EL34/6CA7 for 50W Super Lead

EL34/6CA7 for 50W Super Lead
Hello All,  
A friend of mine has asked me to help him retube his Marshall Super Lead (50W). He wanted me to add a gain stage =:-o but I have talked him out of it. :) I need some input regarding current production EL34/6CA7. Does anyone currently make a 6CA7 that truly is a beam tetrode as opposed to the EL34 pentode?  
He currently has Sovtek EL34's and 12AX7's. I'm going to give hime some of my Telefunken 12AX7's for the preamp, but I need some power tube advice. I have NO experience with the EL34/6CA7. Never been a Marshall man.  
I'm interested in the Yugo 6CA7, the Svetlana EL34 and perhaps the new Electro-Harmonix EL34EH tube.
