Vacuum Tube - 6LB6, Beam Power Amplifier
New-Old-Stock (NOS) tube.
The 6LB6 is a compactron beam-power pentode primarily designed for use as the horizontal-deflection amplifier in color television receivers. It is characterized by having a very low knee voltage, high plate-to-screen ratio, and high peak current capability. These efficiency factors make the 6LB6 widely adaptable for use in circuits using shunt or variable-bias type regulation with B+ supply voltages from 240 to over 400 volts. Its low knee minimizes "snivets" without the necessity of supplying special voltages to the beam plates.
