Hammond 270DAX ?

JonesHammond 270DAX ?
Will a hammond 270DAX handle a pair of 5881s if you dont bias them too hot (cathode bias)? This PT is only rated for 90ma at 260v, I am only wanting to get about 25watts out of the pair. I know hammonds are rated conservative...but...tube manual suggests 2 5881s draw 88ma plus 5ma screen. There is only 1 Preamp tube drawing about 3ma, this is mainly a 6v6 amp but want to be able to switch in some 6L6 types.
