So, here I am, writing about the history of some old gear, the Silverface Fender.
Comments: Some later Bassman 10’s had a MID control on the bass channel.
Bassman 10’s produced between late 19 have a black control panel and Black White Silver grill cloth.

The "blackface" Bassman amps with AA165 and AB165 circuits from the mid-60s are often heralded as the cream of the crop for classic rock tones, and their ability to take pedals well makes them a great choice for the modern player with a packed pedal board.Here on Reverb, you'll find a great selection of these amps, both in their original "Piggyback" configuration and just the heads by themselves.Output increased to 70 watts when CBS switched to an ultra-linear output transformer.Though the original 1952 design was intended and marketed as a bass guitar amplifier, guitar players all over quickly adopted these venerable amps as their own thanks to amazing breakup and beefy bottom end.I recently purchased a 1972 Silverface Champ for 40 bucks.
