Hey guys, im going to be changing the tubes on my Lil Fokker for the first time since i bought it and i noticed it doesn't have rear bias test points like other Diezels. Before i crack it open does anybody know where or have some shots of the biasing test points? Im going to continue using KT77's ( just love the way they sound on diezels ) and would just like a little info before going in. Thanks again.

If you've not biased an amp via the transformer before... I'd recommend investing in a bias meter with the attached socketed probes.

The Fokker has 4 1k resistors built in to measure the mV to ground. That's how you do it.
Don't hurt yourself, man!

Thanks for the advice guys! Since i've changed filter caps before i'll give the resistor method a shot. Thanks again guys, i wish there was a +rep for members like on other forums.

The resistors are already there. You just need a multimeter.
