7408 is the military version of the 6V6; generally in NOS form they are excellent, quite robust, and can be found at radio swap meets a good prices. Highly recommended for any 6V6 application.  
7199 is a pentode/triode 9 pin combo used in the later tube hifi/stereo amplifier era. They are rare, expensive, and their overall and sonic quality varies over a very wide range.  
Input/cathodyne phase splitter stage used in the Dynaco Stereo 70. Avoid if possible.
