Sizing OT. What if too big ???

Sizing OT. What if too big ???
Question on sizing an OT.  
I have a 35w 4300R output transmormer from a Dynaco ST70 stereo.  
Could I use this in a 6V6 PP guitar amp (hoping to get about 15 w output) or is it too big??  
I know that putting a too small OT will fry it but is there any problem in going too big.?  
Is it just the load Raa that is important or does the transformer have to be sized just right.  
Thanks for any responses.
