EL34's have no problem with high plate voltages. In fact they are spec'd to handle up to 800 volts on the plate. The importaint thing is to not exceed their 25 watts max. plate dissipation rating.FWIW I'd be carefull because if memory serves me correct I had an early Mig 50 that had 500+ volts on the plates (pushing close to 540). I think you'd eat up EL34's pretty quick.
How about checking the values of the resistors with an ohm meter?Originally posted by JDW3
The amp is a Sovtek Mig-50. Model 001. The resistors have no color codes, so this amp is a bit confusing. How do you test to see if the PT is capable of powering the el-34 tubes?

A buddy has a 6l6 amp he needs converted to el-34s. I have read about this mod many times, but never done it, although I have done work on amps. Is there a page to directly reference this mod?
I posted this previously in the amps and cabs column.
