The reverb tube is microphonic. Just started the other day. I emailed my tech about it, he says I should probably replace the reverb tube.

 

Why are you bothering to get a NOS tube for your reverb??

Ebay has tons of cheap tubes w/ slight useage. Just be sure to check the feedback history.

I've also gotten some really nice telefunken and Genalex stuff off of there.

you rebias an amp, not tubes. although I'm pretty sure you won't necessarily need to worry about it so long as your power tubes are all matched.

the only problem is everytime I ask and want to know more this is the most common response.

 

I'm not gonna go be stupid and try doing something I don't know how to do.

 

I know probably the only way to learn more will be buy a bunch of books on the topic
