Re: Info on tube imp
John. Book says 3,5-4 kOhms for EL34 and 5,6 kOhms for 6L6GC. In practice I think it isn't very important in guitar amps, more for Hifi applications.  
I think it's quite OK to use the same OPT for both tubes, someware around 4 -5 kOhms.  
I have swapped from EL34's to 5881/6L6 in an Amp, and it works just fine. I just had to rebias it.
