Default rebias guitar amp if using same tubes???

Hello, was hoping I could get some good input with this.

I just bought a used amp from a store. When they shipped they took out the tubes to protect them. They did label them so I know which tube is for what pot.

But do I need to check bias after I put them back in?

I would assume it was set properly in the first place, then you take out tubes for a few days and reinstall the same tubes. Not sure if that would throw anything off.

So far I have heard mixed answers, some say yes rebias some say ahh its ok youll be fine.

Sound is something I can tweak later on, right now the only thing preventing me from putting them back in and plugging in the amp is just that I spent a lot of money on the amp and am scared to do something to mess it up.

What do you guys think? Is it safe to go with out a rebias?

You are most likely safe. If it was adjusted prior, and the tubes are replaced in their original locations it should be fine. Changing/new tubes and aging in general are reasons for rechecking and adjusting the bias.

Most probably they will bias to the same point they did previous to the shipment. Unless some damage occurred somewhere. But was that an appropriate level?
