What are some of the mods that are done to the black face bassman? I know there's one that makes it sound more Marshally, one that Dumble did.. what else is there? Details on what the mod is, how it's done, clips??
That's a great sounding Bassman!
I had been planning on getting one, but I have to hold off on it for a little while since my GAS for something else got in the way.
Anyway, good thread topic and I thought I'd keep it going. Keep them coming!
Hahaha, none of those.. bit you're close. It's a dumble tone. Here's a teaser:
Wait for 15-20 seconds until the solo starts.
Here's what it is... 1982 Kitty Hawk Standard ODS Spirit. Apparently they went out of business after borrowing heavily from Boogie and Dumble
Convert the Bass channel to Marshall w/ cathode driver tone stack. Have the best of both worlds. BF Fender on one channel, Marshall on the other. Add a post PI Master Volume to make the amp much more versatile.
i personally think modding blackface fenders is like burying history...
kinda like what happened to all those marshall plexi and metal face amps
anyways there are so many clone buliders out there that have these circuits down.... start there and mod there
makes sense to me
Tell me where I can get a Bassman style amp PTP wiring and does all that my Allen/master volume modded amp does for $ 500 and I'll buy. I'd be glad to get one. I bet you can't point me to one. Anyway I've has this mod done to many BF Bassman heads and it's never cost me more than $500. I know a local amp guy that does it for me for almost nothing. That's why I do this, and the fact that there's still hundreds of BF Bassman heads still out there.
I have been looking into that, seems to be alot of varying opinions if adding a master volume is a good thing.
