    Congrats on figuring out what happened and getting the amp up and running.

    Thanks for the perspective. Its been an interesting and educational journey. I loved most every minute of it. The help I've received has been very valuable to me. I'm obliged.

    Trying out a resistor to lower the voltage might be interesting. My concern is the tone and character of the amp.

    Concerning the popping I get when I tap the chassis - that's my next issue. I want to try to find out the cause. It'll probably be a week before I get my tubes back, and then I'll begin to run that down. It leaves me time to do some research.
