If I really like the sound of it then yes
Blackface Bassmans are awesome. They do have great cleans for sure, but also have awesome crunch, more so than many other BF amps. There’s some great videos on YT of Johan Segeborn playing a BF Bassman through a Marshall 4x12, and it sounds like a Marshall with more clarity and less grind. Really cool.
I used a ‘65 Bassman for many years and liked it for both guitar and bass. Workhorse amps for sure.
Johan is the man! He has amazing content and I’ve tried Marshall’s an SV20h and and an origin20 and they sound ok but fenders to me sound better, the Marshall’s sound flat while fenders sound 3 dimensional and have more depth and clarity does the bassman still have those qualities?
Please Keep us posted on that Bassman. They can be fabulous amps and I agree whole heartedly about a GOOD attenuator, to allow the amp to be run in it's sweet spot! I also agree that two 25 watt greenbacks could likely get cooked with that amp cranked. Fully driven, that amp can probably hit 65-70 watts, or more!
On a side note, I often pride myself on identifying old cars by the nose shot. The one in your avatar has got me stumped?
Please Un-Stump Me?
I ran the amp wide open on 10 it was a surreal experience and I believe it’s a 1940 Ford sedan
You might like the Nobels ODR-1 awesome natural overdrive pedal.
I prefer a transparent OD, either a klon style or blues breaker style I think
Transparent is a buzzword. There's no such thing as a boost/OD pedal that's "transparent".
The Nobels box is great.
I use a Bad Bob.
You...would like a LPB-1.
