Default Re: Battery eliminators

I remember reading somewhere, it might have been in the BVWS Bulletin a few years ago, that 6L6s in some jukebox amplifiers used to have 12v put across the heaters for a short period to warm them up quickly, to make sure you did'nt miss any of the music, depending on how long the amp' stayed on after the record finished, the valves could have been subjected to quite a hard life, but I don't know if they lasted very long.
