Hey everybody, New*** here. My brother just gave me this amp, its a Fender Bassman if you can't tell by the pictures, made in 1959 is what I think he said. Im movin on in to the bass world from the guitar and know just about nothing on bass amps. Any input is greatly appreciated.

I think you need to stop caring what people think about it. I stayed home all day today and masturbated like 5 times. Fucking blast.

Be sure to be able to recite at least one Shakespeare quote before and after each song.

Out loud, or in your head, it's up to you.

TS, go post this in the guitar accessories forum or whatever it's called and see what they say

There is a downside to it kind of though: only one volume knob.

Not made in 1959, it's a SF.

It's an ok amp, really more of a guitar amp than bass amp, has pretty good sounding clean tones but I think it sounds terrible when cranked full out.

SF = silver face. The Bassmans are usually identified as either "Blackface" or "silverface".

My guitarist in my new blues group would kill for that head.

its f**kin horrible, i think you should give it to me to save yourself from it's horribleness. but seriously, it's an awesome amp.

I was thinking the same thing. Awesome head and cab (but for guitar) sell the cab and get yourself a nice cab made for bass.
