The front tubes are the tall ones they are 6c19 , 6s19 , 6c19p-v , 6s19p-v , 6c19p-bp , 6s19p-bp , 6c19p-vr , 6s19p-vr

all the same tube with the bp and vr types being ruggedized

The rear tubes are the short ones  6J1 , 6J1P-EB , EF95 , 6AK5 , 5654 , 403B , 5591 , CV850 , CV4010 again all the same tube. I find the Voskhod 6J1P-EB to be one of the best on my amp a LaFigaro 332s and it is also one of the cheapest.

Ebay seems to be the best source pick someone with good feedback and you should be ok, I have bought from Bulgaria , Russia and Ukraine without any problems.

It is getting a little warm down here for this amp hope you have aircon.

For vocal I like the Mullard CV850 or CV4010 the 850 is just an earlier version they were made in different plant

If you can find them the 850 is the best but 4010 is almost as good and easy to find

Oh and the 850 also came branded a Siemens EF95 but they are super rare

Happy hunting

I was just saying tubes aren't always what they seem in terms of brands with various companies re-branding tubes made by other companies, makes tube hunting more interesting.

With the big power tubes you only have the option of standard or heavy duty, the ones with P on the end are standard and the ones ending with  P-VR or P-BP are heavy duty

I have not noticed any difference in terms of sound but the heavy duty ones may last longer

General rule with Russian tubes is the earlier the better, I look for the oldest matched pair from the Svetlana plant although they only seemed to make the standard version

I have had my amp for over two years, apart from trying out the heavy duty version for about a month I have only used one set of 6C19P Svetlana 1962
