no

For various reasons we run the tubes at a relatively low plate voltage and with lower-than-usual heater voltages.

I HAVE gotten jolts from repairing vintage hi-fi, tube guitar amps, and radios. A miserable job that almost no one wants to do--especially because the owners of said equipment consistently refuse to pay technicians a "living wage".

If anyone is able to answer your question, then the answer is 99% going to be "no" because electrocution means to kill via electricity.

Thats fair!

My grandfather was a television repair man way back when. He definitely had his fare share of jolts. I think of a product can’t hurt you in some way it’s probably not worth selling.
