Varies by mic and venue, Paul.
With my CM mics, I generally set up my Bassman repro with 12AY7 in V1
(as you describe), run bass from 4-6, treble 3-5, no mids, presence
7-10, volume around 3.
(I should mention that I'll be experimenting soon with using a 12AT7
or 5751 in V1).
With ThunderHarp mics, it's about the same, but I get much more out
of the tone controls than with any sort of vintage element. These
mics are much more responsive to the tone controls, so I'll exploit
When I had an EV605, it sounded tough with the Bassman. Go for it.
And when I had a 545, it was killer. That's a great combo right there.
Oh, and I like the sound of a GZ35 rec in there as well, but for
lower volume gigs, I'll typically use a 5U4GB.
It's a very versatile amp. Check out the #2 input for lower volume
gigs. And don't dismiss the Bright channel, either.
From one Mac user to another, have fun!

I have just purchased a '59 Bassman LTD. Big sounding amp!
I was wondering if anyone give me some advice on the best volume /
tone settings to use and which tube set up you think is best for it.
At the moment I have in the stock tubes with the exception of a 12AY7
in the far right preamp slot (looking from the back of the amp).
I am running a Boss DD3 into it as well sometimes. Usually I plug my
mic into channel 1 normal lead from channel 2 normal into the DD3
then out from the DD3 into channel 1 Bright.
Mics I am using are either an Astatic JT30 with MC151, or a JT30 with
a Shure Black Label CR.
I also have an EV605 and Shure 545SD, but I figure the bullets will
sound better with the Bassman?
