Spitfire with tweed Deluxe output stage
I've built a couple of Spitfire clones and I've been very happy with the results. I've been thinking about building a similar design with a Tweed Deluxe output stage (no NFB, cathode-biased). I've also been looking at the Fender 6G3 Deluxe as a possibility. Any comments?  
How much more grid drive will I need on the 6V6's to drive them to full output as compared to the EL84's? Is a single gain stage prior to the phase inverter (as in the Spitfire) adequate or will I need another stage?
