  8. Got one recently! ImageUploadedByTalkBass1388457270.674865.jpg
    I only have pictures of it pulled out, will upload a better one when I get back to the jam space again! Running it at 8 ohms with Ampeg 410he cab, contemplating moving to 4 ohm but wondering if it would make a difference?

  9. Is that a 50 watt head and therefore doesn't have an impedance selector? If so, you will get a bit more volume running it at 4 ohms. Not much though, so if you're happy with the Ampeg cab, I'd stick with that.

  10. 100 watt, it's the bassman 100. Tried through a 210 and 410.... It sucked! Fuzzed out and blah! Pulled back to the 410 only and clear and loud enough again.

    I didn't know there was a Bassman club.

    My practice amp is this Bassman 60 that I keep upstairs in a guest bedroom.


    My current main rig is this Bassman 400 over a Bassman 115.

    Hey fellow Bassmanites. I've been looking to get just a tad but more headroom and output from my SF 100, so I started reading around and trying some stuff out. Here's what's working for me:

    1) Someone somewhere suggested pulling the gain/tone tube of the other channel if you aren't using it. That supposedly frees up some current. Check, V2 out. I think I noticed a bump...

    2) I did some tube swapping in V1 down to 12AU7, then T and Y. The U and Y had too little gain for the passive tone stack. Very quiet. The T however sounds great.

    3) Then I looked to the PI 12AT7, thinking that could be a bottleneck. Threw in a 12AU7 and that did the trick. Breakup happens much more smoothly. Doesn't just up and fart anymore.

    4) Oh yeah and picked up an NV412. So that helps. :bassist:

    Thank you for that! :)

    I just bought Coronado3's SF Bassman 100, and have been looking at cheap/easy ways to boost headroom.

    Sure. It's ever so slightly louder. I also set the EQ low, at 4 or less for bass and treble, which is a huge dB loss with the passive tone stack, so the mids aren't too scooped.

    Sorry for the delay I've been meaning to do this for a while now...

    I pulled my 300PRO and 810 out for gig this past weekend! Lots of compliments in between sets from the crowd and the band I was setting in with loved it.
