Can I use Tung Sol EL34B tubes in my Origin 20H amplifier to replace the stock EL34 tubes ?

Hello. 

I have a little problem. I play a rocktron voodoo valve preamp with a marshal EL34 100/100 power amp. 
The sound is really amazing.  He is very rich but not artificial like other rack elements. 
It sounsds like a more precise amp head. 
 
The only thing I don't like so much is one frequency in the highs.  Whatever I do this frequency is already there.  Not that she sounds harsh... But a little bit brittle sounding highs. 
 
I think it's perhaps the typicaly British EL34 touch ?
 
Anyway.... I play metal (lamb of god,  god forbid,  pantera,  alice in chains stuff .....
I know everybody's here will say "change the tube for 6L6" 😂
 
But I'm not a big fan of 6L6 ...too dirty Mids and not bluesy enough (I love playing blues and for that the EL34 are awesome. )
 
After many researches I read that KT77 tubes could be a good alternative for me...EL34 sound with the lows of 6L6 , more nuanced Mids and beautifull highs... Not brittle like EL34's. 
 
 
So here is my question. What do you think about that.  Is here anyone that tried and compare these 3 power tubes? 
What do u have to expect? 
 
 
 
'Scuse my English.... I'm french and I do my best ^^
 
 
 
Thanks to everyone here.
