12AX7 and ECC83 are virtually the same, although in theory a real ECC83 will always have a low noise spiral-wound heater; a 12AX7 might not, although many actually do.

6n2p is a similar Russian valve, but with different heater arrangements. To use it in a 12AX7/ECC83 circuit you need to rewire the heaters.

1 = A 2 = G 3 = K 4 = Htr 6.3V 5 = Htr 6.3V 6 = A 7 = G 8 = K 9 = Htr Centre tap 0V

1 = A 2 = G 3 = K 4 = Htr 5 = Htr 6 = A 7 = G 8 = K 9 = Scrn

The Hfe and noise figures are similar to ECC803, better than ECC83

The heater of 12.6 vbolts across 4 & 5 with a centre tap at pin 9 is the difference. Rewiring of the valve base will be required.
