Pope 6V6GT - have the mighty RCA and Visseaux been de-throned? Yes. The Pope 6V6GT was made in a Philips Holland factory near the border of Belgium. Click here. for more info on the Philips factories. I have driven by the old building on my way to the Charleroi airport. This tube was made from 1957 to about 1960.
The Pope 6V6GT is made the same way as the old Amperex Holland EL34... rugged. I have run them at 450v DC on the plates and screens, and drawn 70ma from them. They don't budge. I don't want to tell you it's OK to do this in your amp...it is way beyond the published limit of the tube, but I was shocked to say the least.
The sound is what Philips Holland tubes are famous for: Great life in the mids, wonderful extension, and humanity!
