I have found that Biasing a lil on the cool side allows you to push that badboy alot Harder,if not a pedal pusher? Bias around 34ma it will cook!!! I had RCA Blackplates in the preamp section at one time it does wonders for the smoothness in the high end. Also dont be shy, try a GZ34 Rectifier you might Like it, I had the Bias set at 30ma , I dearly miss my Galaxie, I have Plans to have a 2x10 GaL One day ;D i know its in good hands, Did you get the 4x10 Loaded?

Thanks for the tips Jamie. I really like how it drives and sounds now at 30 so I'll likely keep it there with the new glass. Yep, got the 4x10 loaded with golds and greenbacks and it sounds glorious! :-D

Thanks Lee. I also use it as my gig bag. I keep everything in it including: mic's, cables, spare batteries, strings, multimeter, tool kit, solder and soldering iron, tape, mini tool kit, etc. etc. It holds a ton of stuff.
I picked the rascal up last year off epay 'cause I kinda collect old Supro gear and it matched my '65 Supro Big Star amp. I stumbled on the amp years ago; it's very cool and its pretty much in museum quality condition.

So after some time breaking in that glass, has there been much drift? Not certain if you are using a cathode reading for that 30ma with a Bias Rite unit or if you were using a shunt reading that the I believe the Doc's 27ma is based on. If it is the cathode reading, I think it would be right in the neighborhood of the suggested setting, since I've read that the shunt reading is an actual plate reading and does not include the screen current. My stock tubes still have a bright orange screening so I know they have been running on the cooler side and they've been in there since the amp was made on Halloween of 2007. That's right Halloween!

GuitarZ: So, I cranked up the privacy protection on my browsers, facebook, etc. I have to say I miss the music ads and such. I really don't need ads for watches and other random stuff. Maybe the internet knowing me isn't such a bad thing.

The Bad Poodle: I bought airline tickets online... now every few days i get emails that read "Your trip is almost here but aren't you forgetting something?? You don't have trip insurance!" and i'm thinking..."is there something i should know about your plane maintenance?"

GuitarZ: Reminds me of buying my Honda. When they tried to sell me the maintenance package, I said "Is your car not reliable?" Long story short my wife teamed up with the sales lady to buy the maint package. Never again!
