According to Fender, this 800-watt amplifier is built for bass players who want “old-school vintage vibe and high-tech modern tones” in one unfussy package.

Besides its lightweight structure, the amp features a switchable overdrive circuit, a four-band EQ and three-button tone voicing. The brand says the overdrive circuit is designed for “gritty, aggressive, incredibly rich and satisfying overdriven tone”. The voicing options are as follows:

  • Bright: High-end scoop
  • Contour: Mids scoop
  • Vintage: Tube amp sounds

Apart from these features, the amp also has an FX loop, XLR Line Out, stereo aux input and stereo headphone output.

Retails at $599.99.
