6Z49P-DR (6Ж49П-ДР)

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, -1.9V BIAS, 180Va

Other operating points

15mA, -3.1V BIAS, 220Va
10mA, -4.2V BIAS, 260Va
5mA, -2.3V BIAS, 150Va

Another very linear high-μ soviet Pentode. Spectrum has higher order harmonics but they’re monotonic at all currents so I’m marking this as no Hx. Sounds the same as it measures – excellent!
