    New old amp added to the herd - Bassman content

    I snagged a Bassman 70 10-13 years ago or so. Been my main gigging amp most of that time (through a sunn412, or a Musicman 212RH), been rock solid and sounds great. Only mod on mine is, I bypassed the master (replaced the pot with a jumper), and put a mid range control for the guitar channel in...

    Is my capacitor bloated?

    C32 & its neighbor look fine to me. C20 in the first pic looks like it MAY have slight deformation, but it could also just be the angle. (And most likely IS the angle, and lighting.....or simply a manufacturing deformation) If there's no issues with the amp sonically, and the grill cloth...

    The [whatever] speaker [does/does not] "color" your tone...

    Generally if someone says a speaker "doesn't color your tone", its normally said about speakers like the EVM12L, which has a fairly flat frequency response (at least much closer to flat than a typical guitar speaker). So its based on the published Frequency response for the speaker (in that...
