Need tube recommendations

I have a jolida 1000 hooked up to my acoustat 2+2's.
They have electro harmonix EL 34 tubes. The owner of jolida told me two years
Ago that I could sub in 6550 tubes to get an extra 10w.
Should I move up to 6550 or stay with el34? And if I stick with EL34, should I stick with electroharmonix or get Millard EL34 or another tube?

If the trannies can handle it I'd go with the Winged C 6550s (formerly Svetlana from St Petersburg) and for EL34s maybe see what Psvane or TJ Fullmusic have. I ran winged c 6550s in my old amp for years, and run Psvane 300Bs in my new amp, I wanna try those balloon glass perf plate TJ Fullmusic 300bs next........

I ended up getting matched quad sets of Tung Sol L34's. I set up the tubes, sounded liked there was no bass, no depth. After about ten hours, they improved. My daughter thought the top of my amp was a little hotter than usual so I popped the cover up and rechecked the bias. I was surprised they were all around 520v. I reset them and they sound good.
