    Have not had much time to fiddle with it, but so far I can't make it sound bad. My challenge is balancing the eq with higher volumes (read: turn the bass down) to avoid overdriving my cabinet.

    Picture shows the head atop my fEARful 15/6 tube, which I built with this very head in mind! :hyper:

    I have already embarked on a 1515/66 build and am very much anticipating the sound of them together.

    Thanks Robert! I live in St. Johns but the head lives at an undisclosed rehearsal location ;)

    Nice, I went in the opposite order. Bought the Super Bassman, flatpack for a 15/6 tube shipped this morning. Careful with that footswitch... I'm very easy on my gear and broke that flimsy little thing in no time. Built a solid one out of a mini pedal enclosure (1590A if you know what that is...) and it's been doing just fine. The standard 1 button fender stomps that they bundle with their guitar amps work fine too and are $25 on amazon and much higher quality than the one included with the Bassman. Also, Bass Gear has a great in depth article on the EQ of the amp: http://btpub.boyd-printing.com/publication/?i=143796
