Fender’s new Bassbreaker Series takes the 45-watt 1959 Bassman design and “breaks” it with features like the early Fender block-letter logo, black tweed covering, and refined pointer knobs. The sound is one of pure and unadulterated tube greatness. This Bassbreaker 45 gets its voice from a '59 Bassman-style preamp and 45 watts from an EL34 power section. The variable-wattage knob lets you choose your power from 45 watts down to 1 watt. Many iconic British amps were based on early Fenders and with the Bassbreaker 45, you'll bridge the Atlantic with a decidedly British take on Fender tone.
