5F6-A “Tweed Bassman”




Fat Jimmy Vintage Series 5F6-A    

The Fat Jimmy Vintage Series 5F6-A is our authentic recreation of the legendary 5F6-A ‘Tweed Bassman’ circuit. This circuit was featured in the 4 x 10” tweed ‘Bassman’ amplifier combos manufactured by the ‘Fender Electric Instrument Company’ from 1957 – 1959, and is universally recognized as one of the greatest guitar amplifiers of all time. Incredible chime with beautiful rich clean tones at lower volumes, and what might be considered THE definitive rock & roll overdrive when turned up.

Enough said.
