A bias pot will make bias adjustment easier, but will not improve the amp
sound. It can be added at small expense to a BM RI. The original BM RI
has a socket that will accommodate a tube or solid state rectifier.
Lacquer on tweed does not improve the sound.
I think the BM RI "standard" is a fine harp amp. I compared a stock one to
the same amp with a Hoffman hand wired board with the same tube compliment
and bias setting. I could hear no difference. I recently had a line on a
Victoria Bassman at a great price. I compared one side by side to my
Hoffman board Bassman. To me the sound differences were subtle and did not
warrant the expense of the Vic. Now, I do hear differences in amps....
