I have no experience with the KT88's but, I've used JJ EL34's and had the same problem as you. I switched to SED winged "C" EL 34 tubes and have had no problems at all. From what I've read, JJ tends to have a lot of quality problems. They sound good but, I'd stay away from them and change them all immediately before they damage your amp.
