So, borrowed/purchasing a silverface bassman 100. Many and most say not enough to gig with, which is my confusion. I play with a loud guitar player, I'm not getting buried and was asked to turn down last gig... Bassman regular channel, bright switch up, master dimed, channel volume at 3, treble and mid at 5-6, bass just under 3, through a svt-410he. It is unreal tone and volume, backed by about everyone hearing it. A few bass players were asking how I got the volume out of it. The bass channel wasn't quite enough but that regular channel bright switch brings this thing to life if you keep the bass dialled back, otherwise it's all mud. Is it possible many of these other amps not being loud enough were needing some TLC? Maybe I found a winning combination, it has more perceived volume than my 500 watt solid state head anyways. Not after a big debate, just some insight to why my first hand use and experience is contradicting most everyone else's opinions haha. Any ideas?
