FENDER ANNOUNCES TONE MASTER ‘59 BASSMAN AMP

Fender has grown its amp range by announcing a Tweed Tone Master model, the ‘59 Bassman. The Tone Master ’59 Bassman amplifier uses massive digital processing power to achieve a single remarkable feat: faithfully modeling the circuitry and 45-watt power output of an original Bassman tube amp. Using a high-performance class D power amp to achieve the headroom and dynamics of the tube amp, the result is pure Bassman tone that’s virtually indistinguishable from the original.

This remarkable Fender technology is paired with the sparkle and touch sensitivity of four Jensen® P-10R speakers, as well as player-centric additions like convolution spring reverb, a vintage/tight switch for smoother bass response and a post-power amp effects loop. Other features include an output power selector for full power and five attenuated settings, impulse response (IR) XLR line output for detailed cabinet simulations, mute switch, and lightweight pine cabinet.

Tone Master ‘59 Basman  ($1,499.99 USD, £1,429.00 GBP, €1,649.00 EUR, $2,499.00 AUD, ¥ 220,000 JPY)
