I have just purchased what I believe to be a 1971 Fender Bassman Head.
I would like to ask the oirum some advice regarding some niggles that the amp has.
Firstly on the Bass channel, wheneverthe deep switch is puched UP a POP sound is made.
Secondly, again mainly on the BAss channel, but also slightly on the other, there seems to be a bit of background noise (it sounds like a swish/swirl noise not really a crackle)
and finally on the other channel, when the bright switch is in the UP position, and you touch the switch, a static noise can be heard through the cab.
So my question to you is what 'jobs' does the amp need doing? It has already been sugested that the Caps should be replaced (do people agree?)
Also before anyone asks (thank you for your consideration for my safety... I have friends who are able to work on amps in a competant and safe manner, so they will be assisting me in all work that needs to be carried out)
(Valve was removed to ease taking amp out of head box)
Thanks for reading, Ian.
