Premier Guitar recently took a look at the Fender Super Bassman Pro, the powerful 300-watt stadium-filling amp that is designed for the biggest shows and largest stages.
The magazine gave the Super Bassman Pro four and a half out of five picks for tones, playability/ease of use and build, praising its vintage clean and modern overdrive tones and responsive controls.
“The Super Bassman is an amp for players who need serious volume to fill large venues, or have a sound guy cool enough to let them crank it up to Shea Stadium-caliber levels,” wrote Jordan Wagner. ”That being said, the immense power also gives the amp headroom that makes it a great amp for playing at lower levels, provided that you want your tone to be crystal clear with great tube warmth.
“When it’s overdriven, there isn’t much out on the market that can stand in its way, making it a king among men in the world of high-powered tube amplification for bassists.”
