My idea was to have a switch from triode to UL to pentode, see attached image. Can you see any reason not to, I mean, why not? If it sounds bad I guess I'll just never use it
Can I go with a 100Ohm 0.5W resistor for the pentode path also or should I size it up since the current in the tube will be higher?

It seems there are plenty of ways to do it, I figure I'll just use spare components not used for the proper configuration (triode and UL). A 1k resistor to B+ and a 120u cap to ground perhaps? I have a few old 6L6s to try it on from my trusty mesa guitar amp, should it end in fireworks...
