Biasing a Legacy vl100

Hi guys I have a bias probe and a meter and was wondering what all you guys do to bias the Legacy..
Ill be running el34s.
I saw the standby switch 100ma way but I was just gonna use the probe and see what ma you guys bias to as the carvin way says bias to 100ma with matched set which scares mw so I will use the probe and see what you guys with experience have done..
email me at [email protected] if you want..

It has been removed, I reported it. It was in literally in 8/9ths of the threads I read until the mods took care of it.
