Fender Bassman 100

Discussion in 'Amps and Cabs [BG]' started by I_am_Rage, Nov 26, 2000.


  1. I went to some Sam Ash and Guitar Center yesterday and i was looking at some amps (christmas is close)and i tryed Ampeg Ba-115 and Fender Bassman 100. Now i was looking forward to try out the Ampeg because i always hear good things about it. So at guitar center, they didn't have it on the floor so they went down the block to the warehouse that took like a half hour when they said it would take 10 min. Anyways, they got it took it out straight from the box and I started to play with it. It sounded good. Then as i raised the volume i noticed it made hissing noise. That pissed me off and right there i was really turned off. Earlier i tryed the fender 100 and it sounded louder then the ampeg and i didn't hear a hiss sound. So right now i am going for the Fender. So what does everyone think about this amp...anyone have problems with it?

    Rage, this is a fairly new amp, and while I have heard good things about the new Bassman series, I doubt that many on the board have tried it out, because until this series came out Fender has not had a very good rep for their bass amps in many years.

    You might do a search, Gard did a review on the larger Bassman 400 and like it a lot, he almost bought it he liked it so much.
