Re: Blues Deville to Bassman?
I've got a Blues Deville, I use it regularly for comparisons of what's bad about new amps.I would think gutting it and converting it would be a total waste of time. What works well for me is to build stuff from PA amp chasses, looking for iron that comes close to the specs you want. You should be able to find an old bogen, rauland, masco,dukane, davis, allied-knight kit, heathkit etc that will have secondaries on the PT close to spec, along with healthy 5V supplies and possibly even a bias tap and a nice interleaved OT that will handle 2 6L6's. Work out the whole thing on the chassis, match it to some nice speakers and play your ass off....just my .02....
