Thanks Richie , cool 18 Watt forum !  
Re-uilding an amp with four EL84s i.o. two ain't no porblem . Did try a couple of pre-amps in an EL84 pp-amp like the '59 VOX AC15 , Matchless Spitfire and a Fender Blackface . Right now I do really like the '60 AC15/EF86 pre with a few tweaks ; fat , punchy and very dynamic .  
Guess I'm gonna build a VOX AC30/4 ( like the early ones with an EF86 pre ) .  
I'm also looking for some EF86s suggestions , during building & tweaking I did use some UOS Philips ones and my new Ruby ones are coming in in a few weeks .  
Just did try the Eko : tone-stack sucks ( can cause icepicky highs ) but there's a nice chunky tone in that OT .
