Coincidentally the ad here and also one of the ads on EBAY quote the tube seller Jesse Brent as giving this tube high marks.

Can you please help me with identification of this TungSol 6SN7 GT Tube ?

Sorry - I have no change to do better pics now - I hope - you see something.

Tube has writings: TUNG-SOL Made in U.S.A  and letter "P" (top line) code "3221-42" (bottom line)

I know "332" is TungSol code. On the glass there is 6SN7 (top line) GT (bottom line) and "H1M" (probably) on the bottom of the sign.

It has bottom "D" getter. Black "T"-plates. Construction is similar to VT-231 Sylvania included in photos also (on the bottom)

322 is Tung-Sol's EIA Code

 

EIA Codes

 

But that sure looks like a Sylvania Bad Boy to me, and it may well be,  I have a few Tung-Sol branded tubes that are clearly OEM'd from Sylvania.

Thanks for the answer!

I just found the difference - in my TungSol tube there is 3 holes in each plate, but in Sylvania VT-231 - from the photo -  2 holes. But I see in thanks to google,  Sylvanias Bad Boys with 3 holes also exists.

Hey tube masters! Got a challenge for you all...

 

I got my first tube amp, a DV336i and the seller has kindly included some tubes for me. One of my 6sn7 is a RCA, which I might post pictures later. But today I want to know which variant is my Sylvania...

 

Took some pictures for you masters. Please help..!!

The Marconi B65 is not always metal based.

They can be , but are also made with black plastic base.

Also with brown base and with smoked glass or clear glass.

manufactored in Britten Holland USA .

 

I have a few of these types ;-))

They are in my opinion the best of the 6sn7 types
