Hi,
This is probably a silly question, It looks pretty simple to bios the rm100 I saw a video on it on youtube.
What I want to know is when biosing the amp can you do it with the amp on just standby or do you have to plug into a speaker box and have the amp fully on ?
The video does not show this.
Thanks

Yes your amp needs to be plugged into a cabinet and standby on play. Be sure your master is completely off.

I made the mistake of not flicking the the standby switch to on the first time I tried to bias my head. I bought the amp used off of ebay and when I saw no voltage on my volt meter, I saw red thinking someone ripped me off a few hundred bux, lmao. But yea, both switches have to be on and make sure you have the head plugged into the cab.

Hey - it depends on the type of tube in question (actually the tubes watts dissipation rating) and the plate voltage of the amp - for the technical stuff see the eurotubes generic bias link here:

http://www.eurotubes.com/eurotubes-Generic-How-To-Bias-Video-Marshall.htm

Randall / egnaters suggested bias's are as follows (for the RM100/RM50/Mod100/Mod50):

6L6/5881 28mV to 35mV
EL34/6CA7 30mV to 38mV
E34Ls 35mV to 45mV
6550 35mV to 45mV
6V6 (JJ Only) 18mV to 22mV

(KT88's are bias'ed as 6550's)

From the RM100 manual here:

http://geartunes.s3.amazonaws.com/gear/owners%20manual/RM100manual.pdf

And the Mod50 manual here:

http://www.bandslink.com/randall/Egnater%20MOD50%20Manual%20(3-07).pdf

Hope that helps - any questions let us know
