Completely agree here. But I'd try to steer around those KT90's, since they are NOS now.  
Probably best to go with three KT88's or 6550's. The low impedance of the tranny means high B+ isn't necessary, or desired, so 6550's would probably be best in terms of cost.  
You COULD parallel three SV811-3's or 811-10's for the DHT sound... that might sound really good.  
One of these days I'll get around to doing something with that iron.
