Has anyone tried running EL34s in the class A sockets of a 2:90 power amp? I was reading that you can supposedly do that, and I can imagine it sounding cool...but I don't have any EL34s on hand and thought I'd ask around before ordering a quad of them.

Followup: Mesa tech support says you can do it safely but they don't think it'll sound particularly good because the amp will be running the EL34s colder than they like.

Anyone actually try this, or mod a 2:90 so you can tweak the bias to be more EL34-friendly?
