removing it means , eliminate it, snip the ends of the resistor or desolder it. NO jumper needed.

From our (http://thetubestore.com/jan6l.html) review of the JAN-Philips 6L6-WGB tube: "These puppies rock and would sound great in any setup where you want punch, clear highs and a tight bottom. [...] Very nice harmonic content, rich and deep. These bottles rock and would sound great in any setup where you want punch, clear highs and a tight bottom."
Here's an interesting side note: the JAN-Philips 6L6WGB tube has the identical internal construction as the Philips 7581A tube (the industrial version of the 6L6GC tube). The difference between these two tubes is only the size of the glass bottle. Although you may not get a 7581A's 35 watts out of the 6L6WGB, you can certainly get 30 watts without any problems. These are super durable tubes made for the US military in the mid '80's. Their specs are not the same as earlier 5881 and 6L6WGB specs from the 1960's. So to get to the point, the JAN-Philips 6L6WGB tube will work perfectly in any amp requiring a 6L6GC tube. Do not worry about plate voltages over 400V with this puppy.
