I recently bought a matched pair of JAN Phillips 6V6's for my SF Princeton Reverb from the Tubestore.com. I've been using the amp for a few weeks, & today I happened to look at the back of the amp, & noticed that they both have a slight orange glow on the plates. (see attached photo link) As a test I cranked the amp up to 7, played a few power chords, & noticed as I did, the orange would fade. While the amp idled, the orange glow returned. During my normal playing volume, between 2 & 3, I see no difference at all. As another check, I put in the old tubes, & they didn't have the orange glow like these did.
Should I be concerned? Could it be a bias issue?
