About a month ago, I purchased an early-1962 Fender Blonde Bandmaster via ebay. (head only, no cab) Terrific condition - Rough-Blonde Tolex/Oxblood/No rust. All original Fullerton, CA! - OT/PT/Choke/Caps/Cord/etc dates to late-'61 to early-'62. I paid $870 shipped. On the day that I received it, I sent to my amp tech. $275 later, the amp was sound as a pound with all new filter caps (kept the originals) and a full checkup. So, I'm in it for $1145. Luckily, it sounds absolutely outrageous. I love the way it morphs into a OD'd Marshall-ly "crang" at about 4-5.5 on the volume knob. It goes from tame to raging from 2-6 (even on the "normal" channel). And it has that cool 2½-tube-driven, phased, harmonic-vibrato. Unfortunately for me... in a wood-floored, street-facing, NYC apartment, that is just waaaay too f-ing loud. -=- One option would be an attenuator, but I fear I'll damage the original, valuable transformers. Second option, is to have those valuable transformers replaced with ones of the same footprint (no drilled holes) and store the originals. But, I'm kind of thinking about just selling it and getting something more appropriate for my situation. I mean after the cost of buying the amp, getting it serviced, buying attenuators/transformers... Shouldn't I just let it go and buy something more suited to apartment-play? Any advice? Do I potentially damage, change or liberate one killer, vintage amp?
