Re: Help with bias please...
The real question is whether they have adjustment pots; fixed bias doesn not necessarily mean "non-adjustable." All of my fixed bias amps have a pot which I tweak while testing the amp (I don't do both at the same time since this is DANGEROUS; I play a bit, put the guitar down, tweak the pot, play some more). With two people this is VERY easy to do. Now if your amps are non-adjustable (ala Mesa Boogie or later SF fenders) it's quite a bit more work though these amps can usually be converted to an adjustable bias pretty easily.
