    I'd be surprised it the STR's are old enough to be Sylvanias but I may be wrong.

    yes, 2 of these came as orig equipment in my Boogie MkIII simulclass head. they were clearly marked as sylvanias.

    It also came with a pair of sylvania str415's (I think) 6L6's !!!

    I found that amp to be kind of picky about tubes. those sylvanias sounded great in that amp ! (even though I preferred a quartet of 6L6's for a smoother tone)
