joe Plate glow in deluxe reverbs 6V6s .
The 6v6s don't seem to want to bias up.The red glow wants to stay anywhere I take it.What should I look for? Thanks joe.
And now, a word from our sponsors:

What is your bias voltage range without the 6V6s?  
What about with the tubes?  
I'm thinking either your PI->6V6 coupling caps are leaking or your bias supply is sick or dead.

Disregarding any  
-real- problems,  
be aware that certain  
us-made 6v6s will normally  
show a [faint] vertical red stripe  
at opposing sides of the plate when  
all is well.....
