The amperex tube you linked IS with A-frame structure, lol, read more carefully about tubes.
But no. I would not recommend this tube for every genre. For rock/metal/progressive/jazz it is very good.
For electronic atmospheric, downtempo, minimal, house, dub etc. it has too mellow and warm soundstage and needs more air & kick.
But thats only my opinion.
The link you gave about Amperex orange has quite good price on them, I would get it and leave 6922EH tube for electronic.
Like I`ve said before, for me, best tubes for every genre are Dario-Miniwatt pcc189, Ultron pcc189 & Mazda pcc189 (for me it has too bright & harsh highs with cans but with external speakers it`s good, the room eats the harshness).

Can you give a link where you bought it? I hope you didn`t think it is same as my ultron pcc189 because they might be totally different sounding.
