RE: Type 50 vacuum tube amp options?

DIY is really the best route, or custom if you are not a DIY-er. The 50 is a pretty uncommon tube so there are not many things built for it. That said, modifying a 300B amp to take 50s is not too hard if you are handy. Mostly a different filament supply and bias adjustment. Output transformers should usually work ok (if they are spec'ed right to start with), and also depends on the input grid resistor/choke.
