I just acquired a 90s JTM45 reissue but the guy put a transformer rectifier in it (VOMIT). When I put the GZ34 back in, do i need to bias?

I'd say yes

as with a tube rectifier you're going to be getting quite lower voltages all over

Transformer rectifier eh?

....Yeah.

if you're going to "vomit" at a "transformer" rectifier, try to know what it is first.

There is nothing to vomit at, many players prefer solid state rectifiers in a JTM-45. Solid state rectifiers give the amp a more aggressive, JMP/plexi feel, have a less spongy attack and has a fast response time, thus does not sag on low notes at high volumes.

the old JTMs didn't have solid state rectifiers. why would i want that crap in mine? though i do love JMPs as well.

lol oops i meant transistor! now i know why you wrote that! hahaha sorry folks. dumb ass me.
