5u4g vs. 5u4gb

Which one has more voltage drop & sag ?
Which one is more rugged & will hold up in a combo amp ?

Tele's and tubes....an accident?......I don't think so...

Off of the top of my head, I'd say the 5U4G. This is one of many reasons I have a few tube manuals kicking around. Check the specs, and you may even see that different manufacturers have it the other way around. You may see as the tube 'evolved', the PIV increased, the peak current increased, and the internal impedance decreased. Or, I may be full of prunes.
