Blonde bassman - extra coupling caps?

Postby sergedeep on Sat Dec 31, 2016 12:31 am

I recently bought a 64 6g6b blonde bassman, and I noticed that a previous owner installed two extra coupling caps. Both on the normal and the bass channel an extra cap was installed between the plate of the last gain stage and the 470k resistor that goes to the PI. Any ideas why this may have been added? Is this likely to have a positive impact on tone, or should I change it back to its original state?
