Thanks Chris,

Yes, it's the KEL84's components I may wish to explore. Any recommendations for cap or tube replacements would be gratefully received.. I'll clean all leads/contacts later (I think I have some 'dioxit' somewhere).

I can't recall the perceived 'boomings'' when I first used the KEL84.
