Update. Got a new speaker for the HH from Jansen, a Zomax P1550. This replaces an Eminence OEM POS I bought to fill the hole. TBH it was from a PA cab. I found out last weekend that I could lift the magnet off the frame of the Eminence. Not good. So in goes the Zomax, and already lovin' it. The HH H...

Not claiming to know anything, but when I had a P copy (Hondo), it had an open Kluson type which iirc could be dismantled easily and greased. I would not recommend CRC for anything that has been greased previously. It eats grease. Found out the hard way.

Just an update, I've just rejoined the Jansen club again. My first proper bass amp was a Jansen Blackface Bassamp 100 (or Bassman 100, can't remember, but it was built on tag strips - no circuit boards iirc) back in the mid '80s. Found out that the special components holding the special smoke in can...
Thanks for your input. I've not ever knowingly heard the Jansen preamp, just thought it might have been an overlooked future classic. There is a Jansen Crusader Magnum 220 in my price range that could fit the bill even better.
Alas, the preamp of my vintage 1978 HH Electronics combo is crapping out, but the power amp section is still fine. Thinking that it might be time to go for separate components, has anyone out there have any opinions on this Jansen preamp. I fancy the built in compressor/limiter, but is it any good? ...

I've actually got a copy of "Pulsing" on a kiwi music compilation album with me at the moment. It's called "It's Bigger Than Both of Us".There could be some of our members on it.

The 100 watt tube ones are pretty rare, most of the 100s had solid state power amps. My first proper bass amp was an all tube Jansen Bassamp 100 watter. To me it seemed so powerful with a JBL K140. Traded it in on a Holden Wasp and then went Solid State with my first HH VS Bassamp. Had two of these...
Bit of a home made look to that combo. Rack mount head = good. Speaker looks like a car sub = bad. Car subs are usually inefficient-below 90dB meaning more watts needed to produce a certain sound pressure level. At the right price it would be a good buy just for the amp.
