I have the same '68, but preamped to a SS Yorkville amp, which is also my bass rig - I just switch cabinets: For guitar, 1x12 at 8ohm draws 250w from the amp... for bass, I switch to two 2x10 cabs stacked in a column, total parallel load of 4ohm drawing 400w from the Yorky. These are two Yorkville Elite 400 PA speakers, the tweeters discoed to make bass-reflex cabs. The two 10" drivers in each are of some weird Italian make, each one rated at 4ohm/200w, wired in series for a cab imp. of 8ohm. They're not the cripest bass cabs I've played through, in fact they have to my ears a pleasingly growly, vintage early 70's Phil sound to them.Jon S. wrote:Hang onto that head. In addition to its excellence with guitars, it makes a heckava small club bass amp.
