Re: Cathode Bias - Tone Opinions Please
1. You lose the vibrato feature  
    That's what I always thought, but in a previous thread tboy pointed out that you can just ground out the point on the PR vibrato circuit where the bias voltage would be coming in. (You'd use a double throw switch to select between the bias feed and ground.) If I had a nickel for every reference book that says that you lose the vibrato with cathode biason the PR, I'd probably have enough money to get a glass of water at Starbucks!
