No, that would be the 6N10. For the 6N1 there is one made by Sovtek. Search for SKU: T-6N1-P-SOVT.

I bought this for my Auris Euterpe headphone amp, based on the good reviews here, but was disappointed in this tube. Maybe I got a bad one, but the highs were very rolled-off and there was audible distortion. Maybe this tube would be ok for a guitar amp, but not for hi-fi. Thankfully, I was able to exchange for a JJ Electronic Long Plate 12AU7/ECC802S, which is a wonderful tube for my headphone amp. Thanks to this dealer for their exchange policy.

Large selection of tubes, reasonable prices and fast delivery. There is nothing more to ask for.

Did a quick test before installing this tube in a Ampeg VT60 where
it is used as the phase inverter/driver to a pair of 6L6s.
One side read 80 and the other 81 on a Heathkit TC-1 simple emission
tester. Fired the amp up and great tone and was able to adjust the hum balance
to a dead quite null which I could not do before.
I never have any worries ordering from AES (tubesandmore.com)

So far, I can say I really like this brand of current production 12AU7A tubes. I use them for both audio applications and one of my scopes also takes these tubes in the vertical sync section. They tend to be thicker than other brands, but that is not an issue for my equipment. They seem well made and have worked very well so far. They are made in Germany, too, which I like.
