6F4P (6Ф4П) Pentode Part

All tube operating points below are by no means definitive good sound recipe for your particulate tube project. Lowest THD point is not necessary best sounding one and there is always some variance even in a NOS tube batch from the same manufacturer!  Below information is only useful as a general starting point and is ment to get you in a ballpark when no measurement equipment is available.

Lowest THD operating point spectrum

20mA, -1.4V BIAS, 188Va

Other operating points

15mA, -2.2V BIAS, 200Va

Traced plate curves


Quite linear pentode with clean spectrum. Don’t know what’s going on with first curves leaning like that. Maybe that’s an artifact of static curve tracing – plate heats up and op. points drift? Not sure, but that doesn’t affect spectrum.
