It will kill the sound, that's part of the test, if shorting those grids to chassis has got rid of the loud hum you had with the volume controls turned down then remove the short from one grid and see if the hum gets loud again (volume controls still turned down) if it doesn't then remove the short from the other grid, that should tell you which grid the loud hum is coming in on, let us know which grid it is, ie: pin 3 or pin 4.
