Does the Fender Bassman 500/800 get the Fender TBP-1 Tone?

    Just curious, and I think the answer is ‘yes’, but does the Bassman 500/800 head get the same tone as the TBP-1 pre? I’m thinking the weight and size of the Bassman would be easier to schlep than the TBP-1 in a head case with a power amp.

    I’d like to know this too about the tone. Been looking for a new amp recently, and the Bassman 500 (used) and a Fender TB-600 and an older Bassman 1200 are in my price range. Not familiar with any of them. And have to sell my amp before making a purchase. But I’m interested in the tones of these amps as well as the overdrive section of each.
