Re: I killed my Traynor - debug help?
A datasheet is here:

It looks like the tube is good for up to about 11W and a cathode current of up to 65mA. Depending on your plate (Va) and screen (Vg2) voltages and screen current, you can back out to your max viable cathode current.  
 
Sounds like you might want to start thinking about how to extend your bias voltage's maximum negative range.  
 
Maybe wire the bias pot as a 3-terminal voltage divider setup?
