Dating Fender Bassman

The most important thing to keep in mind when dating a Fender is the highly modular nature of the designs. Like Henry Ford, part of Leo Fender's genius was in optimizing the company's production efficiency. His guitars were built en masse by an entire factory, not a single luthier toiling over one instrument at a time. Need Help in Dating a Fender '59 Bassman 410 Reissue.

Day Wave - Knowledge Base (Headcase / Hard to Read)

2020.09.23 18:58 DayWaveGod Day Wave - Knowledge Base (Headcase / Hard to Read)

Aight, here is everything I know about Day Wave - taken all from interviews and photos available online and AMA's.
Day Wave is a solo project by the Bay Area native Jackson Phillips. He started the project in late 2014 after pursuing a somewhat successful electro-pop band called Carousel. The switch was made because he wanted to produce more guitar-centric music similar to the bands he was into at the time; New Order, Joy Division, The Beach Boys, The Cranberries, Smashing Pumpkins - so he started Day Wave.
He initially didn't know what to call the band until his friend wrote out a list of potential names. Day Wave was one of them, and it stuck. (Night Wave was an option, lol).
Headcase / Hard to Read / Just Give In + Never Going Home
Jackson wrote his first two EP's in his basement in Oakland; Headcase and Hard To Read. He had just purchased an electric guitar (telecaster), learned how to pick, and started writing Day Wave songs immediately. The first three songs written were Promises, Nothing At All, and Total Zombie. Promises has a different vibe than the other early tracks, it is more hopeful and positive, it did not make the first two EP's but his later album; The Days We Had.
The most successful song on the first EP was "Drag". Interestingly enough, Drag was almost scrapped while Jackson was working on it. It took a few revisions and some restructuring before he changed his mind. He didn't think much of the song but his manager really wanted to push it. It was uploaded to soundcloud and took off via hypemachine. Now it his most popular to date. In his AMA Jackson mentions he had a harder time writing Drag than any other Day Wave song.
During this time period he met Eleisha Caripis (Hazel English) at a book store after taking his synth off to a nearby store to be serviced. He discovered that they shared similar tastes in music and that she was interested in writing her own. They began meeting regularly to record songs, which ended up being English's double EP; (Just Give In/Never Going Home). Jackson recorded all instruments and provided backup vocals on the album
These three EP's were completely self-recorded, mixed, and mastered by Jackson, with the exception of Hazel English's vocals.
Instruments:
Fender Telecaster - 1964 AV Reissue
Fender P-Bass
Fender Jazzmaster
Fender Blackface Deluxe Reverb (Blackface)
Fender Bassman (Bass amp)
DW Kick Drum
Yamaha Maple Custom Absolute Snare - 6" or 5.5" (muted)
Roland TR606 - "Drumatix"
LinnDrum
Juno 6 synth (Broke later and got a Juno 60)
Shure SM57
Sennheiser e835
TEAC A-2300S reel to reel (Vital to the semi lo-fi sound)
Software:
Logic 9
Waves GTR Stomp (Spring Reverb and Reverb)
API 560
CLA-3A
All instruments were recorded hot through the TEAC A-2300S which really pushes the analog saturation. Drums were recorded as one shots of the kit he owns and sampled over top of 606 samples.
Pedals (Used live):
Juno - Cathedral Reverb
Guitar Pedals:
Sludgehammer Fuzz
Tone Candy Spring Fever
Mooer King Ensemble Chorus
Mooer PureBoost
Influences:
Diet Cig - Over Easy EP (Strumming patterns)
Total Zombie - Disorder Joy Division (Guitar lead line)
We Try But We Dont Fit In - Perfect by Smashing Pumpkins (Lead Line)
Hazel English - Control - Dreams by The Cranberries (Lead line)
Touring members;
Jackson Phillips - SingeRhythm Guitar
Kevin Friedman / Alex Lasner - Lead Guitar
Henry Moser - Bass
Jack Moser - Synth (Henry's brother)
Nick De Ryss - Drums
Jackson met Henry in middle school and they played in a few bands together growing up - eventually transitioning into jazz music. Jack is Henry's older brother, I believe Nick and Alex were friends from middle / high school as well. Jackson met Kevin in college - I think they were roommates.
Will continue as I have more time

2020.05.05 20:52 WhenTheRainsCome Amp and cab sim pedals - what's good in 2020?

I've been out of the loop for a couple years, wondering what's new, good, hyped, overhyped in Amp in a box pedals. My up-to-date info stops at the first wave of the micro Mooer amp pedals. Seems like there was a lot of new development happening in amp sims, cab sims, IR, especially in pedal form.
What I'm looking for specifically is a pedal board friendly option for a hobbyist, new dad, few-hours-a-week to make music lifestyle. My primary motivation is to get consistent recording tones while still having my board in play and never having to make a DIY iso box and futz with mic positioning..
Edit: Went with a Torpedo CAB M, with a view that I can mix and match that with various amp-in-a-box pedals. Keeping those separate effectively gives me FX loop based on where I put the preamp ahead of the poweramp simulation.
The first preamp pedal I ordered is a Catalinbread SFT v2. I'm excited!

