Re: Bassman 10
Well guys I got the bassman 10 off and running. I changed the bias from the balanced to the adjustable type. I also eliminated the the hum adjustment and put 100 ohm resistors on each filiment leg. Made the amp sound great. One other thing I did that came from Torres is the use of the mica cap instead of the ceramic in the tone section. The guy that owned the amp wanted it a bit cleaner and that mica cap got me an extra number on the clean side with a really nice grainy distortion once you went past 5. Before it was on 4 when it did that. Anyway the amp sounds good and thanks again.
