could nos 7027 be used as a direct replacement in a modern fender that calls for 6l6
I dont think so. But im sure a tube expert will confirm this
Probably not unless pin 1 on the socket isn't connected (which would be unusual in a Fender amp).
It's a big NO-NO for sure on older Fender amps (tweed, blonde, blackface, silverface)
On PCB amps it *MIGHT* be OK, but you'd have to check the schematic.
Checking the schematic won't even help. They don't show "stop point" connections to tube socket pins that aren't supposed to be connected to the tube (or connected to tube pins that aren't internally connected).
That's true - I meant to say "check the layout".
