    Never have I seen these but most of the time ( not always ) they are tubes made my SoveteK or some other manufacturer that are re-branded. Had this happened to me several times with Ruby's for example. Then again I could be wrong. I would try and check it out before I plunge on them. Most of the time with these so called "premium" tubes you are being ripped off unless you find some reliable supplier of NOS tubes like Phillips or RCA etc. For my money JJ's work just fine in most applications. No current production tubes have the longevity of days gone by. The tubes in my workhorse amps are replaced every year and the used set is retained for backup.

    They look like re-branded JJ 6V6S tubes to me.

    Looking at the plates, getter and internal construction, I concur.
