No - It just improves filtering (reduces -ve supply ripple) without the need for huge caps.

Note also that the Mosfet source followers which drive the output tube grids have current source loads. Those current sources have huge AC impedance and the source followers have very small AC impedance looking into the source pin. These form a voltage divider for any residual -ve supply noise/ripple and that will be divided down to next nothing anyway.
So maybe an "overkill" but we don't mind "overkill" when it comes to power supply noise elimination.

Any opinions here on the best KT88 for the Baby Huey?

I know there are quite a few people here who are using Kt88s. I'm rounding up parts for starting my build and the only piece I have remaining are the Kt88 tubes.

Thanks, gabo
