    Does anyone have any information regarding the 6GB8 tube? From what little I've been able to find it's regarded as a sort of uprated EL34 (likened to an 8417) made by Toshiba/Japan. Triode Electronics has data sheets up, but I'm afraid my Japanese character knowledge is nonexistent:

    Anyone here used them? Is the pinout identical to the EL34?

    They sell EL 34 to 6GB8 converters for these so I assume the pinout is different.
