    Will 6v6 power tubes work in an EL84, AC30-style amp?

    Just wondering, Does THD yellow jackets make anything for that application? would it work with the lower 6v6 voltages?

    i don't think they do.

    el84 and 6v6 spec pretty similarly but are not in interchangeable in any practical way.
