||Taming the mids - Ampeg Reverberocket|
I have a '64 Reverberocket that is way too midrangy sounding. Any mods that can be made to the tonestack that will help this? A little more bass or lower mids would be nice too. Here's the schematic for the amp:

These came with a C12R or a CTS alnico speaker - both of which have weak low end, probably due to the wimpy magnet structures. I would try a Weber C12NQ or C12NT for mo' bass without losing highs.

This one has a CTS speaker with an ampeg label on it. I'm not sure if it's alnico or not. It's got kind of a horseshoe shaped cover on the back that's closed in on both sides. I actually like the sound of this speaker quite a bit.

Nevermind, I figured it out on my own. In case anybody cares, it was just a matter of changing the .002uf cap in the tone stack to a .022uf cap. The amp now sound much fatter and is not so piercing in the mids.
