I see there's been no mention of 6BW6.
While were doing tube types. How about the 6L6?

6L6 is not as linear as 6V6 in triode. 6BW6 can be nice but I did not have one to try at the time. But is it's envelope good for ~5W and long life, as we use it here?

Thanks for your comment. I was curious as I have 6L6 lying about. And read about the more neutral sound of the 6L6 compared to the slightly fatter tone of the 6V6.

Having used 6L6 in triode in my amp, its a bit rough compared even to EL34 & KT88 in triode IMO.

You mean your not even listening to this preamp anymore. You got the bug worse than I.

I use it most of the time. The question was if opting for 6BW6 for vibration resistance, would it be as safe as for dissipation and long life too?

Another candidate, 6AQ5 is a 7BZ equivalent to 6V6.

Exactly my experience too, in PP and SE.. Of the three I think the EL34 performs the best in triode connection.
