Default Sylvania JAN 6L6WGB max plate V?

Hello all,

I have in hand 4 NOS JAN 6L6WGB Sylvanias. I want to test them with 410VDC @ 35 ma. I think this errs to overspec. Did anybody run this tube (or 5881 NOS American) at about 410VDC plate voltage with no problem?
Hope there is some headroom in its spec cause it will be a shame to short these puppys.....

Happy new year

Default there is an amp

I have an amp that uses 6L6GC Svetlana. It is biased as that. I wonder if I can safely run an audition with these fine NOS tubes.
The specs state 400V max, I wonder if I can safely push it 10V more.

Sure...They're pretty rugged.

I would lower the B+ for long time use however.

Cheers,
