Reducing output power
I'll be building an amp with a pp 6V6 power section in the next several months. I don't really want the thing to be much more than 15W or even less, if possible. Someone suggested that I reduce the screen voltage to reduce the output power. How does this affect the tone?  
 
I am not opposed to dropping the B+ to the power tubes and screens and running them in warm class AB/class A.  
 
Thoughts?

I would run them at 250V plate & screen like the Silvertone 1472. Plain ordinary class A.
