RE: 7189 recommendation for Sherwood S-5000

There is a Russian tube called the 6π14π that is exactly equivalent to a ruggedized EL84, that is, a 7189. "Rugged" means a higher plate dissipation rating, 14W versus 12W for a standard EL84. McShane and others have this tube. This will be your best bet.

I believe the Sovtek EL84M and maybe the Electroharmonix EL84 are this same 14W tube. The other New Sensor EL84 equivalents (e.g. the Gold Lion) are only rated 12W, I believe.
