    I need to have my amp bias checked (and possibly adjusted) after replacing my power tubes. My usual guy is unavailable for a few weeks and I'd like to do this ASAP.

    Anyone from the Philly area know a good amp tech?

    Rick Emory at The Music Place in Berlin, NJ (maybe 30 minutes over the bridge) is top notch and a nice guy to boot. He has always done me right.

    Pudge,

    Bring it to my house. I have a digital multimeter and regularly bias my amp. What kind is it???

    I am only 5 minutes from Baba by the way...

    It's cake my man... Pin 8 and chassis ground. Same as my amps.

    Why don't you email my Baba?? Maybe we can all jam. I need some new rock moves! You and Baba can give me a refresher.

    I actually managed to bias the amp myself this afternoon. You were right, it is a piece of cake.

    Thanks!!!
