437 volts); this may have gotten higher after 1971, but into the summer of 1971 I'd expect the plate voltages on 6CA7s to be down substantially from the YBA-1A; have the chassis sliding-in ala Fender.
Last versions have that easily identified rubber and 'chrome' molding running around each end of the head cabinet; mine is from 1971 and is this last version; 1972 models have no choke; [a 1978 is] black with the black plastic fabric and [has] the baby bumper trim, [it has] two 6CA7 and three 12AX7A tubes in it [and] no fuse holder, just a red reset button I put Mullard EL34s in my YBA-1.
I caraked open the top on my 1975 YBA-1 just to look, and sure enough it's a 68K.
(Dave, Nov 11, 2014) - corrected version (Brian, Craig, Dan Lear, Dave Rutherford, DCloud1050, Eric Knudsen, Glen H., Greg, Jay Rogers, Jonathan Krogh, joth, Kraig Olmstead, Moon Keith, Ron Waters, Tim Casey, Tony Flagg, Vernon Fitch, viva Analog at bc.ca/~jc) Features Two channels (bass and guitar), two inputs for each channel, upper inputs are slightly attenuated; Treble and bass controls, a "tone expander" section with low and high knobs (according to Dan Torres, these are actually midrange and presence controls); there are two volume knobs that can be blended to get different sounds.
These mods are worth doing to any Signature/Bass-Master, IMO.
My YBA-1A [...] uses 6550s and it's the best rock bass head that I've owned.
) loud as hell class A circuit so there is little distortion, sounds very punchy and clear very mechanical sounding; SRV and Hendrix heads need not apply.
If you are looking for something original sounding and with a good bit of style, this is it (if you can find one)!
Reliability It's a risky proposition for repairs Old and still going strong Price I bought my YBA-1A [used] about 15 years ago for USD.
[...] The 2nd [used] one I bought off ebay [for] 5 USD was totally moded for guitar with extra pots on the back [...].
I've used it regularily throughout the years, gigging throughout the Detroit area, and later in the E. A plate load of 6K8 would have essentially zero gain and probably lots of other problems.
