Questions about tubes and gear that glows. FAQ

RE: 450v plate and screen?

Is the 24 ma. plate current or cathode current(which includes both plate and screen current)? And what's the screen voltage on the amp?

4 or 5 ma. of screen current might push the total tube dissipation up to or over 12 watts and may cause some discoloration in some cases.
