    I picked up a couple of NOS tested USA-made 6L6GA clear glass tubes on flea-bay, at a bargain price.
    NO names nor codes, anywhere on the two tubes, so the hunt was on!
    I literally had to scour hundreds and hundreds of internet photos, before I....finally....found a perfect match.....KEN-RAD.
    Are there any sources out there (other than Tubemonger's Tube Library and E-Bay), that are a GOOD source of tube pictures?

    Thanks!

    Next time just try posting your tube photos. I could have easily id-ed that tube for you.

    I love the bright clarity and raw texture of Ken-Rad 6L6G and the smaller 6L6GA. I use 'em in a 5E7 Bandmaster amp.
