Anyone here try Mazda or Fivre 6v6gts. If so, how do they measure up to Popes or Visseaux? A seller on eBay has a good stock.

I own the Pope 6v6, but never use them in my kt88 firebottle, they just seem not powerful enough to me.

With that said, even tho I don't own the 6v6 Fivre, I do own 2a3 Fivre (for a different tube amp I own) and own 6sn7 Fivre, love both those tubes. Fivre as a brand seems to be really solid.

I also own Fivre gz32 and Fivre 5u4g rectifiers, they're both rly good too.

What is a 6F6G? Power output in Pentode? What rectifier do you use with them?

The 6F6G is an early Pentode introduced in 1936, it preceded the 6V6. I believe it puts out 3-4 watts in Pentode mode.
Use whatever rectifier you would use with 6V6's if you are concerned about running the tubes too hard...straitwire
