6n14p

Anyone tried this as a output-tube in a zen-C ?
It seems to be the same tube [?] as the well known 6n15p-ev which is standard in this amp.
Anyone?

It is NOT the same tube. The 6P14P-EV is an EL84 equivalent with a little more power. The amp you have however, is designed for the 6P15P-EV or SV83. You can try some of the 6P14P-EV in your amp and see if you like them better. This tube does not benefit from the Hazen Grid Modification that makes the 6P15P-EV's sing.

Thanks, I was offered these tubes as a direct replacement so I'm glad I asked....
Proffessional tube-stores obviously like to sell tubes, no matter if the customer askes for a specific tube [the 6p15p-ev].
THANKS AGAIN.

I have a Zkit-1 and a second similar home-brew amp (that will be at Decfest this year) that loves the 6p15p and hates the 6p14p.  The difference is night and day.  Lots more power from the 6p15p and a much nicer sound.  Then, a while back, I worked on a Taboo, and that amp was just the opposite...got more power and sounded better with the 6p14p.  So, pick the one you like best and go with it.

Thanks Dan. They cost about nothing here so I'll give it a try; just don't want to use tubes that will harm the amp.
Thanks for your answer,
Nico
