Learned a new trick today I guess. I did like you suggested and put a .1uf Russkie cap and 1k grid leak resistor in front to the output tube and a 60k grid stop resistor going to ground from the cap. The plate volts jumped way up to 480, the grid volts went up to 48.1 and the plate current went to 65mA. Looks like I need to do some tweaking now, but at least I am in the ball park now. It's sounding better too. Can't wait to hear it when I get things dialed in. Thanks for the tip; this one will go in my notebook.
