Generally speaking you can consider Fivre tubes as American tubes made in Italy under license with quality materials.

However I have seen crazy prices around. As always cost is subjective. IMHO, I could buy them in case I would want to restore an old Fender Amp to its original state. For DIY I would just buy the black coated Russian GT version which is more than good enough and very strong. Tested up to 450V plate voltage in pentode mode and it worked flawlessly. Having said that I have special 6V6 types in my collection but I bought when their price was still reasonable....

Yes, I built that amplifier several years ago. It was a fun project . Easy, and sounded excellent. Click on the reference to el-84 or 6v6 tube use on top of page. You can substitute el-84's for the 6v6 if you change output stage cathode resistors to 250 ohms. I used a heavy duty, dpdt toggle switch to make the cathode resistors switchable to use either 6v6 or el-84 tubes. I believe I used tube socket adapters for changing from 6v6 to el84. I can not remember if I preferred the amp with el84, or 6v6. I used it for a couple years, then sold it to finance another amp project. Have fun. Its worth yhe time and effort in my humble opinion.
