Who made lowery branded tubes? Also are 6x8 tubes useable for anything? One more question, Is a jensen loudspeaker numbered 220910 7A41 P10 Q 05824 2 Worth anything

A 1959 P10Q is worth quite a bit. Good condition about $250.

How do you tell the date it was made?

Lowery made tube organs with their brand of tubes in the 1950s and into the mid 1960s. The date code on your speaker is 220910. 220 means Jensen, 9 is the last digit of the year, and 10 is the week of the year. Unless the speaker is a replacement, that means it can only be a 1959 (1949 didn't have P10Q's and they weren't making tube organs in 1969).

Hey Guys -

The correct spelling of the organ company's name is LOWREY

That'll help you better find photos on eBay, where Lowrey-branded tubes are regularly sold.

The Jensen P10Q with an original smooth cone is worth less than one with an original ribbed cone.

The 6x8 is a triode/pentode that shares a common cathode. Could possibly be used for something. The triode section is roughly similar to half of a 12ay7.
