    I think they have only been shipping for a a few days. Last week, MF and the like were not shipping, but they now show in stock.

    I would love to try one of these. I have a little 150 Bassman that just love. I'm sure these are just a lot more and better of that kind of vibe.

    I was very interested until I read that the TB-600C combo is 102lbs!!!!!

    Why the hell is it that heavy. I might as well drag my SVT and 4x10 to rehearsal!

    The wave of future/past makes landfall: as bass amps finally get small, light, powerful, and with the tone that can replace tubes, huge, heavy tube amps and 2x15 cabs will become boutique vogue.

    Maybe the roadie union threatened action... ;)

    Just the head specs at 48 pounds. I'm not sure why it is so heavy, but it is. I have a TF-550B that is nowhere near that heavy. My Eden wasn't that heavy either.
  6. these are hybrids arent they? blah, idk they do sound better that ss, but not a good as ALL TUBE, still ill have to try them out for sure due to my unwavering respect to fender

    Looks like TB-1200 is still based off the old Sunn 1200S design. I like the footswitch though.

    Since Fender already owns SWR and Genz-Benz, why are they bothering with new Fender brand bass amps? Is there a signature Fender bass amp sound they're trying to capture that I'm unaware of?

    The Fender TBP-1 preamp gets a lot of love around here- people say it's one of the fattest, warmest, tubiest voicings you can hope for, alongside classics like the Alembic F1-X. So yes, there is a "Fender sound" that is very different from the SWR and GB sounds. If the 600W head wasn't 48 lbs, I'd totally be all over it.

    I really wish I had the need for one of these. If I was to get a dedicated preamp for recording DI, I think it would be the TBP-1. It's all that. I'm not a fan of the Fender tone stack for bass, but in the TBP-1's case I would make an exception. But I think I'm done buying amps for a while. I have enough to do everything I want to do, so why buy more? Because it's there?

    Well, yeah!
