The 6CG7 is a general purpose medium μ double triode. Television receivers were a major user of the 6CG7 but use as an RC coupled amplifier is also discussed in the data-sheet. With a maximum anode dissipation of five Watts this would make a good replacement for the ECC82 in a small audio amplifier. Note that pin 9 is not connected and the 6.3 Volt heater supply connects to pins 4 and 5.

The triode sections are 13 mm tall.
The thin glass tube envelope is 20 mm in diameter, and excluding the B9A base pins is 59 mm tall.
