Default 6BM8 Equivalent

Any ideas on a 6BM8 equivalent? This is a triode-pentode-in-one-tube device.

To what end? There are plenty of these around, new and used, and they are inexpensive.

6F3P is advertised as being equivalent to 6BM8/ECL82. Pinout looks to be the same, but I didn't look at the specs.

I am using some russian 6F3P and they sound smoother than some old mullards I tried.

Maybe the 300mA series heater variants PCL82 / 16A8 will do?

Do I see a conversion to normal EL84 and 12AX7s in the near future?

It is for a Pioneer SX-410 receiver - all tube!
