Re: OK how do I calculate the values for it?
If itís like the 6G3 Brown Deluxe schematic on the Fender Field Guide i.e. 100k + diode in series from one end of the B+ winding going to a 22k with a parallel cap to ground the bias voltage will be half the average value of the transformer voltage x the resistor ratio.  
333/2/1.11*22/(100+22) = 27V  
The 333V on the schematic will be rms. 1.11 is the rms/average ratio for a sine wave.
