|Bruce /Mission Amps||Re: Cathode Bias / Fixed Bias Switch|
IMHO, in this 5E3 circuit, I think the cathode bias sounds the best... plus the B+ voltage rises about 20vdc when you switch to fixed bias.
The brownface Princeton has:
1.) fixed bias...
2.) a totally different volume control
3.) a single channel (no interactive volume pots)
all four of which completely changes the way the amp sounds and feels when being played!
It's a great sound, as is the brownface Deluxe, but they are different amps.
