Default Hey, George Anderson!

These are for you - 400 mA plate current in a beam pentode. Think of the possibilities!

2 x SVETLANA EL500 = 6GB5 = 6P36S USSR NEW NOS VERY RARE! HARD to FIND! 1970s | eBay

(Nothing to do with me - just interesting)

The Philips data sheet for the EL500 shows 250 mA average cathode current with peaks to 440 mA. These are rather small in the sweep tube world. The 6LW6 has a 400 mA average rating and a 1.4 AMP peak rating.

So, while I don't see $10 plus shipping for an EL500/6GB5, I did buy 10 13GB5's since they are on the dollar menu. I haven't had the time to light them up yet.
Tubelab, it's 5 year mission. To explore strange new tubes, to seek out new circuits and topologies, to boldly go where no tube has gone before......
