I am ordering parts for a 6v6 plexi build, with 3 preamp tubes. I will use SS rectifier. Do I need sag resistor, if yes, where it will be best to put in. Also, I am planning to use a Hammond 125E OT. Please advise if there is a better option OT wise.
also which secondary lugs should be wired for best output with 8 ohm V30 speaker.

I’ve tried Heyboer on two amp builds and Hammond on 1 SE build. I’ve not been able to tell if one has more punch or range than the other. I’ve not tried a CT version of the Hammond yet. It’s on my build list tho. Hammond is definitely the least expensive option.
These are personal opinions and should be taken as such. It’s extremely objective as to the tone you’re looking for. The best answer is to try one and if it just doesn’t have “that” sound, try another.

The first step is to test all your voltages. Then you can put your voltages into a calculator (or do the math yourself). For example: https://robrobinette.com/Tube_Bias_Calculator.htm
