Default Got the Hum out!! Thanks All

After rebuilding the durn Pilot 3 times with no schematic I found it! Duhh-Too much voltage going to pin 6 Triod#1 on both 12AX7's. Put in a 39kohm resistor and got it down to 150v. Hum gone dead black background and real nice soundstage with excellent defination.
Thanks for all the advice.

Hum out of what? Is this post in response to a thread you previously started to discuss an issue with your amplifier? - If so this post should have been there, let me know what that thread is and I will merge this thread with that one.
