  1. Hi guys

    I am thinking of bying the new fender bassman 100W or 200W. They sound pretty good ,but limiting in adding on speakers. Any of you have one them and what do you think of them.

    Two of my friends each have a Bassman 100. The one with a 15 and a tweeter. They ain't half bad. A lot better than the older Bassman's if you ask me. The downfalls of the amp are no extension speaker jack, which has been mentioned, and no tweeter attenuator, which makes it hard to get rid of the sizzle.

    i have the bassman 100, and i love it... it can get pretty loud, and useually has no problem being heard over my band... but i'd go with the 200w version just for the extra headroom. its up to you.

  7. mopar punk, that makes 3 of us, I run a 69 camaro, blown and injected, hope to run some low 8 s this season. Those are good times you 2 guys are running.
    Russy, about the bassman amp, I had the 100 version, nice little amp for practice and such, but not enough to gig with, for me anyway. Now that I have a 410 cab, the 15 inch speaker in the bassman 100 seemed to lack some definition that I like in the 410.
    If you can save up some more bread the bassman 400 combo is a better choice in my opinion.....not that it is worth much anyway......

    I've seen the bassman 400 head for somethng like $559 in musicians friend or samash or somewhere on the net get that and a 1x12 much cheaper than $900.
