RE: VR tube as bleeder in choke input supply?

IMO, the VR tube idea is very bad. If you can't tolerate the current loss and/or heat a proper bleeder resistor across the 1st cap. entails, use caps. that can tolerate the peak voltage produced by the power trafo. At turn on, the caps. can charge up to the peak voltage, but the rail voltage will drop, as the signal tubes start to conduct.
