You would have to scare up the Hi-Temp glass chimney and the Anode heat-sink. Then you would have to run a squirrel-cage type blower to run thru the chimneys. That's going to make your noise floor kinda high....
Let's see???? Probably have to run it off your 220 VAC line that's in the garage.........you know, the line that's rated for 30 Amps............& maybe you'll have enough power.
Oh, not to mention finding curves for such a tube...........& what about the "tetrode kink", you know...the one that makes Tetrodes unsuitable for audio?
