Draw an horizontal load line near 15mA (CCS) and look how linear it can be
Mu is just above 30

Or you could design a valve compressor-still very popular in recording studios!

I have used them and I did not choose them at random. This is my story.
Several years ago I came across a article on the WWW. The question was posed “Is the 6dJ8 suitable for audio? Turns out someone had mislabeled Tunsgram variable mu valves as 6DJ8’s. The article was rather long winded. The short version is if the tube was biased toward the high end of the anode current scale it behaved as you would expect for a 6DJ8. At the 2, 3 & 4 ma anode currents it was very nonlinear.
The PCC189 is the 7 volt version of the imposter valve. I found a couple of dozen Tunsgram PCC189’s for near $1 each. A pair of them went into a common cathode line amplifier that made an Alesis RA 150 sound very Class A SET like. Another pair was biased up hot, I could not tell them from 6DJ8’s in that application. The fun was worth the few dollars.
All just for fun!
