6DJ8 Vacuum Tube

The 6DJ8  (European: ECC88) (Russian: 6Н23П) (P/N 154-0187-00,154-0305-00) is a dual triode vacuum tube with a B9A (Noval) miniature 9-pin base.

With 15 mA of plate current, 90 V plate-to-cathode voltage, and −1.3 V grid-to-cathode, the 6DJ8 provides 12.5 mS of transconductance with a plate resistance of about 2.5 kΩ.

The 6DJ8 and its variants are used extensively in many Tektronix instruments of the tube era.

Variants are:

Reference:

Tube aging procedure / Selection and checking procedure

As of 2023, 6DJ8 tubes are still manufactured and used, and new old stock (NOS) 6DJ8s can also be obtained easily. However, the 6DJ8 is sought after by some in the tube audio community, leading to exaggerated prices and occasional cannibalism of classic Tek gear.
