BOSS FBM-1 overview

  • 1Description

Emulate the sound of a classic amp with the BOSS FBM-1 Fender '59 Bassman Pedal. Using COSM (Composite Object Sound Modeling) technology, BOSS has captured the sound of the iconic 1959 Fender Bassman Amplifier and reproduced it in a pedal format. Normal and Bright inputs are included, with the Bright input providing a tone that's closer to that of the original Bassman. Using the Gain knob can bring your tone from sparkling clean to fat and crunchy, like the tones used to spark the rock music revolution. The original Bassman's front panel controls have been replicated on the pedal using stacked concentric pots which allow for more controls to be placed in a smaller area. Adjustments include Level, Gain, Treble, Bass, Middle, and Presence controls, so you can really dial in the tone you desire, the same way you would on the amplifier. The pedal is finished in the familiar color scheme with a tweed-colored box accented by a complementary brown and silver faceplate.

Classic BOSS Design
The FBM-1 can run off of a single 9V battery or an optional external 9 VDC power supply. The electronics are encased in BOSS's iconic durable metal housing with a non-slip rubber base. The battery compartment can be easily accessed by unscrewing the thumbscrew at the front of the pedal. This pedal utilizes a buffered bypass for silent switching and driving long cable runs even while the pedal is disengaged.
