1 Otter 1 month ago If you just want to see the new amp, skip to the next reply. Until then, I feel obliged to discuss some of my amp journey, and what brought me to build the low watt Bassman.Some of you may remember an amp I made about 8 years ago. It's a kit offered by Mojotone, a recreation fo the 1960s Silvertone Twin Twelve (minus the shoddy reverb and generic tremolo), seen here graced by my lovely Gretsch 6120The amp was great and served me many years, but truth be told, it didn't do the Silvertone thing very well, I think it simply had too much power available, due to it's more traditional power supply (the original 1484 had a pretty low-rent power supply involving lots of voltage doublers and such). You could get the raggedy Silvertone breakup, but you'd be deaf by the time you got there. Anyone who's played a real Silvertone 1484 knows that headroom is not in its vocabulary.In the meantime (around 2018) I picked up a 1960s Ampeg Gemini I (seen below)Now this thing has some mojo, and it took me a while to realize, it does the Silvertone thing better than the Silvertone I made. 220k plate loads, baxandall tone stack, 6GC7 concertina inverter, and a fairly loosey goosey power supply. With beauty reverb and trem to boot, it's what you always wanted your Princeton/Deluxe to be.And so the Gemini became my #1, and the faux Silvertone sat unused, and too loud.But then the whole coronavirus thing has left me with more free time than usual, and after working my way through numerous other unfinished projects in my music room, my eyes fell upon the lonely 1484. As they say in the real estate biz, it's got "good bones". A chassis, transformers, and tube sockets, it's only a handful of bits and pieces away from becoming another amp.
