Did a little web surfing on this one, Jansen Basically cloned the Bassman or at least most accounts say this is the case.

Heres some fairly good info at This Site About a third the way down the page.

Hi Trout,thanks for your link,quite interesting stuff.What sort of amps are you running?
I'm thinking of changing the capacitors in mine,check over everything else,and give it a new cabinet,as the existing one is a bit shot.

Your very Welcome!

I have a really weird bunch of old amps and a bunch of DIY stuff here.

Currently restoring an old 1971 Univox U1511 150watter. I have a few DIY fenders, (Champs, Bandmaster) An old 70's Ampeg SVT
A couple weird little Kays and a 18W Clone of the 1974 Marshall.

Caps are not a bad idea, I have My univox recapped, Now I am replacing oxidized sockets, And will most likely do the pots, I figure I got it this far, Make it perfect. New Tolex might even happen lol.

Hey Trout,thanks for the reply...you have quite a few amps there!Great stuff.I don't actually know that much about amp electronics;my brother knows quite a bit about electronics however,and I know what i like musically,so between us we get by...
What is your preferred weapon of choice (instument-wise?)I play mainly keys and drums,with a bit of vocals.Mainly recording pop/light rock stuff.

Hey, Before you guys start digging into that amp, Please read up on the safety tips In the Sticky.
Safety Tips
Remember, These babies can kill!

My weapons of mass destruction have reduced themselves to a 1959 Gibson Melody Maker, And an original 1st year 1987 Fender Strat Plus Made in America. I have a couple nice acoustics also.

I find those 2 electrics really fill my needs.
