Tube arc

Sounds like a tube arced. The question now is, is the tube still running and is it going to do it again?

Pull the tube from the socket and take a look at it, compare it to the link below.

If the links are still good the question is then- will it do it again? If its a Russian tube, probably not if its running OK now. If its a Chinese tube, its likely to do it again.

So: replace the tube if the links are blown or if it is a Chinese power tube. If you have any questions just give me a holler.
