About This Listing

This Bassman 50 head (believed to be a 1972) has been modified to include the fabulous AB165 preamp circuit found in a 1967 Bassman head. Bought directly from Robert Dixon at Amphole, this amp functions and sounds beautiful, and has only been used in a smoke-free studio environment. Fantastic for higher-gain applications, especially distorted guitars.

If you are unfamiliar with the AB165 circuit and its provenance, this article does a good job explaining it Certainly a rare find, it has been thoroughly gone over by a fantastic tech and is super clean!
