    I recently picked up a ~1980 Garnet Sessionman Combo and it came with two 6CA7s that appear to be original.
    They are 7-pin "Fat-Boy" style with black plastic pin caps.
    No identifying marks other than a black stamp:

    They look like Philips/Sylvania to me.

    I believe GE was the only other company that made a "fat boy" 6CA7.

    Yeah that's about all I could come up too(GE or Sylvania is what i had suspected). Thanks. I'll start a thread about this amp if anyone's interested. Garnet made some pretty cool stuff.
