That is what I did to my AB-165 Bassman head. I sacrificed one channel and used the tube for two gain stages. The controls now read:Originally posted by Stephen Davis
Hello gear heads. I have a 66 Blackface Fender Bassman head and I want to mod the first channel. I would LOVE a dumble mod. Does anyone know of anything? Who does this? How do they sound? Thanks as always.
I agree. I bought mine (a blackface AB-165) in December 2001 for 600 EURO. The reason why they do not fetch a lot of money is that they are useless as bass amps (except for Bluegrass maybe) and almost so as guitar amps in stock wiring. I never understood why Fender at that time offered the guitarists 2 100 watt models (Twin and Showman) and only gave a 50 watt model to the bass players.Originally posted by Stephen Davis
As far as selling it and putting it towards another amp, the amp isn't worth that much. A 66 Bassman is worth about $500 TOPS. I gave $300 for mine almost 7 years ago. Now, if it was a 66 Deluxe, that would be a different story. Plus, it isn't that I want a different 2nd channel, that side is great. I just saw the first channel as useless, so why not make it useful.
