Bassmate amp '59 (Vintage series)

The Colorsound Bassmate Amp is a powerful 45W Bass & Guitar amplifier head.  

It is a 1 channel amp with 2 inputs - 1 normal & 1 low.

It features a Bright switch that adds some high frequencies to the tone that is most suitable for Guitar, but it can also be used for Bass.

TheColorsound Bassmate Amp is based on the famous Fender Bassmantm amplifer (5F9-A model) which remains one of Fender's best all around amps of all time.
Although designed for bass amplification, guitarists soon realized its warm, rich tube tone and its sonic potential and quicky became a favorite amplifier among guitarists.

The highly acclaimed 5F9-A circuit that is based on, the solid pine construction, and the double 6L6 tubes all contribute to the touch sensitive & reasonant tone that this amplifier is capable of producing.

The Colorsound bassmate amp features an adjustable bias trim pot, and it can work also with EL34 tubes for a more European sound.
