I've employed the switch rknize has posted about. It's switches between 6 different bias resistors. And I roll 3 different rectifiers. jj 5ar4/gz34. an old RCA 5u4gb and an old RCA 5y3gt. Between the bias selector and the different rectifiers I can pretty easily adjust to the proper current. for the 350b on my SSE the 5y3 with 430 ohm cathode bias resistor works well.

I've settled on the Electro Harmonix KT88's. The best of everything. I've not thought about changing tubes since.
