC30 and Celestions.
He eats very well the effects (big muff, screamer, prince of tube tone ...). When doing cruncher amp sound is absolutely daunting, but what I prefer is to stick a fuzz. You end up with a wall of sound...…

He eats very well the effects (big muff, screamer, prince of tube tone ...). When doing cruncher amp sound is absolutely daunting, but what I prefer is to stick a fuzz. You end up with a wall of sound incredible in front of you.

A little breath when you do not play but given the age of the beast is a bit normal.

OVERALL OPINION

I use it for 2 years, I had a Vox AC30 cc2 before that was only good for clear sound (unlike the old vintage AC30 sounding exceptionally well).
I could compare it to a twin reverb silverface, the type of sound is comparable but HP Weber make the difference.

I have to bring in revisions every year because it often has bad capacitors, but since the sound that I draw that does not bother me.

If the choice over again, I would do it with closed eyes, ears wide open.

Just crazy

Fender Bassman 100 (Silverface)Published on 10/29/12 at 16:14
(This content has been automatically translated from French)
All Tube Amp. Date 74 mine, bought secondhand last year. Of 100 w fender, which dislocated.
low two inputs, two inputs "Instruments". A bright instruments on channels (which I think is useless), a volume for the crunch, three knobs bass, midrange, treble, a master volume.
This summary is wish!

UTILIZATION

This is an amp 70s, there are 5 knobs to move ... It plugs, adjusted the gain a little, and it plays live. A manual would serve no purpose.
the origin, it was intended to be a bass amp. But he has no interest for bassists. Too round, too hot, too "soft". However, with a guitar ... It's just monstrous.
So both inputs low (I mean entries, because they are not channels, clean...…

So both inputs low (I mean entries, because they are not channels, clean and lead by example) (me) useless. Even plugging a guitar top, the sound is completely muffled.

SOUNDS

Precision: with this amp, I 4X12 cab fender pyramid the same time. The final report is to my mind much that the amp cabinet. I tried the amp alone on a Marshall 2x12, it sounds serious, but still much smaller. Conversely, I tried the Blackstar Artisan pregnant with a JCM 900 and Marshall, both amps were transfigured!
Overall, the Bassman back a density and serious medium incredible. There is a thick its pretty crazy.
clean sound, with the volume to 2 or 3, is highly crystalline. as the sum of fender. grow to 8 or 9, you get the crunch ... :-) No effect, no hope of having a popping sound, or even really fat. it is very clean and precise.
I play with a 333, a Gretsch Anniversary box half a Danelectro 12 string fender or Spirit. In fact, I just have a TS9 and a Rat for distortion, a Wha and reverb (which still lacks the amp ...). And each time, it sounds serious ... In a style Blues Rock / Rock but both more violent stuff, type stoner, Noise, No Wave. I believe that what most characterizes it is this density / power sound at once precise, warm and full.

OVERALL OPINION

I for one year. I had tried many or amp before, Vox (AC 30) Fender (hotrod twin reverb) and Marshall (JCM 900 and 800). For now, I have not found anything that suits me much.
I bought 1600 euros with the enclosure (ok, a bit expensive, I admit). Still, I bought it tomorrow if it is necessary!
