'68 Fender Bassman (Black-line Drip-edge)

'68 Bassman
Pros: Beautiful cleans and smooth O/D.
Cons: 50 watts, heavy, not a combo so it's not a great gig amp.
I've owned a BF Super Reverb and BF Bandmaster as well as this Bassman. As fantastic as the SR and BM are, the Bassman is just nicer. This is a result of the circuit design, it is unique in the Fender lineup.

The Bassman has beautiful cleans, typical of BF Fenders, which makes it a great pedal platform. But the O/D is just glorious! When you crank it up it has the most beautiful smooth O/D that just growls and snarls. It's a somewhat unique O/D, it more gnarly compression than ratty distortion.
