Hi Haakon  
I do prefer MercuryMagnetics OTs but they're not "cheap".  
Be sure to use new/fresh e-cap in the powersupply, a B+ from around 370 Volts.  
If you still have too much low-end after that you can change:  
- couplingcaps to 0.047 or lower  
- bypasscaps to 4u7 or lower  
- sperate the 1st cathodes by using 2 x 1k5//<4u7  
Hope this helps/greetings from the Netherlands!
