I got the 1987x ReIssue from Marshall. Kick*** amp and everything but the dang thing blew an HT fuse on me the other day while I was being an idiot and running it into the same outlet as a computer. One of the tubes is now faulty. I'm gonna put Kt66's in it(a la Jimi Hendrix).

I don't wanna have to take it to a shop to get it biased and I relatively know how to bias an amp but I don't know where the bias knob for this one is(in chassis maybe). But I am tired of taking my amps to the shop to get em fixed. I know theres lethal voltage and you cab die but how do these guys get trained anyways? Any thoughts on my plan?

They look like this:

Since you relatively know how to do it, it shouldn't be a problem. You'll only need a multimeter of some sorts and a small flathead screwdriver with rubber/plastic handle. As for the voltage, just don't touch anything when it's on, and when your adjusting the bias pot be very careful and keep one hand in your pocket. Good Luck

...for the gigs im going to be playing its going to be 60% tone and 40% stage look, and I'd like the look of my rig to be able to back up its sound.

arent the 1987x's known for blowing Transformers? maybe you should get that checked out, maybe thats also a problem?

it hasnt blown a transformer i dont think, because it still turns on just fine and warms up the tubes. but the other dude, i havent heard a jcm in person so i couldnt tell you how they compare to my plexi. but if you get the 1959 or 1997x you wont be disappointed, im tellin you

Where did you dig this up? This is the first I EVER heard of such a thing, anywhere. Ever.
