Blackface Bassman

Converted this 1965 Fender Bassman AB165 circuit into the more coveted AA864 circuit.

I normally don't like modifying Blackface amps much more than this, but the owner isn't ever going to sell the amp and he wanted something more from the Bass channel and the option of more mids in the Normal channel.

So, I put a more VOX-like preamp in the bass channel, and converted the deep switch into a boost switch.

I also converted the normal channel's bright switch into adjustable midrange boost.

Made for a great-sounding, versatile amp with the outward appearance of a bone-stock Blackface Bassman (except for the crooked grill cloth installed by a previous owner - blech!).
