Stiletto Trident power tube question

Post by TStone2 » Fri Sep 01, 2017 2:02 pm

I found 1 bad tube of a matched pair (outer pair) that was bad. I replaced it with a good el34 but it's not matched. This is only temporary, about 4 days. Will this be an issue ? Will be getting matched pair next week.

Tons of traffic in here. Ended up replacing all pre amp tubes, did not fix the noise issue. Found another bad power amp tube, almost went into full meltdown mode :oops: , replaced 2 of the three pairs with matched duets . So far, so good.
