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,

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!

Just leave it at the shop

By Never again fender owner

from A Sad Place

See all my reviews

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.

wow

By Thumper-mhY4k

This amp can get you amazing tones, especially if you work the controls right. I only use fretless basses, and this amp really brings out that fretless growl I normally would only expect from high dollar rigs. It's also built like a tank. Good Job Fender!

Great Value

By Texan-PCUR4

from the South

See all my reviews

I bought this amp to learn bass. Never learned and actually sold my bass guitar, but I hesitated to sell the amp because I like it so much. I play my acoustic guitars through it and it sounds better than my Genz Benz Shenendoah 200W acoustic amp. I'm not proud of that fact, having wasted all the money on a good acoustic amp. The Bassman 150 is something special. Great sound, super quiet operation, loaded with features. And when I WAS learning bass, I was impressed with the low end response, lack of distortion at higher volume, and again quiet operation. You can't go wrong with the Bassman series from Fender. I think people know this, because they're always sold out at my local Guitar Center. Go for it, you won't be disappointed.

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.

Fantastic small amp

By Grin98

from Chicagoland

Easily the best-sounding small amp available for the money. Fender seems to have finally learned a few things about making quality bass amps from SWR - rich tone, no distortion, no rattles. I've had many comments about the amp sounding much bigger than it is.

TONE, TONE, TONE!

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

This amp has amazing tone and clarity the Eminence speaker is worth the righteous bucks! The only thing I can possibly complain about is there is a part number for the amp cover but can't find one anywhere. Not even Fender.com, but I'm sure it's in the works.

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

Portable and Powerful!

By BadAndySound

from Muskegon, MI

I have owned my Bassman 150 for just over a year, and have truly fallen in love with it. Before owning this combo, I lugged a Peavey T-Max,an SWR 2X10 and a Hartke 1X15 cabinets, along with a Boss ME 50B effect pedal to have a decent sound and necessary volume, but, since purchasing my bassman 150, all of that has gotten dusty. The Bassman 150 combo is totally loud enough by itself for smaller, indoor gigs, and by utilizing the DI box like line out into a PA, it could rock Rockefeller Hall and still sound smooth and phat. My bass sounds exactly like I want it to, without all kinds of extra effects or any of that other stuff, and the thing buckles into my truck's front seat like the baby it is to me. If you like simplicity, buy this amp, or its bigger brother, the 250w 115 or 210. (I've used a friends 115, its sounds as good, but louder!) No really, this ROCKS!!

Amazing tone

By J-Town

from Florida

This amp really brings out the true tone in your bass. The features are pretty sweet to. No distortion at full power and ridiculous low end. My only complaint is that it lacks volume in the sense I have to compete with a Marshall stack and some pearls the whole time. Tilt on the amp is also a sweet feature.

Great amp for the money!

By this is the one!!!

from N/A

See all my reviews

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!

Great Bass Amp!

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

I've owned my Fender Bassman 150 amp for about 6 months and I have to say it's probably one of the best bass amps I've ever owned! The power and tone are great! But the portability is what really sold me! It's tilt back cab with it's line level volume control for the P.A. are great and very handy features. I highly recommend this bass amp!Fender quality never disappoints!

Good amp!

By ManipularSilver

from Ontario

I've recently purchased this amp in hope that it would give me that little extra punch that my old Fender Frontman 25B wouldn't while playing with other people. This one for sure gives that extra punch, it's loud, has many options and is possible of downing out other instrument with barely any static or feedback, I would definitely recomment it to any bassist out there!

It's really good

By FenderBassMan 150

from Berlin,NJ

The Fender BassMan is a very fine piece of equipment. My was perfect and as long as you take care of yours, it should be fine. It has a variety of "Knobs and Dials". The only think I dislike is on mine the power LED went out in a day.

Great

By V. Lester

from Princeton,WV & nashville,Tennessee

I own each of the Fender bassman 150 & 250. Both of these amps have performed well on tours, concerts, & practices. No problems yet with these amps. They really put out some low end bass to handle 5-6 string basses that I use on the road. Direct ouputs & Inputs. No complaints here.
