6V6 is perhaps my fav tubes esp they r cheap!
Does it hv a 9 pin eq just like the smaller 6aq5? like to comp the tube to el84.. of course need re-pins.
Also whr to get adatervto convert 6v6 to el84 socket?
Tks for the kind advise from every one. It seemed that the closest pin out is 6BW6. Of course the 6V6 eq has only 40% of EL84 MHO, I just like to explore the sound diff between the 2 family when I exchange the tube, and I do like 6V6 sound a bit more then EL84. May be this is also due to the fact that 6V6 NOS is cheaper so I am actually comparing 6V6 NOS vs the Russian Sovtek and EH EL 84....
7C5 seemed to be a nice one of the kind tube. I have never used Octal base, though I have a few Octal tubes, are they the same diameter as the 9 pin miniture? I will mainly used some of the vintage amp nas doner, I got the 8 pin and 9 pin holes....
tks and best rgds
6CZ5, 6CM6, 6BW6, 6061, 6973 (NOT cheap!) are all quite similar to 6V6. If you can use 12V filament, 12AB5 and 7061 are too.
I have not found one in 9-pin, however if one can use a loctal socket, the 7C5 is exactly equal to 6V6 & sell for $3 to $5 new old stock. The 7C5 is the best deal in a power tube per my 2 cents with the 6AQ5 just behind it with a little less power out.
6BW6/CV4043 is sometimes called a 6V6 equivalent, and is a 9-pin miniature type.
