I am such a dumb ass, I am sorry guys. Here is what Bob wrote:
We are fairly certain the KT88 will physically not fit in the AOR 50, but for the record to use the KT88's you need to have at least 2 1/4" measured from center to center of your tube sockets because the KT88's are 2 1/8" in diameter. There would also need to be sufficient throw in the bias circuit to accommodate them, so they could come in around 55 to 60mA.
Here is what he said about his KT77s
The new KT77's would also be an option. These are not quite a tight as the E34L but tighter than an EL34. The 77's have even a bit more low end extension than the E34L's and they have a nice sizzle in the top end that is not brittle. The clean tone is very fat and full and the crunch has more of a chunk to it and it's very punchy but not quite as aggressive as the E34L. A great tube for rhythm and solo work.
