Nice score! 6GK6 is pretty much the same as EL84/6BQ5 with a scrambled pin-out and G3 is not internally connected to the cathode like EL84 types so be sure to make that connection on the tube socket. ECL86 is also a great tube, basically a 12ax7 and a EL84 in one tube. I have built a few amps with these tubes and really dig them. Ill buy any ECL86 tubes you don't need if you want to get rid of some.
