Help!!!Spitfire W/four diode bridge.

Help!!!Spitfire W/four diode bridge.
I completed my spitfire project today. I got no sound at all. I used a four diode bridge for the rectification. I am getting a negative dc voltage(-4.7) @ B+. I have 257vac coming into the bridge.  
Do I need a different kind of diode power supply configuration for this amp? Should I just break down and buy a new power trans. and go with tube rectification?  
Thanks in advance! Benjamin.
