Question on long-tail phase inverter

Constantin Necrasov Question on long-tail phase inverter
This particular one is from a Fender Tremolux.  
There are four resistors there in the PI, between the cathodes and grids. Two 1 Meg, one 470 ohm and one 6.8K.  
Some other phase inverters  
list a 22k resistor instead of 6.8k.  
A 10k resistor is also observed in that position on some Bassmans.  
My question is: What is the cause and the purpose of such variations in the value of that resistor? What does that resistor affect?  
Thank you. :)
