Biasing is very necessary… Too much will sound like crap, too little can damage the transformer (very expensive.) It’s not hard though, I’m sure your dad knows how to do it… I do my own biasing with a digital multimeter I got from Radio Shack for like $40, I think… Just gotta be careful not to get yourself killed… Lots of voltage in those things. <img> I’d leave it to your dad, unless you’re willing to learn proper electronic safety…

If he has trouble finding it, the bias deal on my amp is a small potentiometer that you have to turn with a screwdriver. It’s located on the bottom of the chassis, behind the tubes… Kinda hard to find. I’d bet that yours is in a similar spot… <img>
