Have you read Randall Aiken's page on chokes in his Tech Info section?
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.

another grain of salt:  
Again I experimented in the past with henries. 20H in my circuit deadened the overall sound, made it real sterile in a pp el34 class a  
OT 3K4. I use now a 220 ohm resistor and 1K in series to the screen grids. VEry lively.

Sometimes it's helpfull to put a link in a post that suggests someone should go read something.

A person too lazy to type a few words into Google doesn't deserve to be helped.  
Get a clue, Nimrod.
