great ideawith 6W6GT, truly an underestimated tube!
As is the 6S4, if you might want to try a real triode instead of 6W6GT, 6S4 usually comes cheap.
(i got a handful of 6W6GT and was thinking of PSE someday...)

Aside from the heater, the 6W6 is the same as the 50L6 and 25L6, but not the 6L6. The 50L6 was commonly used in older AM tube radios, and should be easy to find a bunch of.

Why spend money on expensive chinese tubes ?
With 6W6GT you have a better sound quality than the Chinese tubes for only a feaw dollars!!! The plates of the 6W6GT are balck and well sized, as were the valves in the U.S. end of the 50s. Nowadays we do not manufacture more valves with this quality. What is sold today is a beautiful product, but not as durable.
My Shuguang 300B are stored !
I'll make a lamp with them ...

I do not have experience with the 50L6 and 25L6 , I do not know if the sound same... And the heaters have very different voltage. But probabily are a fine tube, too...

Didn't compare the 6W6 vs 6V6 (different screen voltage) but the 6W6 SE amp I build sounded excellent. Sleeper tube.

Man I just love small and cheap amps now Which OT are you using? I am mightily impressed with the XSE series from Edcor, tho not with pentodes. (triodes drives them wonderfully)
