"i want to know what rectifier i could use in place of a solid state rectifier. or if it is feasible idea or not. thanks again"

It's the closest thing to a SS rectifier while still being a tube. Most of the other rectifiers seem to "sag" or "compress" to much when you drive the amp hard in the 1987-1959 circuit.  
Hope it helps!
