Re: Fender hum me
I just finished a 1978 Bassman 10 that had the hum balance and bias control in the back. Evidently there was a short at one time cause the hum pot looked like it had been cooked a little. I installed 100 ohm resistors to the filament leads and the amp sounds great. It did hum till I did that. Also I changed the bias circuit to an adjustable circuit instead of a balanced one. Those two things made that amp sound really good.
