Yep. You'll lose the highs when your power tubes wear out.
5 years is a long time for EL34's. I'd say you'll
definitely notice a tone improvement by installing new ones.
As far as the biasing procedure goes I grabbed this from Dr. Tubes Website:
"The EL34 tubes are biassed at 40mA each. To adjust the bias, turn the bias pot (PR1 22kÙ) so that the voltage between pins 1 and 2 of CON2 (BIAS) measure 80mV (= 80mA over 1Ù)"
Of course you're going to need a digital multimeter to do this.
I'd recommend you try some of the new JJecc803s in your preamp. I have em in my Rivera and love em.
IMHO, Sovtek 12ax7 have just about the deadest tone of any tube of that type. They are rugged though.
