OVERVIEW

Great for the stage and the studio with multiple power options from Fender.

The powerful, innovative and versatile Bassman 100T 100W tube bass amp head is perfect for the stage and the studio alike. The Bassman 100T is a professional-level 100-watt tube head with enormous Fender bass sound and sparkling vintage Fender looks. Its dual-channel design uses modern technology to maximize classic technology, with classic Fender late-’60s/early-’70s “blackface” styling and a wealth of innovative features on the front and rear panels.
The Bassman 100T's features include a tube preamp (two 12AX7s) and power amp (one 12AT7 and four 6L6s) with a vintage channel that delivers the full, warm sound of a classic Fender passive tone stack and overdrive channel that delivers the aggressive and responsive sound of a modern active tone stack. Your tubes will never lose power at a show again with the rear-panel Fender Automatic Bias system that constantly monitors and re-biases tubes for perfect performance and alerts you when service is required is a must have for every gigging musician. The XLR output that delivers overdriven power amp tone which is great for recording. A rear-panel output power switch lets you play or record at full 100-watt power, quieter 25-watt power, or silently via internal power soak which captures the signal post-power amp. With an impedance switch (8, 4 or 2 ohms) and master volume with push/pull mute you get to control everything on the 100T down to the "T".

    Comments about Fender Bassman Pro 100T 100W Tube Bass Amp Head:

    Visually, the amp is very sleek and classy-looking. Structurally, it's very solidly-built, with no rattling parts of any kind. I plugged mine into a 4ohm 4x10 Fender Rumble Cabinet (the previous iteration, not the newer 8ohm V3 version), and started working the dials.

    First of all, it is worth noting that you should start the Vintage Channel EQ at Fender's classic flat setting, where the Bass and Treble controls are both at 1, and the Mid at 10. That's a good starting point from which you can boost and cut to taste. My only modification to that setting was to activate the "Deep" circuit by pulling up the Bass pot to boost the low end and mellow the midrange a little. I also set the Channel Volume control at "10", and used the Master Volume to keep me at bedroom playing level. Playing a Fender Precision Bass Special with P/J pickups, I got a warm, vintage tone with just the right amount of Midrange to cut through the mix. Think late 60's/early 70's stuff. Rolling the tone dial back on my bass gave me a really nice Motown vibe.

    Switching to the Overdrive channel, again I set my Gain and Channel Volume at 10, while still controlling my output with the Master control. I left the Blend control at 1, and started with the EQ flat at 6 across the board. From there, I pulled up the Bass pot to activate the Deep circuit, set the Mid sweep at 5, with the level set at 7, and boosted the Treble control to 8. This gave me a punchy, modern, semi-scooped tone which, at band practice, allowed me to fully support the low end and allow the guitars to occupy most of the mid space. For a little more overdrive grit, I simply boosted the Blend control by one notch. Really, really nice stuff.

    Overall, I am very pleased with the amp. It's rugged, looks professional and sounds great! Plus, it held its own VERY well against two loud guitarists and an equally loud drummer. At one point, with my volume set at just under 5, I was actually too loud. If you're trying to decide between this or something louder, give some serious thought to the venues in which you expect to play. For most of us, my gut says this amp will provide more than enough power - especially with PA support.

    My ONLY real complaint about this amp is the "Dogbone" carry handle that Fender uses. DO NOT, I REPEAT, DO NOT try to carry this amp by that handle alone. It is cheap and will likely break under the amp's weight if you use it for too long. If you do some research on these Dogbone handles, you will find may other people have found this out the hard way. When carrying the amp, always use the spring-loaded side handles. Cheap carry handle aside, this is a very nice amp that's worth considering.

    Lastly, I also wanted to mention that I have not had any of the tube-biasing issues described in other reviews. My amp has been a solid performer from day one.

    Comments about Fender Bassman Pro 100T 100W Tube Bass Amp Head:

    This amp sounds amazing. The problem is the auto tube bias technology just isn't there yet, at least not from Fender. I was experiencing multiple tube failures on tubes 2A and B after only three months of use, probably 35-40 hours playing time. I tried replacing them with brand new tubes and that section is still failing.

    I've purchased the extended warranty but am dismayed that I'll be without an amp for an extended time while I'm in the process of recording. If I could return this amp I would, but I'm not certain what I'd get.

        Comments about Fender Bassman Pro 100T 100W Tube Bass Amp Head:

        Wow....great tone. Hard lo find a bad, non-musical tone from this head. Plenty of volume for a larger bar/club. Surprisingly loud for 100w. Fender hit it out of the park with the 100T. Buy it.
