This thing is a LOT of fun. Got it for $95, nearly mint.

Re: What should I do with this Bassman?

UPDATE: I am lazy, but finally wired the speakers correctly and... Ta-DA! it sounds better! I feel like it's slightly louder but not dramatically so. I think it's also a bit more open sounding, but I haven't cranked it up too high yet. (Neighbors....) So, two questions: 1. If I were to connect only ...

Re: What should I do with this Bassman?

Thanks, folks. I measured the cab with a multimeter and it read just shy of 32 Ohms. (I don't have a true impedance tester, this was just DC resistance.) The individual speakers (disconnected from the cab) read around 8 Ohms. To complicate things, a guy from Eminence wrote me back to say that bass f...

Used MIM Precision Bass w/ Duncan QPs. My first bass, and I think I'm in love.

Re: What should I do with this Bassman?

I am a neophyte w/ regard to amps, but I assumed that any impedance mismatch this big would be instantly noticeable (if not catastrophic) so... yeah, I'm confused. I just used this amp onstage (playing bass) with a small band a few weeks ago. Other than a slight buzzing in the speakers (which I thin...

Re: What should I do with this Bassman?

Oh, it never occurred to me that the transformer could be a replacement. Better figure that out first, I guess. Thanks for the heads up. If you are sure it's wired wrongly, and the transformer is the original one, meant to push 8 ohms, then yes you should rewire it. If you want to use it for bass-y ...

What should I do with this Bassman?

I have a used Fender Bassman 10. (It's a 4x10 combo). These things were originally shipped with 4 32-Ohm speakers wired in parallel for an 8 Ohm load. But on this one, a previous owner swapped in some Eminence E-M10G speakers (#10609) which are 8 Ohm, and wired it all in series . So the amp, which g...
