Amperex was a long-established manufacturer of transmitting tubes when they were acquired by the Dutch firm, Philips in 1955. Philips used the Amperex name to distribute their new line of Dutch-made miniature tubes, such as 12AX7, 12AU7, 12AT7 to feed the American Market. Classic hi-fi brands such as Marantz, Fisher, and H. H. Scott, Inc., used Amperex valves. Amperex also produced the 6DJ8, 6922 and 7308 frame grid tubes. The 6DJ8/ECC88 was developed by Amperex in 1958 and originally developed for video and radar use, the 6DJ8 also excelled in audio amplifiers. Amperex valves were original equipment parts in many models of Tektronix and Hewlett-Packard test equipment. Although Amperex especially the original "Bugle Boy" series) are now very sought after for their sound quality.
The 6K11-6Q11 is a triple triode compaction valve that was used in the original Ampeg V4B amplifier. These valves were made by General Electric in the USA but branded and marketed by Amperex.

This valve is no longer available and judging by the amount of amps that I have seen that have been wrecked by trying someone to rewire the base and use an alternative and ECC83.

Here is your chance to prevent your amp from ever having this awful fate.
Being an Ampeg V4B owner this is something that I am very happy to assist with as keeping this amp original will maintain it incredible performance.
