The Fender Bassbreaker 18/30 2x12 Guitar Amplifier Combo is a two-channel dream that combines the best of both worlds. Channel one offers a 30-watt rendition of the classic Blackface Deluxe, delivering sweet bell-like clean tones with a tight and articulate response. Push this channel and you're rewarded with a warm and crunchy overdrive that is bristling with energy. Channel two's circuitry is based on Fender's 18-watt '61 Brown Deluxe, opening up a world of overdriven delights to be explored. The team at Fender have outdone themselves with the Bassbreaker series, and the 18/30 Combo is a carefully considered amp that is perfect for both the studio and the stage - a hard rocking model that is sure to blow you away.
Channel One - Legendary Blackface Deluxe Cleans
Since their inception, Fender Deluxe models have undergone subtle changes, whilst remaining true to a core philosophy of delivering exceptional tones. The Blackface models - so called due to the change to a black tolex covering - of the 1960s, delivered sparkling cleans with an impressive output power that yielded a crispy overdriven warmth when the tubes were pushed. The team behind the 18/30 Combo wanted to offer modern day players with the same classic tones, with extra headroom so that you can push this beauty without loss of signal quality to unwanted harshness or distortion.
Channel Two - Scorching '61 Brown Deluxe Overdrive
The '61 Brown Deluxe circuit is an 18-watt monster that charges with an unbridled energy, which makes it perfect for kicking out "in your face" tones that will lift you above and beyond any mix. With a pair of 12AX7 tubes in the pre-amp stage, and four EL84 power tubes waiting to be unleashed, you can rest assured that when you want to rock out, the 18/30 has your back.
Celestion V-Type Speakers
The Bassbreaker 18/30 Combo is fitted with a pair of 12-inch Celestion V-Type speakers, which are designed to offer a modern vintage sound that is balanced and suited to a wide range of musical styles. Cleans are translated with a true response across lows, mids, and highs. When a touch of overdrive is thrown into the mix, expect saturated midrange warmth with high frequency sparkle and low-end snarl, fantastic for aggressive rhythm chops and searing leads.
Sophisticated Fender Design
As we've come to expect, the understated design of the amplifier creates a cool, calm and collected aesthetic that belies the powerhouse that lies within. The cabinet has been crafted using sturdy birch ply, which is enveloped in a durable protective covering. The semi-closed back allows the cabinet to generate a thunderous low-end rumble, reinforcing a fuller-sounding output.
Footswitch and Amp Cover
The Fender Bassbreaker 18/30 2x12 Guitar Amplifier Combo comes with a 1-button footswitch included, allowing you to rapidly change between channels with ease. As well as this, a complementary amp cover is provided to keep your amp in pristine condition when not in use.
When you're taking to a larger stage, it is worth noting that the new Bassbreaker BB-212 speaker extension cabinet works perfectly with the 18/30 Combo. So whether you're recording at home or in the studio, performing an intimate gig or a festival arena, the Fender Bassbreaker 18/30 2x12 Guitar Amplifier Combo is equipped to handle any performance environment.
