Does anyone know the settings on the Fender Bassman amps that Brian uses?

JP, you asked this on the gretsch forum and I just posted a bible's worth of all his settings for ya. Smile

here is the skinny just in case:



1963 Bassman - 50 watts
- blonde Tolex with wheat grille cover
- 6G6-B unmodified circuit with solid-state rectifier
- preamp tubes - NOS Chinese 12AX7
- output tubes - NOS Philips 6L6WGB or NOS Tung Sol 5881
- cabinet - 2 x 12" with 12 gauge wiring for a fuller sound
- speakers - Celestion V30, 8 ohm, 30 watt speakers wired in parallel (4 ohm total cabinet load).

Settings
- normal input
- volume 4 (up to 5 for heavier overdrive)
- treble 10
- bass 4
- presence 10
Setzer uses long guitar leads for room on the stage,30-50ft


Roland 301 Chorus Echo

- direct sig. - ON
- input #3 (input #1 for stereo applications)
- volume - 4 to 4.5
- level -35dB
- chorus off
- intens
ity (not used)
- echo - ON
- mode 1 (3 for Sleepwalk)
- volume - 3 to 3.5
- repeat rate - 2
- intensity - 2
- switch on ECHO (not single delay)
- reverb - 0 (not used)
- bass tone - 5
- treble tone - 5
- output level -25dB
These pictures were taken before the Stray Cat reunion show at the Hootenanny. The settings appear to be very close to other pictures we've seen. (thank again, Brian F!)

Again, the Roland is used primarily in live situations. In the studio, old Echoplexes are often seen.
