Has anyone used an opamp to split phase for a tube amp?

That point was already passed. If an opamp can drive a KT88, it can certainly drive the much easier load of an EL34.

Nope. Don't agree with most of petertub's post, but have to say that driver tubes are typically an already very small portion of a tube amp's cost.

Hi artosalo, in case that you have missed, Mos57 described a delay related issue of a similar op amp splitter on post #15 newbee-phase-splitter-question which RJM1 offered solution on post #25.
I repost the picture here, bottom schema.

If this were built with tubes only, the circuit would become quite complicated and a lot of glass is needed.
That's a fun looking project, any chance you made extra boards?

Would you be willing to share the power supply schematic as well?

I have some extra boards.
There are separate high voltage power supply/regulator board and low voltage regulator board.
