Some tube amps, like the Fender Silverface Princeton Reverb, do not have a pot to adjust the bias. Several times, I read in forums, that you can simply change the tubes without the need for a further fine-tuning of the bias. Actually, this is wrong.

They can be carried easily and they are so much more than just a little toy. Perfect for a jam-session at home or for recording.
