Will you please explain technically how a grid stop resistor stops music?
And please just stick to the technical facts, I'm not interested in your subjective opinions.

"Still Working the Problem"
Anyone who says tubes only oscillate as a result of bad wiring doesn't know this subject matter. You might as well ask a child in a sandbox to explain molecular cohesion.
Buy Chinese. Bury freedom.
2 Things that I totally disagree with, One is the DC filament debate
Both DC and AC can be done wrong IE(HF AC Heating) but when DC is done right IMO its a tough act to follow I promise you
The other is "RF" stopper/damper resistor, anything can be done wrong using inferior A musical resistors, but when done correctly there is nothing added or taken away.
But I digress use only if you have very hi GM tubes 6dj8 comes to mind
There are a lot of amplifiers using these hi gm tubes and they have harsh false detail of sound, prob because of the HF oscillations.
There is so much RF flying around today that IMO almost all tube amps should utilize them.
I engineer my amps with half theory and half "human engineering" my ears tell me much more then my test equipment ever will that's for sure :)
Think positive thoughts and be kind to everybody
