    And the price didn't really go up too much with the recent Fender price hike. I have had mine for a year now and totally love it. With the horn at full it really has a very full frequency spectrum response. It's quite transparent, so if you like the sound of your INSTRUMENT or pedals or whatever, this is a great amp. If you need an amp to color the sound of your instrument it might not be the best choice for you. This may be the issue another reviewer was having with their active electronics bass.I have found that the preamp clips fairly early on this thing, I never have the Volume knob more than halfway up with the -6db engaged or it'll give me that little red light. The power amp (Master level) has never clipped on me and I have managed to get pictures to fall off the wall in my home with this thing.Delivers really great sub-bass sounds that carry, although I really wish this model had a knob control for the horn instead of just the switch.only a 4/5 for features for that high frequency horn switch, I could do with a reverb knob, and the effects loop doesn't get along with many digital pedals like my delays. I have to run everything in front. Those three things aside this has all you need in it.I have not tried the Line Out, but I'm afraid that it would lose the quality of the high frequency horn that I like so much about this amp.It makes a really nice guitar amp for great cleans - again, if you really like the sound of what is in front of the amp, as it's quite transparent sounding.

    This Fender Bassman 150 sounds good, if you have the cone turned off and are working with a quality passive bass. The Fender Bassman 150 just can't handle an active pre-amp system. There is a constant buzz makes you think it's a ground problem with your bass. Then you find out it's not. The Bassman also gives off a nice fender smell if you play it for more then an hour Don't push her. What I like- controls are right there easy access. Nice line out jack. It has that nice monitor feel for those that use a sansamp with it,

    Just leave it at the shop

    I've had 2 of these and they really need to invest an extra nickel for good pots. My first one was in the shop TWICE for the master volume pot. My second one is goin in for the THIRD time for the same issue. Totaly undependable....Nothin more onnoying than havin to turn around each song to smack it on the sweet spot.

    School Spent money on something good for once

    By Ainu_Antalai

    from Okinawa, JP

    When my teacher asked me to play the bass guitar in the school band I was kind of iffy, I'm not exactly the whole 'band geek' image..but my love for music made me come around. When I saw this amp I was surprised. Not only did the amp look pretty nice for something at school, but when I plugged it in and turned it up it was amazing! The quality is really nice and it's not so loud that the frequency makes your ears bleed. I was happy to see the school invest in something that actually exceeded my expectations. Sadly, i don't think I can get my parents to buy this for me, but to those considering it, you wont regret it. It's especially good for recording-featuring its own line out level so you can still concentrate on your music. It does require a mic chord in order to record however, so if you are absent one of those and recording is your intention with this amp, you should order one of those as well.

    Good for all around

    By Andy-yJOO2

    from milwaukee, WI

    I've used this amp for a ton of gigs during the past year.For a crowd of 200 people, it gets the job done very nicely. It's a very good amp for a beginner bassist. It has a very good tonal range and it can get a beautiful slap tone as well as that upright class. This amp also sounds fantastic recorded in the studio. for a small jazz band, a school band, this amp would be perfect. For the gigging musician who regularly sees crowds of 800, more power is definitely needed. On many gigs i find myself maxing out all the knobs and still not getting enough power. The very nice thing about this amp is there is very little buzz at extremely high volumes - unless the treble is turned way up. This amp will give you a beautiful, rich, and warm tone; it's a great buy and highly recommended

    Great Amp with no danger of back problems

    By Anonymous

    from Undisclosed

    A friend of mine recently bought this amp with a bass that he bought. I am his bass teacher and let me tell you I love playing through this amp. We don't turn it up past halfway and it sounds like its cranked. One of the first times I played through it I was blown away at how much volume and punch it packed. I just had to find out how heavy it was. I picked it up and noticed that it was lighter then a lot of other amps that I've played through in my years of playing. If the amp that I am using now ever quits working theres a good chance that I'll by this amp.

    Great step up...

    By Anonymous

    Well I just joined a band not to long ago,and used a fender rumble 15,and had to play out of the PA because it wasn't loud enough. Then I got my Bassman 150, and I love it . This amp is such a great step up from my rumle fifteen. Nothing has gone wrong at all. I think its a high quality amp for anyone who is serious about playing bass guitar. You will be pleased with your purchase.

    By Bassman-4hd0Q

    Great sound, great price, great volume. A great amp, especially since it's so easy to transport.Sounds perfect through the PA. Nice tilt back feature for stage monitoring.Buy it.

    Great amp for the money!

    This amp is hands down the best in its price range. I tried many of the other amps in its price range such as ampeg, line 6, and GK. They were all great in their own respect, but the bassman 150 had the most usable features like compressor and parametric eq, and the tone didnt distort or get muddied up when you crank up the volume. This amp is very lowd and can hold its own in a band with a loud drummer. Sounds great with my passive jazz bass and have yet to try it with an active bass. This amp is awsome...get it!

    more than I bargained for

    By DC Mac

    from Florida

    I bought this little amp to cover a small jazz room gig we picked up...Turns out this little monster is ballsy enough to cover the bigger club gigs too; with its line out XLR output on the front it can be very easily run into the PA, and the amp itself can be faced back at you as a monitor. It's a remarkable little creature and worth every buck!
