    ohms rating is incorrect , showman 15 cab = 8 ohms , dual showman head had 4 ohm output trans .

    Just got all the electrolytic caps, & tubes replaced, in my “68″ Fender Silverface Showman, one thing I noticed checking it: on the tremolo #2 channel the gain in lower, and the bass knob has to be up or there is no output (on the #1 channel, treble & bass can be on 1 setting and still get output)… is that normal?

    These are quite possibly the greatest amps ever if you are after CLEAN. That’s my amp in the photo up yonder. it punches you in the stomach when the volume is pushed. I’ll never sell it. And they are a bargain!
