    Only used , not abused, domestically, ie not bumped around ina van at any
    Mechanically broken dome end of GT badged Sovtek 5881, neat circular crack.
    Black deposit around a jet out of the envelope matching a black deposit on
    the metal "protection" cage screwed to the cab back panel. Gripper function
    around valve base was fine. Not obviously valve/cage touching, but close, I
    will reposition this cage 1/4 inch lower down. Is this a recognised
    design/construction failing perhaps Russian 5881 a bit longer than 6L6.

    This model should have the plastic/wood composite back board braced back to
    the front as it has 2 large openings that seriously weaken it, but the
    speaker is in the way. Or a vertical bar from top to bottom to prevent the
    panel flexing inwards if pushed up against something.
    Have repositioned the "protection" cage down 1/4 inch and bent the
    horizontal part of the cage downwards a bit to give about 3/4 inch clearance
    from the bottles when no flexure of the back board.