2019.01.08 07:56 WhiskeyRanting RDA Recap - January 7, 2019

Oh! Right! This is a thing I do. I'm putting down the Switch.
Hello all you beautiful people, and welcome to the Radio Dead Air Recap. As the name implies, this is where your humble narrator attempts to chronicle all the music played, topics discussed, and insanity unleashed on Monday's Radio Dead Air - just in case anyone can't make it, or can't remember the name or artist of a particular track.
This is technically the second show of 2019, the first having been the second half of last week's show. If you missed it for a New Year's party or can't remember for whatever reason, go look at the recap u/Am_I_Devo posted of it, and don't forget to thank them for this week's links. They do good work and should be appreciated for it.
Everyone back? Okay, cool. This is your weekly RDA Recap - as always, enjoy yourself, and let me know if I've made any mistakes with link placement. Let's dive in.

FIRESIDE 2
Kevin Smith is rebooting Jay and Silent Bob for Netflix. Nash doesn't know how to feel about it and neither do I. "Clerks and the View Askewniverse, that was a Time and a Place. I don't know how they're going to patch it all together and make it relevant to Now. If it's a reboot about reboots, that's interesting. I don't know! I'm willing to give it a chance."

Some bill paying ensues. We here at the RDA Recap fully endorse the show's sponsors, because we love them.

FIRESIDE 5
"I am going to keep trying to do mouth things on the computer for strangers. I'm bizarrely eloquent when I'm sleep-dep, and it's not in a good way. It's like eloquent stupidity. I phrase my idiocy in a pleasing fashion. Sadly, this is a life skill in the twenty-first century."
New Doctor Who! It's a Dalek episode. "But it's a Dalek episode in...the take on the Dalek was so unsettling, deliberately so, that was the point of it. [...] Fuck, someone's gonna have nightmares. And they're gonna enjoy them, because they earned them." Despite being a Dalek episode, they kept it small-scale, no grand universal bullshit. Just a Dalek being a threatening monster.

2017.06.06 18:34 The_Blue_Courier [GEAR] Rommate got a new Strat so it was time for a family photo.

https://imgur.com/gallery/JWcx3
Someone asked to see how i hang my guitars. I figured I'd show off the whole group in an effort to add content to the sub. I wrote a blurb about everything in case anyone was interested. Not much but better than nothing.
To hang them i took a 2x8x12 construction grade board and stained it with whatever i had laying around. 4 string swings later and finding some studs and ta-da.
Starting top left:
Fender P bass, found it at a local antique shop. Paint job is awful but it does the job for when we need bass.
Fender Stratocaster Mod Shop: Roomies new axe. Ordered it from Fenders mod shop. Took maybe 3 weeks to get here. Loaded with Texas specials. Arrived an hour ago and he's at work and hes dying to play it.
Fender Stratocaster Mexican: Roomies old Strat. Just a standard.
Gretsch Center Block: Hollow body loaded with Filtron Black Tops. Sounds great, not overly feedbacky.
1963 Fender Stratocaster: Posted here before and got the correct date. It was my grandfather's and i love it to death.
Fender Stratocaster Mexican: Standard Strat. It was my dad's and ive been "borrowing" it for the last ten years. Was my one and only for awhile, put noiseless single coils in it and put a push pull pot in.
Fender Stratocaster Elite: My new Strat. Best guitar ive played. Humbucker in the bridge. S1 switch. Little button the switches to the bridge and boosts it.
Shecter Hellraiser Solo Special: Active EMGs. Doesn't compare to the new strat. Trying to sell her.
Taylor 114 CE: Great acoustic and i recommend it. My first solid top acoustic but looking to upgrade to maybe a 600.
Martin Custom X Series: Roomies acoustic. Better than what he had but admits he likes my taylor better.
Takamine G series: Not the best 12 string I've ever played but fills the need for a 12.
Mitchell Acoustic: My first guitar. $200 10 years ago from guitar center with my dad.
Fender Bassman reissue: 50 Watt tube 4x10. Doesn't sound good until its annoy the neighbors volume.
Peavy 6505: Attenuates to 1, 5 or 20 watts. Great little head in my opinion. Jealous that its my roommates.
Blackstar 5: 5 Watt tube amp. Nice little amp. Wish it had more channels but not a big deal.

2015.11.22 02:56 Ray_Swarles Need help dating a Fender Bassman Ten!! Thanks!!

Hey there guys! I hope you are all surviving the beginning of winter (if you live in the northern hemisphere!)
I just got a quick question. So fate has it that a silverface bassman ten has fallen into my possession. I would just like to find out what year it was made. The two numbers that could be serial numbers are...
I looked around and came across this website
http://www.superiormusic.com/page195.htm
BUT neither of my numbers really fit into the codes. The serial number that starts with the 'A' only has 6 figures.
Any help would be awesome. Thanks!
