I play bass guitar and I was thinking of getting the BOSS Fender Bassman pedal for my bass rig. I know alot of guitars use the actual amp its self. But I've seen a bassist plug into that in amp form. I was wondering how would it sound on bass or is it a waste of money?

What is your bass rig currently?

Don't bother with it. The Bassman pedal is designed to give a guitar the sound of a vintage Fender Tweed amp. That sparkle and singing overdrive when cranked isn't going to make your bass sound very good.

The Bassman was a fine amp and yes, it was created for electric bass. But it really was a better guitar amp than a bass amp; particularly in its original form.

I have a 61 bassman and I'm with fatal gear on this. Phenomenal guitar amp but not really anything special a bass player would want. I'm sure the pedal is just to give guitar players some vintage dirt. You might want to look into a tube preamp pedal or even a tube head if your still curious though.

I got a squire Mike Dirnt p-bass and a stagg 5 string with a line 6 lowdown 175 and I occasionaly use the BOSS metal core. I saw a bassist with a great tone using a bassman and I didn't know if I could help achive that tone with the pedal

Nope. You'd need the amp head and the cabinet, plus whatever else he had in his signal path.
