Bassman for doom?



Bassman for doom?

Postby tjlong » Mon Mar 24, 2014 3:28 am

Has anyone ever tried a blackface Bassman for doom/sludge/drone?
I'm looking for a clean amp as a platform for pedals (Pharoah/Megalith/Musket). Would the Bassman be too bright or lack low end? tone-wise, i'm trying for the usual suspects (Dopesmoker, Lysol, Earth 2, Dopesick)

thanks!

I use the "bassman" input of a Mig 50.
Clean as a whistle. Loud as fuck.
Tons of low end....too much for some.
Go for it!

I can't say I've tried a Bassman specifically for Doom, but I don't think you'll have a problem.

Bassman + 2x15 cab = sounds like Doom to me

bassman preamp > ultra linear power amp = Sunn Model T



It'll do fine. :thumb:

Bassman rules. Great pedal platform and sounds awesome. They're great for heavy music. Darren plays one and he's got golden ears.

D uses one with pretty fantastic results.

Wait. So the 'undesirable' UL Bassman amps are essentially Model Ts?

Essentially yes, the other difference is the power tubes. I believe the bassmans do not use 6550's like the Model T's do. Other then that... yeah pretty much the same. :thumb:
