I'd like to try EL34s (triode mode) in my Tubelab SE. Did someone try those tubes in that amp? What would be the bias voltage in that case?

I'm a total nube, but EL 34s work great in a Tubelab Simple SE. The Tubelab SE used direct heated triodes like a 300b.

My Tubelab Simple SE is almost completed and I will be using EL 34s. All reports say that they sound excellent.

I tried it at one point. I know that George did a ton of experiments with triode-strapped octals on the TSE before he designed the SSE.

The bias current will depend on your B+ (are you running 45s or 300Bs). Use this as a guide (from the SSE manual):
