Hi Everybody,

This forum has really been helping my motivation to practice and learn more lately. Thanks!

I hope someone can help me with a gear problem.

I bought a 1965 Pre-CBS Fender Bassman head off eBay. I have no idea how old the tubes, transformers or filter caps are but the thing sound killer.

Problem is I can hear "ghost notes" on certain strings/notes. It's mainly when I play certain notes on the low E and A it sounds as if the amp generates an octave below on certain notes.

Any ideas what that could be and how to fix it?

Thanks a lot!

All the best,
Dan

Hi!

Im not an expert, but it sounds that you have problems with your cabinet.
I now that some Marshall cabinets are famous of making that "double octave" sound.
Try switching your cabinet, thats my suggestion.

"Cone cry" might be your problem.Try changing speakers or actually first connect the speaker output to another cab.

Definately filter caps. Bass is most effected. Cone cry usually occurs high up on the strings. Get a cap job!
