Fender Bassbreaker BB-112 1 x 12 Inch Guitar Cabinet
Bassbreaker series guitar amplifiers continue Fender’s storied lineage with a kind of “parallel evolution” that evokes the dawn of hard rock. Bassbreaker takes the original Bassman design and breaks away with features including dark gray lacquered tweed covering, refined pointer knobs and unique circuitry plus power tubes and speakers hinting at the U.K. amps that “borrowed” Fender circuits in the 1960s. The sound is one of pure tube greatness.
BB-112 speaker enclosures are engineered to perfectly match and enhance Bassbreaker combos and heads. They offer rich, resonant voicing and low-end “thump,” with prolevel performance for today’s rock players.

- Lightweight Cab with a Dark SoundReview by Kabir
The advertising blurb for this cabinet spoke of its low-end thump and for once it's pretty accurate. This small, lightweight 1x12" guitar speaker cab is quite dark for such a small box. Some players might not like that, but it's a nice change to mid / high-mid focused 1x12" cabs that can sometimes sound "honky". The sound of a Strat enjoys some thickness through this, especially on the neck pickup where everything sounded very bluesy. With a Les Paul bridge pickup driving some distortion pedals in front of a clean amp, this cabinet sounded really good - I was tempted to say "like a 4x12" but I resisted! - that additional weight in the tone giving the overall sound some heft.
There is enough top-end for the guitar to be heard but the overall sound of this cab is very beefy. I personally like the sound of it, and it's nice to see Fender catering to the rock players who usually favour the very famous black-and-gold British take on their amps! (Posted on 25/04/2018)
