Default Common Audio Tubes in standard use

I am building an excel spreadsheet of just commonly used audio tubes so i can print my own booklet of settings for my Hickok tube tester so i don't need to sort through pages and pages of tubes for TV, and ham radios and the like. I know many high end amplifiers used uncommon tubes. I am just looking for tube numbers commonly used. the normal 6L6 run of the mill stuff. here is my list so far. what am i missing??? these are not in any sort of order.




5AR4
5U4
5Y3
5881
6AS7
6AU7
6BQ5
6CG7
6DJ8
6L6
6SN7
6V6
6550
6922
12AT7
12AU7
12AX7
EL34
EL84
EZ81
KT66
KT88


Others less common but might be included
