    how about el34 valves? are there any other numbers i should look out for that are the same as them?
    EL34/6CA7.....The USA versions are normally bigger and rounder and look more like a 6L6....The EL34 is normally a bit taller but thinner around...

    6CA7 is the US designation for the Euro EL34 tube.
