A 6BG6GA is a mechanical redesign of a 6l6.Below is a quote from a Tung-sol 6BG6 data sheet.

“The 6BG6G is essentially a mechanical redesign of type 6L6G to permit operation as a horizontal deflection amplifier for television service .It uses a top cap connection and additional insulation for the plate structure to withstand the high peak voltage encountered is such circuits”.

-The only difference between a 6BG6GA and a 6BG6G is the glass envelope. If your not happy with the $50 plus price for NOS 6l6's, 6BG6's go for somew between $6-$10 each. Still affordable to lay in life time supply. You will need extra room to accommodate the extra length of the adapter. The total length of the adapter and tube is 6 inches.

PLEASE NOTE:This is the first batch of adapters I made . The adapter will only work for 6BG6GA tubes. It will not work for 6BG6G tubes. The 6BG6G is a little taller . I didn't make the top cap wire quite long enough for these tubes. It works fine for the 6BG6GA.
