    Bias Wrong?

    So a year or so ago, I had my tubes swapped in my 2203. It came back sounding better than it had going in, but still not great. Well the other day I decided it was sounding too weak, and thought maybe I’d just swap the preamps, and try 6ca7s in the power amp. I set up my bias probe on the old...

    Paisley Or Euphoria

    I can't decide between the two. It'll be used for pushing a Marshall 2203 or 2555 and occasionally a fender hot rod deville 410 with my les Paul and firebird. I love the presence and mod features on the paisley, but also the three way on the euphoria. What would you do?

    Bias Resistors?

    I want to put some in my two Marshall's (jcm 800 and silver jubilee) so I can bias them up myself. Will a 2 watt 1k be alright? Does what it's made out of matter? Also is there any good article or place to read up on how to calculate the bias correctly?
