Hi valvusmusicus, (btw, we use our real names here, please check the forum rules)

I haven't fooled around with a Watkins in a long time but IIRC (and that's a big IF), there wasn't a whole lot going on down low. Maybe there's a high pass or shelf filter to keep the sound from getting boomy and/or muddy. It may depend on the delay too. Seems like the top end rolled off too but not as much as the lows.
You should inquire at;
