Authentic and very fat

By ThePinkFloyd, 20/07/2014
It is actually a hybrid fender silverface / blackface "drip edge" to 66 watts without master.
Mounted with good lighting and a cab with Weber.


Easier is not: we both channels (normal and bass), divided into 1 low gain and one hi-gain each, which can of course be bridged.
There are 3 settings channel: volume, treble, bass. That's all for potentiometers.
It is therefore plug'n'play


The sound is really round and heavy, it is far from Vox AC30 and Celestions.
He eats very well the effects (big muff, screamer, prince of tube tone ...). When doing cruncher amp sound is absolutely daunting, but what I prefer is to stick a fuzz. You end up with a wall of sound incredible in front of you.

A little breath when you do not play but given the age of the beast is a bit normal.


I use it for 2 years, I had a Vox AC30 cc2 before that was only good for clear sound (unlike the old vintage AC30 sounding exceptionally well).
I could compare it to a twin reverb silverface, the type of sound is comparable but HP Weber make the difference.

I have to bring in revisions every year because it often has bad capacitors, but since the sound that I draw that does not bother me.

If the choice over again, I would do it with closed eyes, ears wide open.

Just crazy

All Tube Amp. Date 74 mine, bought secondhand last year. Of 100 w fender, which dislocated.
low two inputs, two inputs "Instruments". A bright instruments on channels (which I think is useless), a volume for the crunch, three knobs bass, midrange, treble, a master volume.
This summary is wish!


This is an amp 70s, there are 5 knobs to move ... It plugs, adjusted the gain a little, and it plays live. A manual would serve no purpose.
the origin, it was intended to be a bass amp. But he has no interest for bassists. Too round, too hot, too "soft". However, with a guitar ... It's just monstrous.
So both inputs low (I mean entries, because they are not channels, clean and lead by example) (me) useless. Even plugging a guitar top, the sound is completely muffled.


Precision: with this amp, I 4X12 cab fender pyramid the same time. The final report is to my mind much that the amp cabinet. I tried the amp alone on a Marshall 2x12, it sounds serious, but still much smaller. Conversely, I tried the Blackstar Artisan pregnant with a JCM 900 and Marshall, both amps were transfigured!
Overall, the Bassman back a density and serious medium incredible. There is a thick its pretty crazy.
clean sound, with the volume to 2 or 3, is highly crystalline. as the sum of fender. grow to 8 or 9, you get the crunch ... :-) No effect, no hope of having a popping sound, or even really fat. it is very clean and precise.
I play with a 333, a Gretsch Anniversary box half a Danelectro 12 string fender or Spirit. In fact, I just have a TS9 and a Rat for distortion, a Wha and reverb (which still lacks the amp ...). And each time, it sounds serious ... In a style Blues Rock / Rock but both more violent stuff, type stoner, Noise, No Wave. I believe that what most characterizes it is this density / power sound at once precise, warm and full.


I for one year. I had tried many or amp before, Vox (AC 30) Fender (hotrod twin reverb) and Marshall (JCM 900 and 800). For now, I have not found anything that suits me much.
I bought 1600 euros with the enclosure (ok, a bit expensive, I admit). Still, I bought it tomorrow if it is necessary!

That happiness

Bassman 100 silver face has evidament lamps, without effects, connectivity can not be simpler, just over 100 watts issued, all settings to what is most useful minimum effort for maximum sound


The configuration will be more complicated for a penguin or a dork! Ha there is a good manual! The sound that is sought and easily found even without setting the equalizer was déjas THE sound that'll make them turn pale guitarists and drummers! Hummmmmm power when you hold us!


Yes for haevy I love, with a small Fender deluxe active or all just an Ibanez ATK, saturation (for style) but a warm, round clear
And god knows that the Eleventh Plague make a lot of bass intro!


I utiise 6 years now but mostly for the studio, on stage it so that shipments must déjas have a room with a volume sufisant lol, for small rooms, I still had my old fidel Pevey TNT 115, I like all the particularitée the fender ....... except its weight!

A Wonder

By jeffka, 21/12/2011
Fully amp lamps, 100W, and the strict limits are rglages ncessaire, the connection could not be simpler. No effect on the available amp.


Versatile amplifier architecture, there branch what you want: Bass, Guitar, Microphone voice, keyboard, bass drum microphone, bass (large focus feedback very serious ),...

To get a good sound just turn it on and plug in a bass and that's all APRS is not quibble with a few pots to fine tune the sound but it works no matter what.

A manual? What is it?


Depending on the juggling between the master volume and the volume of each channel is a power and a sound that goes from light to crunch. Then we can use the two channels that have quali diffrent to fawn on her.

I personally use the channel by connecting a low precision with low knob 7, 7 knob treble and volume 7 (a 7ender is normal). master 3 or 4 and it is already too strong for my guitar. And the sound is rock and roll crunch is a warm and fun makes me hallucinate.

You can have a trs its jazzy bass by plugging in the active channel in the 2nd between 2 and looking around at the qual.


I've had 6-7 months is a divine pleasure to use, it is a galre to transport, the head 25 kilos and 50 kilos the cabinet (2x15) a dm nagement each use, the better to have a local ddi and not to move except for the concerts.

is the sound I was looking for more than 10 years but never had the opportunity to test it. I miss him more than an old Hiwatt head and I would be filled.

I had some pre amps, a Hartke, Ampeg and a Gallien Kruger. This amp can do the same thing as the three with its grain and more. A killing.

My grateux I think its the one with Roger Waters.
