    My 68 Ampeg uses it, and the amp tech that serviced it Friday said what I'm hearing/what I like about my clean tone in the amp is that tube. Do any newer boutique amps use one? I don't want to replace the Ampeg, but I would like to get another amp so I don't have to gig with the vintage one.

    I think Ampeg was about the only one that used those. It's just three triodes in one tube instead of the more common dual triode tubes.
    I've got a Rocket II that uses one and taking it to a gig wouldn't bother me in the least. Of course neither does gigging with blackface Fenders.

    Gig the Ampeg. I have a 1965 Reverberocket R12R-T which uses a 6BK11, 6U10, two 12ax7's and a pair of 7868's. I gig with it all the time. It's the last version of the top loaded series before the introduction of the Reverberocket 2.
