Re: Tremolux bias mod
Without knowing which schematic to use, I can't say exactly which resistor to remove, but they all look pretty simple. The object of the game is to;  
1)Remove the paralell resistor from the bias filter capacitor. Usually it appears to be about 33K paralelled with a 25uF/50VDC capacitor.  
2)Replace it with a 27K resistor and a 10K pot.  
3)If the range isn't enough, try 33K with a 10K pot.  
Simple, and it will work, although why modify a '62 Tremolux? (Sigh!)
