Back when I was fixing TVs there were a bunch that had that setup, typically
a 3A3 for a HV rectifier and a 6BK4 (?) for a regulator. If the set had been
running a bunch of years with no service, those two would be somewhat dark,
in terms of the glass actually turning a muddy color. The regulator was
*always* a lot darker than the rectifier.
