Pro rehab - new caps, tubes, clean pots, 3-prong power cord, and replace switch.  Classic vibe; warm tube tone.

 

I have owned this Fender Bassman amp head since the mid-seventies.  I played medium-sized clubs with usually two guitar players, a keyboard, a drummer, and a couple of singers up front.  I used a Peavey bottom with 2- 15 inch speakers.  I set the volume on the amp to 4, and that was generally the right volume to balance out the rest of the band.  I played often for 5-6 seasons, occasionally for 4-5 seasons, and rarely after that.  I realized that I am lugging this stuff around, and that I just donít have the opportunity to play like before.  Last week I sold my Fender Jazz bass that I had bought new from Sam Ash in Whiteplains, N.Y. in 1975.  

 

Last year I did get together with some guys for a little garage jam, and I found that one of the switches on the amp seemed worn and crackly, really annoying, so I later took my amp to the local pro amp guru, Gary Dahle.  He had done some other work for me in the past, he really knows his stuff.  Since this amp has been a good friend and faithful companion for many years, I asked Gary to do whatever he thought should be done to make this amp fresh again.  The work that was done was to replace the capacitors, (they wear out, you know) new tubes all around, clean the pots, replace the power cord with a new%2
