Supercharged with a plethora of flexible features, the Bassbreaker 15 is a top-notch performer for stage or studio. This chameleon-like amp creates its magic with a trio of 12AX7 preamp tubes feeding into two EL84 power tubes for 15 watts of tight, modern tone. The all-new three-position Gain Structure switch gives the amp three distinct "boutique" voices, ranging from mild to wild. They're all tasty and touch-sensitive without masking the character of the guitar.

Recording-friendly features such as XLR line output with switchable speaker emulation and Power Amp Mute make it easy to lose yourself in the moment without getting bogged down by the details. A level-adjustable digital hall reverb adds just the right amount of ambience.

The handsome new Bassbreaker cosmetic treatment includes dark gray lacquered tweed, oversized pointer knobs, Fender "block" logo, and more. With great looks, tone, and features, the Bassbreaker 15 is destined to become a go-to amp for rehearsals, gigging and recording.

Features:

• 15 watts from two EL84 tubes for aggressive midrange character
• Gain Structure switch for three distinct tonal flavors and overdrive levels
• Recording-friendly Power Amp Mute, switchable speaker-emulated XLR line output and ground lift
• Single 12" 8-ohm Celestion V-Type speaker (combo only)

I absolutely love this machine!! It goes from Cream to Scream at the flick of switch!!! Lack of a Foot pedal channel switching feature would be my only complaint. I wanted a smaller practice amp for my living room and this is perfect. I was flip flopping between this and the Blues Jr, and the great staff at L&M in Guelph talked me into this and i am so glad they did. Great sound, even at low volume, courtesy of a true master volume!! Go get one!! You won't be disappointed!!!

This amp is just killer! I was in need of a small amp for clubs and I went to the Vox AC10. The AC10 is great but it's just not enough. Without the effects loop, no high gain, and only being 10 watts it became very limited. When I heard about the Bassbreaker 15 I went straight to L&M tried it out and within' 15 minutes I bought it and traded in the Vox. This amp delivers anything any guitars will ever need. Great cleans, great crunch, great high gain, very versatile EQ, more than enough volume, a great built in reverb, an effects loop, a direct out with cab simulation, and an external speaker out. Such a versatile amp in such a small package. Go try one out!!

Perhaps the best Fender amp in a long time. I have played through many; Princeton, Twin Reverb, Blues Jr, Blues Deluxe, and Bassman. If a Marshall plexi and a Fender twin had a love child this amp might be the result. The controls are well thought out and actually work at low volumes. It is however loud enough to play club gigs and anything bigger mic'd. The low gain setting is rather tame and muted but the mid is pure bluesy/rock perfect. The gain control allows the player to dial in the amount a dirt you want to perfection. The digital reverb is no match for a Princeton reverb but still high end unless you are looking for "Wipe Out" type sound. Takes pedals flawlessly. Thanks Mexico and the amp genius who engineered this one.

First off it really is a great sounding amp, on that side of things I had zero complaints. When I first used the amp it had a pretty noticeable mechanical hum to it. Not a 60 cycle thing but the amp itself with nothing plugged in hums loud enough to wonder if it's normal or if you got a bad one. The FX loop is a really the deal breaker or the bassbreaker though. Mine had to be sent back for repairs to shield the FX loop from the transformer, it was almost even level noise to signal before the repair. After getting it back the noise was well down but it would appear that the FX loop itself is after the master volume in the circuit, so your effects kick in at full throttle no matter what volume your amp is set at. If you can deal with some mechanical hum and never plan to use the effects loop it's really a very good sounding amp, I wish I could have made it work for me. As for Long and McQuade they made bringing the amp back in (repair and return) a 100% no hassle thing. Great store to deal with who stand behind their guarantees, would buy my eventual replacement for this amp from them with zero concerns.

Well I traded up from the bass-breaker 007 as I really wanted reverb and more headroom and thought that even if I wasn't stoked about the on-board reverb the affects loop would provide me with some options. Well here's the problem the affects loop didn't work came with a loud buzz that made it useless. Took it in for a repair and came back a little better but only seemed to work with one of my pedals. Was going to keep it but began to notice the amp had a rather annoying hum at all volumes. Enough I didn't like to get rid of it. I would say that overall the bass-breaker 007 was the better sounding amp but that just me.

This little beast goes from blackface clean to insane overdrive with a really simple (and easy to use) control set. The interaction between the Gain, Structure and Master controls provides a wide variety of sounds. While I'll never use the higher overdrive settings, even those don't sound like a cheap fuzz tone (which a lot of amps do).

This is the first Fender I've played that sounds great with gain at low & high volumes. Throw a humbucker into it and be in awe of the rich harmonic overtones & sweetness of the tone. I've plugged into amps worth twice the price that do not sound as nice. The hall reverb is wonderful for low gain, highly inspiring ambient sounds yet can be set as subtle as needed. The 3 gain stages switch have a natural progression in terms of gain but the volume jumps may require adjustments especially with higher volume levels. That & the fact that the gain switch isn't footswitchable (yet) are the only minute knocks against this amazing combo. This is one of the best Fender amps ever made & is the standout of the Bassbreaker series.
