    Perfect condition, priced to sell! Shipped to the lower 48: $650!


    From Frenzel site:

    Overview

    The FRENZEL "Mini Bassman" was "INSPIRED" by one of the greatest Bass - Guitar amps ever built ... the Fender 5F6A Bassman – 40 watts of audio dynamite on a small chasiss loaded with features not available in the original Bassman ... including a Plexi preamp for the M channel. Smooth warm Fender blues and jazz tones out of the F channel or super soaring dynamic rock leads on the M channel.

    Standard Features

    Input Jacks isolated from chassis for low noise, eddy currents, and hum.

    DC on preamp and driver filaments for low noise and hum.

Star ground system to reduce induced current chassis noise

    F and M inputs with separate Gains drive a common Tone Stack and Master control. F Input voiced for the vintage smooth Fender 5F6A Bassman deep, rich, warm tones. M Input voiced for the great Marshall Plexi high - mid tones .... or you can use an AB-Y switch and create your own distinct tones.



    Classic vintage 3-BAND TONE STACK for extended flexibility in shaping your tone. DEEP switch on Bass control. BRIGHT Switches on Gain Controls. MASTER level control so you can crank the GAIN's up and overdrive the preamp without overdriving the output tubes.

    Classic Type Bassman/JTM45 Style Presence control active on both channels. Unique NNFB "Edge" switch on the PRESENCE control that transforms the power amp section into a No-Negative-FeedBack style amp for more open, less compressed tones.

    Class AB fixed biased matched pair of 6L6GC's in the output for fantastic headroom ... and smooth blues saturation sounds.

    Custom output transformer for extended lows down to 20 hz. ... plus 4 - 8 - 16 ohm speaker outputs.

    Custom amp head covered in “blonde” tolex (not the stock “cage”) -- $250 upgrade; comes with easy carry Fender style strap handle. 



    Internal chassis dimensions: 12"W X 8"H X 8"D



    Power Output : 40 watts

    *** NEW FEATURE - POWER ATTENUATOR - Built-in passive power attenuator provides three power levels. 1/4 - 1/2 - FULL power.

    Speaker Impedance Selector 4 - 8 - 16 ohms

    UPGRADED EFFECTS LOOP - pure tube buffered serial effects loop designed to perfectly match the low impedance solid-state pedal levels with high impedance tube levels.

    5AR4 rectifier for optimum pick attack and sag...or you can use 5U4, GZ34 or Solid State Plug-In for different amounts of sag.

    Primary Power Transformer Fuse

    Standard IEC plug-in three prong grounded power cord. STANDBY switch to turn off the high voltage during warm-up.

    Rock solid point-to-point hand wiring using only the best of parts...low noise tubular polypropylenes caps, metal film resistors, Micalex sockets, Neutrik jacks ... etc.

    Sweet vintage clean to classic overdrive tones with three different types of distortion depending on whether you are overdriving the preamp, output, or both!

    Tube complement: 3 - 12AX7, 2 - 6L6GC, 1 - 5AR4 but you can substitute 12AT7's or 12AX7's in the preamp and driver for different tones and and less preamp overdrive. You can also substitute 5881's, KT66's, KT88's, 6550's.

    Update: I forgot to remove a feature from the web site's specs - sorry!
    This amp has the added effects loop, but the line out system was removed. [The ad is fixed.]

    Rec'd a request for total size and weight, so I'll post that today! Thanks for looking!

    Cab dimensions: 13.5" L x 10" H x 9.5" D.

    [Can't weigh it with my kitchen/food scale! Jim's weight online with the metal cage cab is 16 lbs. Pretty small and easy to carry!]
