Notes on the Super Bass

The schematic is a bit fuzzy on the tone stack. That is a 56k slope resistor and 250k pot. These values are the same as the tweed Bassman! As a matter of fact, this circuit is VERY similar to the tweed Bassman all around in the signal path. Obvious differences are the EL34 output tubes and solid state rectifier. This is a nice amp.

Note the differences between this and the Super Lead. There is a ton more gain and bass roll-off on the Super Lead, which gives it it's bright and crunchy character. This amp is much more subdued, but can still rock hard when cranked.
