Re: 6SN7 - what should I use it for? :-D
Oh! you'd want to use a 6SL7 probably, that's an octal 6V equivalent of a 12AX7. :-)  
I used to have a matchless spitfire clone that used parallelled triodes - it sounded pretty cool actually. bigger in some undefineable way, and yeah extra gain due to the oversized plate load. the big bottles do always seem to sound 'fatter' as well aye, i wonder how much of that is psychosomatic?  
weekend of tinkering ahead, methinks :-D
