1959 Tweed Bassman – Part V

Part 5, Assembly of chassis and speakers into cabinet and final listen:

If you use the MojoTone kit w/cab you will need to have them drill the mounting holes in the 4-10 cabinet to install the chassis. Minor additional charge. Install the 4) 10” Jensen speakers so that the speaker terminals are towards the center of the cab. This will help in wiring and servicing. When installing the chassis turn the cabinet on its side for easier line up of the chassis mounting holes.

There is a time element for the speakers to break-in and loosen up a bit. About 40 hrs. But still, this 4-10 cabinet sounds GREAT! Guitar or bass, this is tone HEAVEN!

If you have found this blog fun and interesting let me know. I had a lot of fun doing it. If you know any guitarists looking for an amp like this I am open to building one out for them.

The previous posts have been opinions from Jacques Sewrey re: the building of a ’59 Fender Bassman clone kit.

Coming up in future blogs will be the modding of and minor circuit changes of the aforementioned Bassman. This will improve the tone options and make biasing for the power tubes easier.
