Question Low Water Pressure

Hi,
All the sinks and faucets in my house have great pressure - except for the bathtub on the first floor. I turn the hot and cold on - and I get a trickle. The house is 50 years old - and dont know much about the maintenance it has had.

Could the copper pipes need replacing ?
Could it be the cartridge/valves behind the handles ?
Could it be some sort of clog in the lines ?

Thanks for any advice for a weekend warrior,
Pete

Cartridge is probaly the culprit. Remove it and see if perhaps the "O" ring(s) are clogged. Before you pull it out, mark the top so you reinstall it in the same configuration. It DOES matter. Good luck.
