I'm in a long process of building a transformer-coupled SE tube headamp. I'm leaning to 6C45Pi tubes, but am not sure if their sonic signature suits my needs. What I want:
Tight bass
Neutral midrange (that's why I don't want to bother with 6N6P tubes - they're just too fat)
Clear or slightly aggressive highs.

What tube would you suggest?

My transformers would easily handle DC current of 50mA or a bit more, plate resistance shouldn't be more than 3K.
The headphones would be K501 if that matters.
