Another thing I do is keep the input cap as close to the input tube base as I can without picking up heater hum!
Also screen the input cable!

Also I put a 50K across the input to stop it floating!

Each resistor across an input / output, will be in parallel so 50K becomes 25K after connection!

Yes, what is D1 for? A diode is often put in this position in a DC coupled design with SS power supply, to stop the grid from being dragged too positive before the previous valve has warmed up. In normal operation it is reverse biased and has no effect.

Ugh, it's a relic in schematic which hasn't been fixed along with few other tidbits that I have mentioned already. It isn't present in the actual circuit, and neither is C3.
mod verb, transitive /mod/ to state that one is utterly clueless about the operation of device to be "modded" and into "fixing" things that are not broken; "My new amplifier sounds great so I want to mod it."
