The Fender Limited Edition Bassbreaker 15 Guitar Amplifier Combo in Blonde may be small, but don't let that fool you. Punching well above its weight is what the Bassbreaker 15 does best, and you'll be amazed by the raucous energy this diminutive combo can produce. Now as part of a highly limited run, you can grab yours in a sweet blonde finish with complementary wheat grille cloth.
At the heart of the Bassbreaker 15 Blonde's circuitry you'll find a trio of 12AX7 tubes in the preamp, and a pair of EL84 tubes in the power amp, which equates to monster tones. Whether you're seeking a sweet, bright-sounding clean tone, and fancy a snarling overdrive, the Bassbreaker benefits from a healthy amount of power to guarantee the smoothest output possible. For a 15-watt amp, it can quite easily hold its own on stage. The unique three position Gain Structure endows the amp with three-distinct "boutique" voices, taking your tone from mild mannered to bad tempered in a heartbeat. Instead of overshadowing your tone, it enhances and elevates it to new heights.
Intuitive control layout
The Bassbreaker 15 presents you with a plethora of over-sized controls to choose from, including: 3-band EQ (Bass/Mid/Treble); Bright; Gain; Structure; Master; and Reverb. As noted, the amp benefits from a unique three position Gain Structure, which has a corresponding switch to engage with three different "boutique" settings. Each one is tailored towards Low/Med/High frequencies, giving you a rapid-fire way to adjust the focus of your tone. The built-in reverb is a Fender classic, allowing you to go from a subtle slap-back sound, to an all-enveloping soundscape.
Versatility as standard
The Fender Bassbreaker 15 Combo Amplifier comes with a wide range of connectivity options that make it fantastic for using in the studio or on the stage. A 1/4-inch effects loop allows you to connect your outboard effects pedals between the pre- and power- amp stages, making it as adaptable as you need it to be to accommodate your pedalboard preferences. The Bassbreaker 15 also includes a switchable speaker-emulated XLR line output with ground lift - complete with power-amp mute -, which is ideal for studio recording.
When you're performing at a gig, the Bassbreaker is perfect for small/medium/large rigs and venue sizes. There are parallel speaker outputs with a main speaker and extension speaker jack to play with. Not only that, but the impedance switch enables you to set between 4, 8, or 16 Ohms, so that it can slot into any rig setup with ease.
Celestion Greenback G12H
To ensure that the Limited Edition Bassbreaker 15 can deliver its ferocious energy to its full potential, Fender have endowed it with the Celestion Greenback G12H speaker. Coveted by many who wish to recreate the classic tones of 60s and 70s rockers, the G12H has a strong, aggressive low-end energy with punchy low-mids. Match this with its ability to slice through any mix with a powerful upper-mid attack, and top it off with a piercing high-end sparkle. If it is chunky riffs you're after, or searing solos, then you can rest assured that the Bassbreaker 15/Greenback G12H partnership has your back.
The Fender Limited Edition Bassbreaker 15 Guitar Amplifier Combo in Blonde is more than just a pretty little combo, it is an absolute tonal beast. Boasting all the features that have won so many over since the Bassbreaker series' release, the inclusion the Celestion G12H seals the deal with regard to its hard rocking pedigree. Remember though, this is a limited release so don't hang about, grab yours whilst you can.
