EL34's are rated for 800volts on the plates. Music Man amps are class B amps....they run the screen much lower, also the Cathode to plate voltage is actually only around 550 or 600volts.
As far as lower the B+.....you can use a zener to lower it maybe a 100 volts or so. I've never tried to get that much voltage drop with a zener, but maybe someone else on here has. You could hunt for a lower voltage tranny too.
