'59 Fender Tweed Bassman Meets Marshall Plexi

$1795.00 + $50 shipping anywhere in the USA


Hand-built vintage tone + inventive imagination = Great Amp sound and flexibility.  This is not just a re-creation of what is possibly the greatest guitar amp of all time -- The Fender 1959 Tweed Bassman, but is a logical and sonic evolution that combines the best of the Bassman™ and Jim Marshall's inspiring JTM 45 Plexi Marshall™.  Sporting either 6L6, 5881, or EL-34 power tubes, adjustable fixed bias, 4 ten inch speakers, and a tube rectifier wrapped in a combo package, this amp design combines some of the greatest sounds in the history of Rock-and-Roll.  The basic circuit design of this amplifier gave rise to the Tweed and Blackface Twins, the Blonde  and Blackface Bassman, the early Marshall, Park, Hiwatt and Orange amps and provided the standard of excellence that guitar amps have shot for since. This amp is the result of a mating of the best of both the '59 Bassman™ and Plexi Marshall™ worlds.  Add in a post-phase inverter master volume, top-shelf components, proven point-to-point wiring techniques, and you've got a true treat!! 

All Campbell Sound amps are assembled and tested individually by hand.

This is an amplifier that will sound terrific right out of the box and for decades to come.

Give it a listen:
(These sound files were produced by mic'ing the amp (with 5881 power tubes) from 1' in front and running the mic through a Tascam Mixer into the computer and saving the sound file in a QuickTime or RealAudio small file format using Sound Studioor RealAudio Producer.  Believe me, the amp sounds *MUCH* better in person!)
