Thought I seen a R.B. video talking about
being able to swap EL34 tubes in a KT88 factory spec Shiva 20th.
Just rebias. Anyone do this?

Pretty sure you have to snip a resistor too.

I did. You have to clip a resistor to get the bias in range.

I wouldn't do it. The amp just works better with the KT88s. I had two of these, both sounded great, the KT's sounded better.

As soon as you said the resistor needs clipped,
I totally forgot that I did that to my Twin Jet.
10 mins later I put it back to stock KT88.
