and no feedback please! It will reduce too much gain and probably improve nothing in such a small amp.

And by the way, one more thing:

6F6 is very sensitive and overloads earlier than 6V6, so you don't want too much gain. Even 6SL7 may be too much, you may need a grid-stropper resistor on the 6F6. 6SJ7 should work okay. Or use a 100K or 250K volume pot (instead of champish 1M) before the 6F6 - I'm afraid with 1M you might get some oscillations at maximum volume.
