Or at least get some green and red electrical tape and use it as a label for the wires. I'll admit I did that a while back because I didn't want to have to unsolder/re-wire.

Great catch by 6L6!

@Chiptech: Does the bulb test now pass and have you started biasing the amp?

Default How durable are these

I have extracted Q3 and Q4. I'm wondering how durable these units are? /they seem ok and are built for heat. Any thoughts before i put them back in?

try them with diode/beep test

if they're not beeping between pins, they're most likely OK

regarding heat durability ........ from personal experience, I know that they're most sensitive to stupidity, everything else goes second
