With an eye to the past while still looking forward, Fender's Bassbreaker series puts classic tones at your fingertips, with a few twists to offer up a wider palette. The Bassbreaker 15 guitar amplifier head gets its 15 watts of Class AB from an EL84 power section, and three distinct voicings offer up clean to high-gain tones, giving you a ton of sonic territory to explore. And the Bassbreaker 15 is a stellar choice for studio work. You can push it to saturation at ear-friendly volumes or use the XLR line-out with switchable speaker emulation and power amp mute to capture true tube tones straight out of the amp. The Bassbreaker 15 is a classic Fender with a British twist.

      Crossing the pond

      Many iconic British amps were based on early Fenders, so it's fitting that the Bassbreaker 15 harkens back to these classic designs. The Bassbreaker 15's EL84-based, Class AB power section is the secret to crossing the American/British sound barriers. When cranked, it exudes full-bodied Class AB style with harmonically rich EL84 tones.

      Wattage that wants to be cranked

      Fifteen watts is often the perfect amount of power. At small live gigs, you can crank it up and not overpower the rest of the band. In the studio, it's low powered enough to get the power section really cooking, giving you amazing breakup and feel. Whenever your power tubes are working that hard, it adds a level of touch sensitivity to your amp's performance - and Music Experience guitarists know that's often difficult to attain at a reasonable volume.

      Onboard extras

      Fender added a 3-way Gain Structure Switch that gives the Bassbreaker 15 three boutique voices. Each voice has more gain than the one before, in essence giving you three amplifiers in one. And the XLR output carries a selectable speaker simulator for direct recording or performing. You can also mute the power section to get recording tones in an apartment without waking the neighbors. And the digital reverb adds the ambience you need.

      What Fender Says...

      Supercharged and hosting a plethora of powerful, flexible features, the Bassbreaker 15 Head is the newest evolution of the classic Fender Bassman® sound. The redesigned circuitry breaks the mold, adding three different flavors of breakup—the satisfying sound of pushed tubes that heralded the dawn of hard rock. Onstage or in the studio, this top-notch performer is full of raw, rocking tone.

      Tube Circuitry

      There’s nothing quite like the pure, powerful sound of a Fender tube amplifier. The tonal richness and touch-sensitive dynamics of real tubes have given Fender amps an unmistakable voice for more than 60 years—defining the sound of musical recordings and performances you’ve heard your whole life.

      "Structure" Switch

      This amp is equipped with a "Structure" switch that offers three distinct settings for tight, "boutique"-like clean and overdriven tones.

      Effects Loop

      Use the effects loop to place outboard effects precisely in the signal chain via ¼" preamp output and power amp input jacks.
