not well versed in reg tubes but found a neat concept with an 0c3 but need to learn how it works. i have a realistic SAF-24D that has a plate over voltage problem that i temporarily used a stack of 10 watt resistors to calm down but are now hindering output potential and taking away from low end impact of the amp. i wish to find an appropriate value reg tube to put in line as i think it will be more efficient with current and allow for more headroom in the amp. still new at the tube thing but i have a basic understanding of how this stuff works. any comments are appreciated and thak you in advance.

the amp runs 6BM8's for the outputs and the plate value can not exceed 390vdc but after the rectifier tube i can get swings of 410,430vdc depending on current demand from outputs. the transformer for output seam matched and cant find any failed pieces
