Fanou83's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" best of the best. a legend"

Fender Bassman 50 (Silverface)
50w tube
Volume, treble, bass, for each channel (there are two) hard to easy
2 bass inputs jack, 2 jack inputs for guitar
Switching to one side deep bass
Switching a bright side to the guitar
No effect


Manuel??? This is an old model of 1973, branch, they put on Switching on, we expect few minute it's hot, the other is on Switching
We turn it up the bass and treble to 5/10 and it's gone.

For my part, playing finger, I can go up to 4/10 in repeated
The colleague whom I bought it and played mediator rarely exceed 2/10.

It accepts very well the pedals.


I play mainly rock
I lespaul essentially a branch with ibanez TS9 to dr distordo of line6, and a boost for solos. What else?
For her, it's old fender, clear, bassman but requires a little'' coated''
The low medium very well spring is round
I repeated a bit but it agrees very well any pedal
The sound of the guitars are also broadcast (I tried with strat and tele)


Bought for two months in Cygnus. I did make a custom cab town on tube
Before, I had a line 6 Flextone 3, the day and night.

Probably my best purchase of my musical past five years

Fender Bassman 50 (Silverface)
Well that dear home fender bassman short version (it is smaller than a bassman 100) possesses tube preamplifier and amplifier (6 total) to 50 watts of power, it seems little, but it's just "seem "it's been pasque quite frankly we should have 3 to 100 db volume. (I laugh it is not something like that). is standard. Unfortunately, the connection is very simple (silent faithful to it in 69, when my bassman (serial is supported)), ie, 2 in (I do not know pourqwa, it must be signal stronger or weaker) in the channel bass, 3 knobs (vol, bass and TREB) and a switch normal / deep. Channel instrument (it is in this that I connect my guitar) has exactly the same but the rglages switch is called bright / normal. no loop, no footswitch, just one output and an output ext (a use that property seized by the ARO, at worst, it breaks in two volumes).


The config could not be more simple, frankly if there is one that includes not ...
the sound is direct, you branch your sound terrible, hot, bright, absolutely vintage that you die ca. Beyond that you can customize your sound with a little eq and the switch, it changes a lot but the tone remains bassman is undeniable. the manual does not exist.


This is typically one of the most beautiful clean sound that I had. In addition, he strong enough to slap a 50 Watts. Strong and warm. So, ca ca door and not break the ears (not as a frontman has pushed 15 of 110 flight if you follow me). from a volume of 3.2 s'entamme a slight overdrive and enough blues to the 5, the lower its full overdrive, sixties rock way ... I'm on a Fender Toronado double hambuckers, ca may not sound like a different scratch, but on a stratocaster is even better, the stratum has more rponse bassman and makes them good. Only downside, the switch in position breath bright enough ... it was good something for nothing.
2010 EDIT: I switched to a different set up but I keep plugging the output of my wet Whammy. Impossible to leave this little beast in my set up. ;)


I use it for several months and it is not my first amp Obviously, I'm kb that are no adjustments to make, it sounds live is amazing. never seen it (not even a hot rod that can be loud sometimes) ... I paid 400 euros and I regret it, I never sell it.

EDIT 2010: A few years later, I like it much.

Fender Bassman 50 (Silverface)
All-tube amp head: + 2X6L6 4X12AX7
50 Watts
2X 2 between bass and guitar
Channel 1 Volume, treble, bass. Channel 2 volume, treble, bass


Setup could not be more simple
The sound in all rglage (a rgal)


This head fits all styles of music with of course the pedals that come with it (Rock & roll, pop, reggae, funk, blues, jazz, contry, rock, hard, mtal, Varita ...)
All types of sounds can be obtained: crystal clear, crisp, veulouts, dynamic balance, fat ...
They are all good (good pedals and good will with baffle)


For over 10 years
I like its versatility
I had no amp biensur (Marshall, Mesa Boogie, Laney, Hughes & Ketner, Hiwatt, Orange ...)
Surp report quality price, investment in the TRS long-term (it will still NEWS APRS 2438 AD)
I do it again this choice for its weight, power, and of course for his ...

shuffleking's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

Fender Bassman 50 (Silverface)
Tube amp out 70 watts into 4 ohms running with 2 6L6 power.
2 entry for channel bass and 2 entry for the normal channel.
Simplicime settings on each channel: volume, bass, treble. There is also a master general.
No effects, just good sound good roots ...


There is not as simple amp. Even a bassist can use it!
Joking aside, when plugging his bass on it (a U.S. jazz bass in my case) was immediately warm and round sound. With the guitar is the same. The treble and bass knobs are still effective but rarely admit use it.


I play rythm'n'blues and soul and this amp really sound.
Below 5 volume and 5 master sound is round and accurate at the time, the volume is generally correct but should not play with a drummer lumberjack. This works well in small clubs and when you do jazz.
When it exceeds half the volume and master it gets really interresting.
The sound is increasingly grotty but without being disagreeable. It is a beautiful natural distortion that fits perfectly on bass. Me love!


I use this amp for 5 years and he walks in his 40 years Malagasy hair.
I advise all scratch but mostly because all the bass slightly distorted bass sound that comes out of this amp when you tease him a little is dropped.
However one small problem: I take another amp when I play on stage or outdoors because it is a fair bit in power. That's what gives it its charm because it attacks the lamps without a volume inanaudible.
I would do without hesitation that choice and I advice to all those who play in small places and who want big sound fat.
