Default Who made these early Peavey 6L6GC

Another used Fender Super Twin from about 1976 just arrived with 6 "Peavey Super 6's Ruggedized Premium Selection tubes installed (well, removed and boxed for shipment to be exact).

I see some later Peavey Super 6's were Ruby. Any idea what these ones I got really are and who really made them? They don't look uite like any tubes I've seen before; not very big, straight sides, the silver getter is sprayed into the bottom of the envelope instead of the dome, dark phenolic plastic base, a dab of pink-flesh colored paint on the big keyed center pin. Maybe the unique mica top support is a clue? Maybe that's what makes them ruggedized?

If a pic would help identify the em I'll post one up...

They kinda look like the Shuguang by the looks of the top stablizing mica's on the top found on this page,

6L6 Tubes > 5881, 6L6GC Tube Sets - BOI AudioWorks

Here is a page that calls them Mazda,

Yes! Definitel the Shuguang, also labeled as Mazda and mine as Peavey.

It gets pretty confusing, like here's a guy with some that are labeled Raytheon!!! So he just made up the rest which is obviously wrong jut to sell then on eBay:

yes it certainly appears that all the ones with that stabilizer mica at the top and the silver getter at the bottom are ShuGuang

PV buys tubes in huge amounts. SUper Sixes is just what they print on any 6L6 tube they sell. These days they shop at Ruby a lot, and Ruby might supply any number of sources. There is nothing special about the Ruby choice. PV used to sell domestic tubes, when they were still being made. PV sometimes sells JJ tubes.
