Brought my fender duo 10 about 4 years ago and absolutely hated it until i read the how to drive it instructions. I can plug now plug any bass into this amp and make it sound great. The tone is warm and fat and i love it to bits. my four and 5 string basses both suit this amp. It looks great on stage, Other bass players and guitarists have said, I knew it was you playing by the tone of that amp. Im glad you cant buy these anymore. I got a classic that will appreciate as time goes on.
- Was this a gift?:
I've been a bar band bass player for 20 years and always played an American Fender Jazz bass through a Crate 200XL head with a Marshall 15" - It was a bit muddy, but lets face it it did the job for blues and rock. However, I always loved the sound a rival band's bass player got through is vintage Sun tube amp.
Fast forward 20 years, I have a job and the ability to upgrade - the Bassman Duo seemed to fit the bill. I wanted that vitage sound...and to get rid of the muddy bottom end. I didn't try the 15, but two tens made sense to clear up my bottom, so I pulled the trigger - man am I GLAD I DID! It gets the perfect sound out of my Jazz and even mellows out my Sterling by Musicman Ray34 enough to play motown and jazz.
If I work the dials well enough of my Roland Cube I can get close to the sound - but when I plug in my Bassman duo...wow, perfect warm, beautiful. I would say this is not a great amp for slap bass, but works great for classic rock, jazz, motown, and 70's funk.
Although I got a great deal, being that it isn't completely versitile, it is a little on the pricey side...but I'm happy with it!
Overall funtionality of this amp is great. As a guy who plays every I like simple. With this amp you get that. To all musicians out there who play both bass and lead guitar you will never find another amp that covers all areas. Then if you factor in the cost of only having to buy one amp it pays its self off. FYI, you would be crazy not to buy this amp.
To all of those who have an interest in this amp I recomend that you take the step and purchase it. I have played SWR's, Galienkruger's, Ampeg's, Peavey's and Carvin's and never before have I gotten the bass tone that you can pull out of this simple easy to use combo amp. Now what I am fixing to say is where it gets really interesting. For all of those Telecaster pickers out there, this is a must have amp. Yes you heard me correctly. I usually play through a 65 twin reverb or a blues deluxe, but never before have I heard an amp give such a rich tele tone. Add a little compression with some delay in the back, crank the gain up to have a little break up in the tone, and you have one of the meanest amps on the market today. 999 times out of a 1000 I will always choose class A Fender for a guitar, but this amp has blown me away. I recomend that anyone who is a serious tele picker, go to your local music store, plugg in, and you wont leave the store without taking this sweet amy home.
I have owned a SVT, a 1970 Bassman, a Gallien-Krueger, and other rigs and the Bassman TV Duo Ten is the best. With my '59 Precision this thing puts out the exact tones that I want. The noise floor is super-low and with the wheels, it is easy to transport. Note it does not come with a cover so you will want to order that separately. Good job Fender!
I had to downsize to a combo. After auditioning one in a local store with my own JB, I had to have one. Most folks will like it for it's old school tone but it also loves my Rickenbacker 4003. Though not a slap machine (not my thing) it covers a Ric clank better than my Eden rig. I can also get a growly "mwah" from my Jazz Bass!No fancy features, you can't even add an extera cab. But man oh man it's as good as rigs twice its price when it comes to a pure organic tone!
