FDP Forum / Fender Amps: Vintage (before 1985) / I now have 3 amps with the same problem.

No bass response

'66 Showman
'67 Dual Showman
'15 Showman 500

All three have been serviced recently and have failed again. I play bass these amps thru the normal channel. There is no boost in the bass freq' above "5" on the bass knob.

The '66 and '67 have recently had all new tubes installed. The caps are only a few years old and the tube sockets have been cleaned and tightened.

???? Help !
