I wouldn't bother hiring an electrician. If it continues to be a problem, see if you can borrow a power conditioner from somewhere and try that. You could buy one with less than you'd spend on an...

That was what I was going to suggest. I run an RP1000 the same way with my amp and if you don't have the patch set up to use the send/return (your actual amp's preamp) it will use a simulated preamp...

All joking aside OP, changing tubes is really no more difficult than changing a light bulb. They go bad after a while so you get some new ones and plug them in. As mentioned, 6505's don't need to be...

What amp is it? I assume they would have sent you a matched pair or quad so you should be fine to just plug them in and let 'er rip. If not, send it back and get a new one if it blows up :cool:

At that price you are paying for the seller's efforts to turn the combo into a head. If I were you I would either get the 6505+ combo for less money or the head for a little more.

Sorry, I mistyped. I meant to say I used them for C# standard and drop c. I'm using in drop c or b most of the time though. If I remember right they seemed to be about right for C# standard.

I use 11-54 for drop C, but I used them for drop C# a while ago and they seemed alright. That would be where I would start and then go from there if they are too loose or tight.
