I counted over 30 available on US Ebay right now.
I see that the 6BM8 is a very similar tube with different pinout. My Telefunken Princess Radio uses 2 of these for output.
Your name or email address: One of my favorite old guitar amps has an obscure set but over time Ive scrounged Four full NOS sets. I thought that was a decent price for NOS Telefunkens.
I can sure relate to the feeling of hard to find tubes though. Since it was more popular in Europe, the best place to look would be the Bay or even one of the Eurobay sites.

I’ve attached data sheets for both tubes. I just perused a quad of dztasheet NOS Phillips there. Change the value to put the 6BM8 into about the same idle current as the 6GW8 originally would have Would it be possible to use them as a 6GW8 substitute without doing any modifications besides changing socket pinout?

My main system is solid state and it takes the high-hour load of movies and background music during gatherings etc Why do you need to sub? From what I hear they usually last a couple thousand hours or more, which would take me years to rack up.

Hi all, I have a vintage pioneer receiver that uses 6GW8 output tubes, which are no longer manufactured. The real danger here is There is no sub listed for the 6GW8. Once you go Telefunken, Valvo, or Mullard you’ll never go back. No, create an account now. This could really help some us with amps that use these tubes if it would work. If they’re used they’re very low hours. The only change that might have to be done, may be the cathode bias resistor value Let’s face it, we love to rotate our stuff, don’t you too?
But I guess that comes with the territory when you’re talking about vintage tube stuff. Id say buy enough to last your lifetime, maybe sets and forget about it. Jim McShaneDec 1, Tom BavisDec 1, Do you already have an account? GordonWDec 3, You’re right about not going through a lot of output tubes though.
It’s just annoying to know that there’s a finite supply of a given tube out there. At which point I’ll see if I can find 4 that match out of my spares. GordonWDec 1, Well sure I guess because alot of european radios used them there may be a following. Thanks for the advice!

I haven’t tested them yet and probably won’t until I need them. Also, I suspect that we collectors will not be wearing out a set of output tubes in our lifetime. No burn marked or anything of the like, shiny looking plates and pins etc They’ll swim by one by one. Share This Page Tweet.
Some will claim that you lose just a tad of power, but probably not anything significant Well, in all honesty a have a couple of backup sets of used but good 6GW8’s, but I figured if dataseet was possible to switch over to a current production tube why not?

Very nice people to deal with, honest, quick and reasonably priced.
Looks like the only sub for the 6BM8, is the 6HC8.
