Finished up the build, go to test voltages, all pretty good -- a little high, but probably my wall voltage --except for pin 2 on the 12AX7. Should be 160, getting 281. There is a 100k Ohm resistor supposed to be dropping from 252 (I get 285) to 160 Vdc, but it just drops from 285 to 281. With the pin end disconnected, I get the same drop over the resistor, so I say -- aha! I'm not drawing any current. Checked the socket, and swapped out the tube - no difference. Tried a different 100k Ohm resistor - no difference. Put in a 1Meg resistor for S&G, voltage barely dropped. The Pin 6 with a 56k dropping resistor from the same spot works fine dropping to 210Vdc (s.b 198, pretty good). Likewise the voltages for the 12AY7, all dropping from the same place (preamp filter cap). Amp make a light hum, and tapping on 2 & 6 on the 12AX7 makes healthy pops, but not getting much out of 12AY7. Plugged in, signal is very low, rattley and distorted. Not my first amp, but this is beyond me. Triple checked circuit, joints all good. Freaking out. Voltages (Voltage in parentheses are target): B+ at pin 8 rectifier - 383 (386) V4 (6v6): Pin 4 - 340 (342): Pin 8 - 23 (22) V3 (6v6): Pin 4 - 348 (342): Pin 8 - 22 (22) V2 (12AX7) Pin 1 - 281 (160): Pin 3 - 5.2 (1.4): Pin 6 - 210 (198): Pin 7 - 19 (19): Pin 8 - 51 (53) V1 (12AY7) Pin 1 - 132 (125): Pin 6 - 135 (125): Pin 8 - 2.2 (1.9) It's just weird to me that the same voltage from the filter cap drops nice-nice everywhere but there. Any ideas?
