I just recently bought an ht40 Blackstar, very cheaply caused it has 6n3ce power tubes in it. I don't really like the sound of it, so I buy a pair of Ehx el34s. Can I simply put in it?

yes, but don't get EHX tubes, they suck. Grab a set of JJ E34L or KT77 to put in it

The HT40 runs on EL84 AFAIK tho, and 6n3ce (6p3ce actually, that n looking thing is a cyrillic character that's pronounced like "p") are 6L6 equivalents, so I'd get a set of 6L6 unless you were up to rebiasing the thing.

I looked at the BS page and it said it had el34 stock.

Some people hate JJ's, some the EHX's. I had JJ power, and preamp tubes in my Peavey Valveking. After i changed the preamp tubes to EHX, the amp came alive, had a totally different (and for me) much better sound. That's why I think EHX power amp tubes will be great.

My mistake, sorry.

Still, it seems now it's biased for 6L6, so I'd go for these unless OP wanted to work with the amp a bit.

Then why did you ask in the first place?

Judging from what I heard personally, EHX tubes (which are svetlana tubes, made in the same factory as sovtek and tung-sol to mention a couple) sound colder and more "accurate" than JJ.
If that's your game, definitely go for these.
