The spring reverb and tremolo effect will also be pretty much the same on the amps that feature those effects - and they're the standard by which those effects are judged on other amps (and fx pedals.) The most noticeable differences between those amps will be ones which are pretty much obvious when comparing any kind of valve amp, so they remain true with vintage Fender models, as expected: smaller, low-wattage amps will give you a great crunchy tone when they break-up, with the volume cranked up; louder amps will keep cleaner at louder volumes; and amps with bigger speakers will sound fuller than the ones which have smaller speakers.Vintage amps don't have "Master" only "Volume" controls.Sure, vintage Fender amps are part of rock'n'roll history, and for mojo and history alone, they'd be worth investing - if you have the money to spare.But for the serious, working musician who plays regular gigs or records often, it wouldn't be such a great idea.Unfortunately (for bassists...) it turned out to actually be one of the best GUITAR amps ever - we're talking about the Bassman, of course!Since this slightly massive change of course, Fender never again gained a reputation as manufacturer of great bass amps - even though they kept coming: another fantastic vintage model, which is much sought-after today, is the Fender Musicmaster bass amp (though, once again, it's better known because it turned out to work great with guitars - it's one of Dan Auerbach's favourite amps, used on many Black Keys recordings!
They all had the classic features we're familiar with now: heavy steel chassis, chromed control plates, and heavy pine cases covered with tweed fabric.
) For this reason, sadly (but perhaps wisely...) Fender has chosen not to invest too much on making different new bass amp models.
The good news, though, is that the ones they DO make are very good indeed! These amps are very well-priced, powerful and unbelievably light for their sizes - a triumph of design.
With exciting new releases such as the new Bassbreaker series, it's fair to say Fender Amps will continue to define the sound of rock'n'roll for a long time to come.
If you A/B any choice of different new or vintage Fender amps, you'll probably notice tonal differences, but in many ways they are all pretty much similar: despite differences in valve configurations, speakers etc., they all have those superb clean tones that made Fender famous.
