Re: remote cutoff pentodes for compression?
"only a few, like the 6bm8 are staight pentodes. Most are sharp or remote."
Pentodes are usually divided into two classes, remote cutoff and sharp cutoff. The tubes that you call "straight" pentodes, like the EF86 and 6BM8, are classified as sharp cutoff. So don't worry about trying to find a "straight" tube :)
