Re: BF Princeton Reverb. Add 100 Ohm Heater/Lamp Resistors?
If you add the resistors you need to remove the center tap connection to ground. The resistors form a virtual center tap. It's almost like you're grounding the entire filament winding now. Fix this before you fire up the amp again. This can't be good for the power transformer and is probably the source of your extra heat.
