Default tube bias pot question

hey people, i was wondering if a bias pot has to have a certain voltage raiting to work and not overload, because my amp bias runs about -60 volts or better (120 watt 6l6 tube).

Just about any good quality (not sub-mini) pot will work.

Default wattage rating

Also watch your wattage rating of the pot. I'd say at least 1/2 watt. A 10 turn would be a good choice, easier to adjust!
