Re: Signal grid resitors values & output tube distortion???
If the previous stage supplied the signal from its plate then lowering the grid resistor will lower the gain of that stage. This will reduce output tube distortion. Some amps have lower values for grid resistors because they use low gain tubes (like 12au7) that are better for low voltage gain but higher current.
