any recommendations for new tubes for it. not too expensive hopefully. Would also be great if it kept the big shape that the power tube has.

Im sure allot more thinking went into tube design than how you want it to look.........

NOS RCA 6SN7GTB w/ Black Plates for the preamp tube; can generally be found ~$20 Old-New Stock on eBay or ~$60 from an actual dealer [which generally you can get tubes up to your spec for that much money (balanced triodes, high gain, ensured matching tubes, etc.)] is pretty much what I've heard as a cheaper replacement for the stock tubes, and if you want to go more expensive you can get a smoked glass one.
NOS RCA 6SN7GTB w/ Black Plate from Tube Depot - https://www.tubedepot.com/products/rca-6sn7gt-gtb-black-plate Pretty much the same tube but on eBay - http://www.ebay.com/itm/6SN7GT-RCA-VINTAGE-TUBE-WITH-BLACK-PLATES-NOS-IN-BOX-/262801780368?hash=item3d3034ee90:g:bi4AAOSw5cNYdQnp

smoked glass and black plates are to increase thermal dissipation right?

(don't quote me on this) but from what i've heard, yeah, especially since i'm pretty sure those tubes draw more power than the stock ones do
