    Anybody have one? How easy is it to use? I'm no amp tech and don't want to be I just want to learn to bias my own amps to save time and money.

    Thanks,
    Chad

    Good because I just paid $65 for a tube swap and biasing. Do that twice and I could pay for the Bias Rite with VI option.
     
  5. How does it compare to the Alessandro Bias Meter? Scott, I thought you had one of those. Why the switch?

    Thanks,

    No, I had a Bias King from New Sensor.

    The Bias King could measure from from tube at a time; the Weber does 4 at a time.

    No brainer.
     
  7. Ok. Sorry. I thought you had the Alessandro model and "upgraded". I have that one and it does 2 tubes at a time which is just fine for me.

    I have the dual bias Alessandro. Works like a charm. Just plain simple. With the twin meters, it really simplifies a bias set session. Highly recommend.

    I like the Weber with the plate voltage read option. This makes it easy to know where to set the bias current at.
