Sensibly equivalent¶ to:
The 6V6 family of beam tetrodes came in many constructions and were very popular as the final audio stage of broadcast receivers. We have an American rugged metal valve produced in the 1930s and several glass versions.
The GTY version looks identical to the GT version and differs in the material used for the base. Our other 6V6GTY has the modern pressed glass foot base.
The valves were capable of push pull use but the normal environment was as a single end output stage.
The wide glass tube envelope is 28 mm in diameter and, excluding the IO base pins, is 70 mm tall.
