    I was reading the thread on 6L6's and wondered has anyone mixed brands, matched and used them to any sucess? Say like an NOS RCA with a current production TAD 6L6. Or a Westinghouse & a GE.

    You would probably be best off to use mismatched output tubes in a cathode-biased OP section, and then probably one with separate cathode resistors, or perhaps in a fixed-bias amp with separate bias control for each tube. I've heard some say it can yield some interesting tones.
