El84 pinout breakdown?

Post by doubtingthomas »

I know I should know this, but more often than not I just find myself wiring and assembling amps rather than brushing up on fundamentals. I'm trying to figure out the pinouts of an EL84 and cannot find a diagram anywhere. Trying to rewire sockets for a 6v6 design for conversion for dual bias power tubes. Could someone direct me to a pinout diagram please? This would be much appreciated.

Search for "EL84 datasheet". Every data sheet will have the pinout on it.

I have printed and kept datasheets for all the valves I use or think I may use. I often find a need to refer to them.

This layout has both EL84's and 6V6's and has the pin conversion:

I use Duncan's TDSL as a handy reference for all tube pin diagrams and summary specs.
