fender bassman 100


Recommended Posts

Urgent! need advice.

I posted something a week or so ago, I just bought a warwick sonic III amp @300 watts and a 410 SAd (german made) cab. Now I saw a 70s Bassman 100 Top in our local store in good condition for about 300 euros. should i give the warwick back and get the fender. I just fell in love with it and I play guitar, too, so I could use it for both. How much power is 100 watts all tube anyway. Will I be able to play in a rockband. From guitar playing I know that 100w tube is in no way comparable to 100w solid state. Please help!!! Tank you very much

Never did play a 70' Bassman. But, had a 100 watt one back in the late 60's. I'll have to be honest with you. It just wasn't enough power. I couldn't punch through the rest of the garage band I was in at all. The only Fender Bass amp that would do the trick back then was the Dual Showman. The Bassman that I had was stock with to 12's. It sounded good, there just wasn't enough there. But, that's just my opinion and feeble memory.

Good Luck,


My family "coat of arms" buckles in the back. Is that normal?
