Looking for ideas... 50W OPTs

Hello all!

I have recently acquired a PT(2x6,3V 3,5A) 340V and a bias winding and two OPTs 50W UL 3.5K, they were original intended for a EL34 PP, but as I already have such a amplifier I am looking to utilize some of all the parts in stock :)

I got
16x CCCP 6P45S (PL519 eqv.)
2x Mullard QB3/300
2x Phillips QB2/250
2x Phillips PB2/200

I have been thinking about 6P45S SE, but OPT could likely do more. Maybe 6P45S PP, just need some extra filament supply.

If I wanted to go SE with the 3 last mentioned tubes, I think the OPTs are too small and extra filament supply is needed for sure, and properly also new HV supply.

Ideas and advises on what road to take is welcome :)

Kind regards
Mads
