The 5F6-A Bassman's design was directly copied by Marshall Amplifiers within their JTM-45 amplifier during the early 1960s. The first series of the reissue were made at the Corona, California facility, and came equipped with four Eminence-made 10" blue frame Al Ni Co speakers, and a solid state rectifier unit.Later on, production was moved to Ensenada, Baja California, and the model name was altered to "59 Bassman LTD".Only 11 of these early 5D6 Bassman examples are known to have survived.The lowest serial number known to still exist is 0013 (Frank Roy), 0035 (Albert Talley), 0075 (Jim Cornett), 0077 (Perry Tate), 0089 (Mark Grandfield), 0701, 0745 (Walter Horton), 0769 (Hayes Kolb), 0780 (sold on e Bay Nov 2006), 0783, and 0785 (Hayes Kolb) are among those still known to exist.Scales and Seafood & Steaks is a perfect location for your next event or party.With our combination of amazing food, award-winning wines, creative specialty cocktails, and a breathtaking view of the harbor and bay, Scales offers a distinctly memorable experience for your private parties or banquets.During November 1954, Fender introduced the newly designed 5D6 Bassman amplifier offering four ten inch speakers and was designed utilizing two rectifier tubes.

Produced from 1954 until 1960, these models are called the "narrow panel" tweed amps .In July 1957, Fender introduced the model 5F6 Bassman.This model also had four Jensen P10R speakers, but the power supply was redesigned around a single 83 mercury vapor rectifier tube, and a new preamp circuit was introduced that included a three knob tone stack, with separate controls for Treble, Mid and Bass.Designed by Freddie Tavares, longtime R&D man at Fender, Instead of the single 15" speaker, four 10" Jensen Alnico P10R speakers were used.The circuit had two innovations: a fixed bias for the power tubes, which increased power in comparison to the earlier cathode bias design, and a cathodyne phase inverter, using half of the 12AX7 tube and allowing a third gain stage on the other half.Call us at 831-375-1331 and let us assist you with all of your questions and help you plan the perfect event.
