The Bassman 500 combines Fender’s world-standard "blackface" tube preamp with a lightweight 500 watt Class D power amp. Its dual-channel design uses modern technology to maximize classic technology, with classic Fender '60s "blackface" styling and a wealth of innovative features on the front and rear panels. A vintage channel that delivers the full, warm sound of classic Fender amps with passive tone stack and an overdrive channel that delivers the aggressive and responsive sound of a modern active tone stack (choose between channels with included footswitch). The Bassman 500 mates perfectly with Bassman Pro Series Neo speaker cabinets and Rumble V3 410/115 cabinets.

Fender Bassman 500 Head Features:

  • Deep/bright pull switches: For even greater tonal definition, this powerful bass head’s two “bass” control knobs double as“deep” pull switches that emphasize the low end with pronounced power and clarity, while the two “treble” control knobs double as “bright” pull switches that emphasize the high end with singing brilliance.
  • XLR line output: For easy compatibility with external stage and studio performance and recording systems, this pro bass head features a rear-panel XLR line output with level control knob, ground liftswitch and pre/post EQ switch.
