Item details

I will never forget the first time I saw metal tubes; I was 10 or 11 years old it was a pair of RCA 6L6's in a Bogen amplifier from the early 1950′s. The 6L6 is one of the most popular output tubes of all time and was introduced by RCA in July 1936. Normally they are black but I went crazy with a spray can again and painted this one pink. This is a completely functional part; In the second photo you can see it under test in one of my Hickok Cardmatic tube testers. In the first photo it is seen in an LMC octal production socket which is included so that you can easily display the tube.

Overall height of tube in socket is 4.75".
