1960 Fender Tweed Bassman Jensen Speakers - £2000

123

condition: excellent
delivery available
make/manufacturer: 1960 Fender
model name/number: Tweed Bassman Jensen Speakers

One of the last Fender Bassmans to leave the factory..The choke is dated 6060XX(46th week of 1960)The speakers are dated 2200XX(the 48th week of 1960)..The tube chart is daied JL (Dec. 1960)...With parts dating this late in the year,the amp was probably sold in 1961.The only non original parts are the standby switch,the three prong cord,and various tubes.( Note the NOS matched set of Tungsol 5881 power tubes).It has a re issue handle on it in the pictures,but the original is included, and is in good shape.The tweed is all there,only the lower front right is a bit tattered, showing wood.As I said the transformers are original...Power = 8087,Output = 45249,choke = 606046.The speakers still have their original cones,and sound great...No buzzing or cone cry. As you can see in the pics,all the electronics on the board are original,not so much as a resistor has been changed, even the caps under the doghouse are original.The amp sounds great,nice fat warm tone at low levels,and breaking up nicely when pushed.The amp has enough headroom for pedals,I use a TS 9, and the amp drives for days.
