Preset Description

Here is a dedicated Blonde Bassman Lead patch (with my impression of an old Orange Squeezer compressor out front). A bit thinned out from the above patch. This is pretty close to dead on how I remember my friend\'s amp with a TS in front. (again you\'ll need to add the RW IR I specified in the above post to get it perfect). A little history lesson from an old geezer for you children who may not have ever heard these in person. The patch is based on the \'65 Bassman model, which was a very dark sounding amp in real life (see the recordings of Social Distortion - big BF Bassman users). The previous Bassman incarnation to the BF was the \"Blonde\" Bassman head. Very different sounding. Lots of honky mids and treble with only modest bass response (see the recordings of Brian Setzer, perhaps the most famous Blonde Bassman user).

Cab / IR Recipe

EDIT 08/28/11 – This patch has been rewritten for Firmware 1.05 and the posted patch features stock cab substitutions pre-installed.
