Manufacturer: Fender Musical Instruments

Model: Narrow Panel Bassman 5F6-A

Year: 1959

Sound and essence of rock n roll


What's original:

-Power and output transformers

-tolex (worn/shows its age)

-grill cloth

-4-10" Jensen P10Q Alnico Speakers (professionally re-coned and broken in)

-chasis and components (handful of resistors and caps have been professionally replaced)


What's not original:

-handle

-some resistors and caps

-power cable (3 prong power cable installed)

-power tubes have been recently replaced using Wathen Cryotone 5881s. I also have a set of Sovtek 5881s if those are preferred

-preamp tubes are Wathen Cryotone, currently using a 12ax7 tube for rectifier tube


Mods:

(Disclaimer: all mods were in effort to make the amp more practical for modern day use in studio and live shows. They are reversible if requested)


-In order to preserve original transformers, the amp currently has Mercury Magnetic transformers installed. (and they sound amazing)


-a custom speaker cable mod was done so an attenuator could be put in between speaker and amp. 2 ohm attenuators are hard to come by so an order was made to Weber for 100 watt attenuator with 2 ohm option.

-3 prong power installed.

Currently lives in a road case that I am willing to include but adds a tone of weight to shipping so the cost will have to be adjusted accordingly. I can also ship without road case.

These changes were made in order for the amp to be played in modern studio and live settings. This way the sweet spot is easily achieved without the bleeding ears.


All mods were completed professionally and with care by the tech/owner of boutique amp maker OldSchool Amps
