    Well, my audio shop called to let me know my SVT is all done from servicing, and he had a question I need a quick answer for so I can get my amp back!

    I got the sovtek KT-88 power tubes, and he needs to know if you bias them any different than a standard 6550? I was also told it should be biased with oscilliscope biasing method....are there any certain numbers or values we are looking for here?

    Thanks in advance!

    I'm pretty sure (90%) that 6550s and KT-88s are biased in the same fashion.
