I just picked up one of the newer Fender Bassman 150 1x12. 150 watts. I must say it is a nice little unit. Right off the bat I noticed the famous Fender warmth. Plenty of power for practicing and small gigging. Nice thump from the 12" speaker. It seems to be built well with no comparison to the cheaper Rumble series, or even the previous Bassman Combo series with the black face. This unit blows em both away. This is nice quality with the aluminum face lookng great, like the Pro series. Plenty of tone variations, and the compression is nice. i can sell my Digitech bass squeeze now, and plug straight in. And wow! no rattling from the chassis! I can't say enough about the nice sound. It sounds high end, not cheap. Warm, thumpy, full and bigger than you would think a 12" sounds. It rattles my walls just like the 15" combos did. The only quirk is the cd input. When I plug in the headphones it mutes the bass signal from the speaker, but the cd still feeds through the speaker. I called Fender already about this and they said it was one of those quirky things they didn't work out. Was I fed a line of bull? Even on the cheaper models the cd gets cut from the speaker. I'm gonna call them again and ask again. I love the amp so far!
