Fender Bass Amplification will formally unveil the new professional 400 PRO HD head and three new PRO Series speaker cabinets at this winter's NAMM show in Anaheim, California.
The latest offering, the 400 PRO HD, is a 350w @ 4Ohm (500w @ 2Ohm) head designed to deliver in either live situations or in the studio mix. The 400 PRO HD has the power to easily handle club level gigs, and it provides plenty of "tweakability" without being confusing to use.
"The 400 PRO HD is ideal for bassists looking for a high quality tone in a medium-powered format," states Jay Piccirillo, Marketing Manager for Fender Bass Amplification. "The 400 PRO HD has the same front end feature set as our flagship 800 PRO head, in a package that reduces the power and the price tag."
The 400 PRO HD feature set includes a Five-band EQ (including a Three-Band Semi-Parametric EQ with Gain Control and On/Off switch) an easy to use adjustable Compressor and an Enhance switch which emphasizes highs and lows. The Balanced XLR line out comes complete with a Ground Lift, Line Out Level and a Pre/Post EQ switch. The Mute switch disables all outputs except the Tuner send. A One-button footswitch that enables/disables the Three-Band Semi-Parametric EQ is included.
Dimensions: H: 7", W: 23", D: 15 1/2". Weight: 42 lbs. US MSRP is $828.55.
New Fender PRO Series bass cabinets for 2004 include the 210 PRO, the 115 PRO and the 115 PRO EXT. Each has Fender Special Design Eminence cast-frame drivers (in either a 2x10 or 1x15 configuration) and a compression horn driver. Cosmetic treatment includes black carpet covering, stacking corners, metal grille and removable casters. Each feature a back plate with 1/4", Speakon and banana plug inputs, which make them compatible with most any system.
The 115 PRO EXT is a 4 Ohm extension cabinet targeted at owners of higher powered combo bass amplifiers that can benefit from an extension cabinet.
