FENDER BASSBREAKER 15 TUBE HEAD
Fender’s Bassbreaker series puts classic tones at your fingertips, with a few twists to offer up a wider palette. The Bassbreaker 15 guitar amplifier head gets its 15 watts of Class AB from an EL84 power section, and three distinct voicings offer up clean to high-gain tones, giving you a ton of sonic territory to explore. And the Bassbreaker 15 is a stellar choice for studio work. You can push it to saturation at ear-friendly volumes or use the XLR line-out with switchable speaker emulation and power amp mute to capture true tube tones straight out of the amp. The Bassbreaker 15 is a classic Fender with a British twist.
Wattage that wants to be cranked
Fifteen watts is often the perfect amount of power. At small live gigs, you can crank it up and not overpower the rest of the band. In the studio, it’s low powered enough to get the power section really cooking, giving you amazing breakup and feel. Whenever your power tubes are working that hard, it adds a level of touch sensitivity to your amp’s performance .
There’s nothing quite like the pure, powerful sound of a Fender tube amplifier. The tonal richness and touch-sensitive dynamics of real tubes have given Fender amps an unmistakable voice for more than 60 years—defining the sound of musical recordings and performances you’ve heard your whole life.
This amp is equipped with a “Structure” switch that offers three distinct settings for tight, “boutique”-like clean and overdriven tones.
