    I'm planning to buy a Fender Bassman 135 with a Fender Pyramid 4x12 cab (celestion speakers).
    What's your opinion about it? Is it a good cab with this amp?

    I have always found Celestion bass speakers to sound better on paper than in real life. YMMV

    keep in mind that Pyramid Fenders are VERY middle-sounding.

    I always prefered the Bassman 100 over 135, which is kind of sterile sounding IME.

    I had the Bassman 135. Fantastic sounding amp. Think you could get a better cabinet. Could you just buy the amp? It is an excellent pairing with 15's.

    I had the old tube Bassman 100 with the same cab. The cab was the weak link in the tone chain for sure.

    I had a Bassman 100 silverface, loved it. I have played through 135s, good amps too.
    I'll echo what others have said, the cab is geared for guitar and while it can sound pretty good at low levels, if you want to go deep and/or loud it will not perform well.
