Recommended Posts

I was looking into biasing my carvin T100. Pretty cool little unit since you can have diff tube types per side. I pop the top and notice that I have to send a screw driver through all these components to reach the pot. The manual says nothing about how to bias it.

 

Anyone here ever bias one of these crazy cool things?

I have never worked on one of these BUT, if I understand your description correctly, it might be a good idea to slide a piece of heat-shrink over the screwdriver shaft and shrink it to reduce the risk of shock or damage.

 

Why not contact Carvin or go to Carvin's user forum http://www.carvinmuseum.com/index.shtml to get better instructions for proper adjustment technique.

Did you figure out the best way to bias your T100? I'm going to try and bias mine for the first time

Anyone?

on the Carvin website at the bottom of the 'Technical Documents' page there is a PDF file called 'BrianD's Pictorial Guide to Biasing Tube Amps'. TBH, I have not looked at it, but it might be worth downloading before you start tinkering...:thu:

I hope that you are aware of the potentially lethal voltages present in the capacitors [which should be properly discharged before performing ANY work on an amp].:wave:
