A 12AY7 might be a better choice.

Too often IME 12AT7s are quite steely in tone.

NB it doesn't HAVE to be a 6072 hand-selected for super quiet, and rolled on a virgin's thighs, maate. It's not a microphone amplifier now is it?!

Basic 12AY7, should have enough gain and you can probably use less NFB, which can't hurt.
