    Eurotubes - Marshall DSL-TSL-JVM "How to" Bias Video

    You guys with 201 and 401 amps have to take the amp apart to get the test points and trim pot. Here is a pic. Marshall recommends a setting of .675 volts for the 201 and 1.375 volts for the 401, I feel that the 1.375 is way too hot and recommend a setting of between .8 to 1 volt if you are using the test point and for the 201 to .400 to .500 is good. Here are some pic's of the 201 and 401
    When biasing a Marshall 201 for the JJ EL844 tubes since they only dissipate 9 watts you would bias them between .300 and .375 volts. When biasing a Marshall 401 for the JJ EL844 tubes you would bias them between .600 and .750 volts.

    Thanks bro, I'm looking at the new dsl40 though. I'm guessing the layout is different from the older models?
