But new Russian 6BM8s are still available I thought that was a decent price for NOS Telefunkens. Once you go Telefunken, Valvo, or Mullard you’ll never go back.
It’s just annoying to know that there’s a finite supply of a given tube out there. Your name or email address: Log in or Sign up.
Thanks for the advice! I dont think its to the point of scrounging subs though. And, we often will find an “Update” to dxtasheet collection.
This could really help some us with amps that use these tubes if it would work. You’re right about not going through a lot of output tubes though. Yes, it will work.
I just perused a quad of early NOS Phillips there. The real danger here is If they’re used they’re very low hours. Change the value to put the 6BM8 into about the same idle current as the 6GW8 originally would have But I guess that comes with the territory when you’re talking about vintage tube stuff.
I counted over 30 available on US Ebay right now. Do you already have an account? Id say buy enough to last your lifetime, maybe sets and forget about it.

I see that the 6BM8 is a very similar tube with different pinout.

No, create an account now. From what I hear they usually last a couple thousand hours or more, which would take me years to rack up.
Why do you need to sub? Since it was more popular in Europe, the best place to look would be the Bay or even one of the Eurobay sites. Well, in all elc86 a have a couple of backup sets of used but good 6GW8’s, but I figured if it was possible to switch over to a current production tube why not?
They’ll swim by one by one. Substituting 6BM8s for 6GW8s has been done, in some jukebox and organ amp retro-fits. I haven’t tested them yet and probably won’t until I need them. Would it be possible to use them as a 6GW8 substitute without doing any modifications besides changing socket pinout? At which point I’ll see if I can find 4 that match out of my spares. I can sure relate to the feeling of hard to find tubes though.
Jim McShaneDec 1, My Telefunken Princess Radio uses 2 of these for output.

Well sure I guess because alot of european radios used them there may be a following. Also, I suspect that we collectors will not be wearing out a set of output tubes in our lifetime. Discussion in ‘ Tube Audio ‘ started by rajuncajunNov 30, There is no sub listed for the 6GW8.
GordonWDec 3, The only change that might have to be done, may be the cathode bias resistor value
