The 6V6 is a beam-power tetrode vacuum tube. The lower-powered 6V6 was better suited for average home use, and became common in the audio output stages of "farmhouse" table-top radios , where power pentodes such as the 6F6 had previously been used. The 6V6 required less heater power and produced less distortion than the 6F6, while yielding higher output in both single-ended and push-pull configurations. Although the 6V6 was originally designed especially for use in automobile radios,  the clip-in Loctal base 7C5 ,  from early , or the lower heater current 12V6GT , both with the identical characteristics to the 6V6, but with the smaller T-9 glass envelope, soon became the tubes of choice for many automotive radios manufacturers. Additionally, the 6V6 had applications in portable battery-operated radios. Tube manufacturers were keen to promote the superiority of the metal tube construction that was introduced on April 1, , and large quantities of the 6V6 tube were produced in the following decade, many as military supply JAN tubes, and the price of the metal and glass versions were held to closely the same retail price level for the first few years of their production.

Dear Members. This information can be quite useful for my friends of the radio. The tube 6M6 can also be substituted directly by the tube EL Best Regards. They have the same base, connections and heater volts but differ considerably. THe heater current of the EL33 is 0. More seriously the biasing requirements are different and could cause dangerous excess anode currents. Replacing an EL33 with a 6V6 without changing grid bias would not be a good idea!
Whilst it may "work" to exchange these tubes it should not be done without circuit changes. Within its maximum ratings, 6AQ5 is equivalent to 6V6, however it is not a direct replacement. You must change the tube socket since the 6AQ5 uses 7 pin miniature and also check that maximum ratings are not exceeded.
A cool thing about 6AQ5 and 6V6 is that they have same filament ratings. Seen that the original author doesn't seem to care, nobody else has the authorization level to edit and correct the title from 6V6 to 6M6? Or to delete it altogether? Dear Marco Thank you for your post. I wanted to check how long it takes until somebody does the apropriate action. This should not be me! Nothing happens if everybody wonders It is very easy for a member to write directly to the author by clicking below the post the link I did it now the following way: "Dear Julio When you begin a new thread please put in the automatic answer to get informed about answers and then check them.
Here the whole "crowd" is waiting that you correct your wrong postings - there are two threads. When you post something please look up before if this is correct - here you could have seen on the data sheets that it is incorrect. Please tell me after having done so.
Thank you. Cordially, Ernest". Dear Members,. I ask all excuse goes my previous information. I was induced in mistake by the fact of my manual of tubes to incorrect be. We won't usually check the technical dates of to manual when this it informs us that equivalence direct exists, in fact, to present it date, I have been following the instructions of the manuals and I have always been having success in my work.
Then the reason goes the which I don't have the habit of checking the manuals I or in correct the. Inclusively to removes you doubt if he had or in the tube averaged EL33 changed goes the 6V6, the in the manual he felt this information, I made the experience given that had available the tube 6V6, the radio worked, what concluded that EL33 was damaged.
I removed to 6V6, I acquired an EL33, being like this with the concluded work and without noticing the mistake that was to commit.

EL33 6V6. Be exact please. No subject. See also here. My reaction - which should have been your's EL33 and 6V6 and 6M6. Please bring the source again. You reach this tube or valve page from a search after clicking the "tubes" tab or by clicking a tube on a radio model page. You will find thousands of tubes or valves with interesting links. You even can look up radio models with a certain tube line up.
Other shape e. Octal Int. A hasty note of warning! Regards to all, Roy. Can you please just remove the word "directly" by editing your post? Then the very welcome objection from Roy still is true but also the hasty reader will not fall into the trap. Best Regards, Jacob.

Plus tell a reader from which boook and on which page it is. Only by this a next one will not be catched again by this trap or try the same thing here It is perfectly clear that normally we can rely on such data - you did nothing wrong except not verifying. We just try to do our best here and I thank you that you have the same opinion.
I'm sure you will change the other thread too.
