Up for sale, a circa 1970 Fender V. Bassman 15 speaker cabinet in exceptional condition, loaded with a pair of vintage Altec Lansing 422 8Z 15 alnico magnet drivers. One of Fender's more unique cabinets of the Silverface era, this sealed, front-loaded cabinet is punchy and direct-sounding with a broad bass frequency response and clear treble range.Fender offered a bevy of high-powered factory upgrade speaker options in the Silverface era, and it's pure conjecture whether these rare Altec Lansings are original to the cab or aftermarket replacements. The speakers hail from the early'70s, and the highly regarded Altec Lansing 422 8Z (also referred to in some catalogs as the 418B) combined a 416-style frame with a special tighter, lower excursion cone, complete with aluminum dust cap. Essentially the answer to JBL's D130, this Altec woofer is rated at 100 watts with an extended frequency range compared to its predecessors and a 3 voice coil. The speakers have pristine frames and original cones, and in combination with the sealed, front-loaded cabinet design, this Bassman cab can easily handle the wattage of any Fender head of the era, ideally suited for bass, guitar, or amplifying an electric piano or combo organ. The pair of 15 speakers are rated at 8ohms each, wired for a 4ohm load. The original smooth black tolex and silver sparkle grillcloth with turquoise stripe are remarkably clean with some requisite minor scuffing, and all original hardware is present including the casters, handles, nickel corners, and raised Fender logo with tail.
