    Do we have the schematic on this, and like you could post it?

    What pots do you have on hand? If you have a common 1 meg pot, try it in the circuit. It surely cannot harm anything, and if the...

    A "dirty" switch does not mean mud and grease, it means electrically dirty. Dirty switches can look good as new.

    The bulb limiter is a very useful tool, but you cannot rely on voltage readings taken while on it.

    Yes, the hotter you bias the tube, the more current it draws. That current comes ultimately from the wall outlet mains supply, hence the bulb brightens.

    C9? I don't see part numbers on your schematic.

    Your schematic shows a transformer part number. If those are not available, it seems to me you could mount a Fender transformer, and change the...

    The difference between 50 watts and 100 watts is only 3db. Whatever tiny power differences may occur will be barely audible at best.

    I suspect the main differences we hear is a bit of gaininess...

    Many share that experience. I believe some folks get differences they hear and have preferences, but if all is pretty much equal for your ears, then set it at the colder setting, and your tubes...

    You alter the amp to accommodate your tubes, or you alter your tubes to accommodate your amp. Those are your choices. Altering the amp requires soldering parts.

    I never heard it before. NC and NO are my letters for relays. MAke before break switch contacts are called "shorting" contacts.

    In my work in amusements we had pinballs FULL of relays, as well...

    Some people do not understand the difference between voltage ON a part and voltage THROUGH a part, so it bore further explaining.

    HAving discussed it with Peavey, for years they made their amps not adjustable. They designed amp with the tone coming from the preamp, and expected the power amp to be clean, loud, and reliable. ...

    Your typical Fender amp is cooler than 70% as shipped.

    In my experience, the super gainy Peavey 5150 sits at about 11-15ma idle current. SO maybe 7-8 watts, so about 25%.

    Neither is incorrect. What is incorrect is the idea that the bias is some super critical precise adjustment. You can bias an amp so hot the tubes get red hot from excessive current. What we call...

    Voltage is just a possibility. The thing to do is just measure for it. If we find it, we can figure out why it is there. If there is no voltage, then there is no voltage to explain. And we move...

    There is one more part. In the example above, the 25k pot can turn to zero. SO we replace the pot with a pot and series resistor. Instead of 25k pot, we use a 10k pot with a 15k resistor in...

    How would those stages know when you turned the control? I'm with Helmholtz, check for stray DC voltage on the noisy control. DC on a pot makes them noisy.
