Fender has announced Bassbreaker, a new all-tube, nine piece electric guitar amplifier series to be released in 2016.

The Bassbreaker 007, Bassbreaker 15 and Bassbreaker 45 are each to be declined in both combo and head versions, while the Bassbreaker 18/30 will be available as a combo only. The series will also include two cabinets – the BB-112 and BB-212.

The single-channel Bassbreaker 007 combo and head don’t have a license to kill but owe their name to their 7W, full-tube (two 12AX7 tubes and one EL-84) power. They also feature an onboard treble boost and 1/4" line output, and the combo version is equipped with a single 10” 8-ohm Celestion Ten 30 speaker.

MSRP: $399.99 (head)/$449.99 (combo).

The Bassbreaker 15 models deliver 15W of tube power from three 12AX7 and two EL84. Although single channel amps, they feature a “Structure” switch offering three distinct settings for greater versatility, an effect loop and a reverb. The combo version adds a single 12” 8-ohm Celestion V-Type speaker.

MSRP: $599.99 (head)/$649.99 (combo).

The Bassbreaker 18/30 combo features two channels (selectable through the included 1-button footswitch) aimed at delivering both Fender’s Blackface and Brownface sounds (channel one with a 30W output, channel two in “only” 18W). It is equipped with four EL84 power tubes and two 12AX7 preamp tubes and two 12” 8-ohm Celestion V-Type speakers.

MSRP: $849.99

The single-channel Bassbreaker 45 head and combo offer 45W of power generated through three 12AX7 preamp tubes and two EL34 power tubes. They feature three inputs for “channel jumping” and a variable output knob allowing to go from one to 45 watts. Additionally, the combo version features two 12” 8-ohm Celestion® V-type speakers.

MSRP: $899.99 (head)/$999.99 (combo).

Finally, the series is completed with two enclosures, the aptly-named BB-112 and BB212 (which, as you may have guessed, are respectively 1×12" and 2×12" cabinets). Both are said to benefit from a durable semi-closed back construction and to be compact and easy to transport.

The BB112 is a 70 watt, 8-ohm speaker cabinet equipped with a single 12”, 8-ohm Celestion V-Type speaker. It was designed to fit neatly under Bassbreaker 15 and Bassbreaker 007 head and combo amplifiers.

MSRP: $249.99

MSRP: $349.99
