Wanted to try out a 6l6 in my new trinity tramp and bought A sovtex (so I thought). Turns out in the box was a Sylvania 6l6gc made in UK. I googled it to see what they are about and found nothing on them. All seem to be made in US. Anyone seen these or no anything about them? Wondering if I should keep it or take it back to the store.

Thanks for the info. It’s a starting point for my tube trial journey. I was just worried that since I couldn’t find any info on it that it might Be incorrect/damage the amp.

Tung Sol 5881's have those mica spacers. Pretty much anything else is Soviet made. Made in England, Made in the UK etc was used to get around trade embargoes at the time.
