advice with valvo el84's

Postby lespaulblues » Wed 04/20/11 5:53 pm

Hi i bought 2 valvo el84's, they sound really good to me but
one of them is glowing more than the other at the top of the valve,
They are both the same colour at the base.
I had old sovtek's in there and they were same an even glow.
Is this ok.

Probably OK, as long as it is heater glow you are talking about - it's likely down to how much of the glass is covered by the getter metal.
