The Bassman 500 combines Fender’s world-standard Blackface™ tube preamp with a lightweight 500 watt Class D power amp. It uses modern technology to maximize vintage vibe, with Fender '60s Blackface™ styling and a wealth of innovative features on the front and rear panels. Its dual-channel design features a vintage channel that delivers the full, warm sound of classic Fender amps with a passive tone stack and an overdrive channel that delivers the aggressive and responsive sound of a modern active tone stack (choose between channels with included footswitch). The Bassman 500 mates perfectly with Bassman Pro Series Neo speaker cabinets and Rumble V3 410/115 cabinets.
