Default SE OT power tube suggestions please!

Hi all!
I got hold of 2 NOS Peerless Se OT's. They are 2k primary into 12 ohm and rated at 25w. Can anyone suggest a power tube that would work well with this load as a se amp or parallel se. I'm thinking KT88 se.Too low?
Thanx!
Mario.

For KT88, too low metinks. Also, think about them as 1kΩ into 6Ω (most of "normal" modern speakers).
