The C12n sounds very punchy, wide and deep in a 2×12″ cabinet.
Five fundamental tricks to create the holy grail of Fender tone Here is a video demonstrating the effects of some of the mods and tricks described here.

This mod does not alter the tone significantly when amp is played clean or when only the power amp section distorts.
You’ll have to increase the volume setting to achieve a similar volume as before.
Yes of course some have the mid knob and bright switch while others don’t.
All these ab763 amps with reverb has the gain stage in the reverb recovery circuit which the non-reverb amps don’t have.
The blackface Bandmaster is therefore ideal for those who look for a pure Fender clean sound without making ones ears bleed.
The blackface and silverface Bandmasters are medium/big sounding amps with a flexible speaker impedance of 4 ohm, allowing anything between one and four speakers (8 ohm each) to be connected via the main and/or external speaker jack.
The vibrato channel in the Bandmaster is even more clean than the Bassman because of the vibrato circuitry loading the signal chain and reducing the gain level in the premp section.
Hence, the AA864 Bassman normal channel has more preamp “juice” and reaches the sweet spot at an earlier volume knob setting.
Not only is there more action in the preamp section, the silverface Bandmaster Reverb also has less attack and less clean headroom in the power amp section due to the tube rectifier.
