Re: 6CG7 Phase Inverter?
I've seen the 6CG7 described as "a 6SN7 in a nine-pin bottle", but to me it's always been more like a 12BH7A; kind of like a 12AU7 on steroids. The 12BH7A won't require rewiring the base like the 6CG7 will.  
I would think it will work fine for the phase inverter, depending on the PI design. It's kind of low-gain for good balance in a long-tail PI, for example, unless you use a balance pot.
