Re: Fender Hot Rod Deluxe
The HR amps include a bias adjust trimpot right on the main board as well as 1 ohm resistors between the power tubes' cathodes and ground. These, of course, are located on the separate power tube PCB and are marked as "bias test point".  
I have an HR DeLuxe and don't really care for it much. I've replaced the stock Groove Boobs with Svetlana SV6L6GC for some improvement in tone. Also, I replaced the driver/PI with a 12AT7. I've done quite a few other mods on the PC board (and it's a pain in the a$$). It still doesn't sound like I want it to. I'm ready to tear it apart but probably I'll just sell it.
