    I have a Heritage Liberty which used to be a head but it's a 1x12 combo now. It sounds great - has that great "big" 6L6 tone which my SFDR can't get. Also has a great reverb which the bassman doesn't have. Even with all the tone options on this amp, it's very hard to get anything but great tones out of it.

    Our Dual Fifty amplifier is available in a 1x12 combo. The normal channel is based on a AA165 Bassman circuit. For tweed Bassmans you can call Mark at Victoria and he may be able to change the baffle cut on the 45410.

    Supersonic claims its clean channel is based on a 66 Bassman.

    How about just popping a BF or SF Bassman into a 1x12 custom cab?

    Just pick up an use Bassman head and get an Allen cab. http://www.allenamps.com/cabs.php

    One thing to consider is I think the bassman sounds better into a 4ohm load, so I am going to put a Weber 4ohm speaker (not sure what model yet) into a 112 cab for my Bassman head....

    Thanx Gravy.

    This one is set up with the Bass channel as a Normal Channel with the Switch Boossting the Bass and Midrange then the Normal Channel being stock EQ wise but both Channels I believe are using all of one 12AX7 for itself. That is Channel One all of V1 and Channel Two all of V3 and Channel One and Two each using half of V2 then from the Phase Inverter on its the classic 65 Bassman Power Section.

    What I like about this Amp is if I want it really hard and loud I stick a 12AX7 in V1 and V3 but if I want to soften it up a bit I stick a 5814A in V1 and V3 for less Voulme and much Softer Breakup.

    I've got Winged C 6L6's in my Power Section.

    To me I dont know why someone would buy a kit, clone, or inspired by Blackface Bassman type Amp when these thing can be had for so cheap to start with. Thats just my 2 cents though. They are such a great platform for doing little tweaks to the circuit and even crasy stuff as well.

    This amp seems to be [essentially] a Tweed Bassman w/ reverb, yes ?

    In any case, it's one I've been very interested in. :cool:

    If you change the cab a lot you will change the sound a lot. Just changing speakers in the cab can change the sound a lot.
