Tung-Sol 6L6G
The 6L6G was the first commercially available beam powertetrode under license developed by RCA in 1936 when the Marconi Valve Corporation qualified developing its own beam tetrode commercially as not feasible. The 6L6 was a great success for RCA and a year later Marconi came with her first beam tetrode the KT66.

Tung-Sol Lamp Works was founded in 1907 in Newark, NJ USA. The name Tung-Sol is a contraction of Tungsten or tungsten the element where the filaments in tubes and light bulbs are made and Sol what in Latin means sun. Advertising for Tung-Sol car bulbs Since the 1920s, Tung-Sol also started producing other electronic products, including electron tubes. Tung-Sol strived for perfection of its products by means of a manufacturing process under laboratory standards and strict quality control. The best known tube from Tung-Sol is the 6550 marketed in 1955 in response to the Genalex / Marconi KT88. The 6550 is a so-called 'beam tetrode' and can be found in amplifiers with a lot of power, for example in the Ampeq SVT bass amplifiers and Marshalls 50 and 100 Watt guitar amplifiers for the American market.
