    AnNone know what a 6211 tube is?? I have done a google, an ebay, and the radio museum. I have found some for sale on ebay, but no info on them.
    I got an amp today with oine tube in it and missing one.

    The other tubes in the amp are a 5u4gb rectifier, three 7408's and one 6v6, two 12ax7 and then this 6211 and one tube missing. I assume that the missing tube is supposed to also be this tube.

    Like a 12AU7 with a bit higher gain.

    I think it's a militarized 12AU7 for the mostpart. You should be able to find some. I've got some around with nowhere to go. They're not that rare.

    I think Zero is closer to correct. I have also used it as a 12at7. I am pretty sure it is another one of those "computer tubes".
