try it. You might like it. It won't hurt anything.
Book Of The Day The Ultimate Tone, Volume III by Kevin O'Connor
Have you ever wondered if there is a better way to build a Bassman, Champ, Plexi, an 800, AC-30, Bulldog or Portaflex? Or you wanted to build an SVT with off-the-shelf parts? How about a master-volume amp that doesn’t change tone with the master setting? Everything you need to know is right here, including: proper grounding techniques, wiring methods, and mechanical considerations. Eighteen chapters cover the “iconic” amps everyone knows and loves, with schematics and layouts for each, along with the technical history of the product. Eyelet-board and chassis-mounted tube socket construction is used throughout, for easy servicing and modding. TUT3 is very accessible even if you cannot fully read a schematic and is a "must have" if you are going to build an amp for your self.

That RCA blackplate 5751 is an AWESOME tube! I really don't think you will notice any gain difference, but it will sound fantastic!

5751s are sweet. I just wish I would have bought more when the time was right. I bought a few sleeves of NOS GE 5 Stars from a guy on ebay a few years back - 8 bucks a tube. now you can't even get them close for that. :( Oh well. Enjoy'em. I use them in just about everything now days.

I forgot to add that the 12av7s are generally pretty sweet too. You can get a lot of microphonic ones, but you can usually get them cheap.. I think they also go by 5965. Very nice tube for the $$
