Re: Who is correct? Bassman speakers

MN is right, it may be the same circuit (although it's not as the blurb 
states "voiced for guitar") it can't really be compared to the '59 as the 
main feature of the '59 BM (in fact '56 onwards) was the 4x10 speaker 
configuration and 2x 6L6's. The same circuit was used on amps other than the 
BM, the '59 Twin has the exact same same circuit as  do early Marshall amps 
and PA's. If you take all the master circuits, reverb etc off of the Blues 
Deluxe, Blues De Ville you are essentially left with a re-voiced Bassman 
circuit - these amps don't sound like a Bassman. The "Bassman" circuit was in 
fact licenced to Fender by Western Electric. 

So if you're trying to nail the tone of the '59 Bassman you should be looking 
at 4x10's, American sounding if not American made.
