Look 'em up at Frank's and see what they're good for.

You have several 6CD6s in there, I see. You can use those for audio finals, and make a really kick-@55 (70 -- 90W) amp, and without too much spec-busting. Being that these are horizontal deflection types, they're plenty tough enough for audio use; even an axe amp won't abuse these guys all that much. You'll probably have to get a custom wound OPT since the load tends to be a good deal lower than for most audio types since these were originally designed to pull big currents through horizontal deflection coils.

I used the down rated 6BQ6GTB for a project that could do 40W easy. The 30W OPT saturates before the finals actually clip. HD VTs rock!
