Decided to post a separate thread here, hopefully someone has one of these.
replacement - Musicman 112RD amp needs a replacement tube 1306580349
This is my wife's practice amp but one of the tubes may need replacing.

The tube itself is labeled Realistic Long Life and also 6L6GC. I can find listings for that "part?" number online but it appears that tube is made by many manufacturers from many countries. I am unsure if the specs would be the same based on much of the talk I am reading on many of the amp forums I have been combing for information.

Does anyone have any thoughts? Please share.

From what little I know of amps (read: "bugger all really") the 6L6 is a very common tube and should be easily available. "Realistic" should be Radio Shack's white label brand so it could have been made anywhere. I believe these days you'll find most come from Russia, and the old Soviet eastern bloc countries. The Chinese are into it too of course, but I understand the quality is "iffy".

Hi,

I would recommend Tubes from Russia (SOVTEK, Svetlana) or the Electro Harmonix (Which are mostly russian anyway).
Other good brand would be TAD. It's a german company called Tube Amp Doctor (TAD).

The chinese stuff... NO
