    I use this site a lot to determine valve types:
    6X4, Tube 6X4; Röhre 6X4 (6X4)
    Google "radiomuseum 5y3gt"

    Just type in the numbers one at a time after "radiomuseum"
    They often give circuit examples.

    To the best of my knowledge,only the 5Y3 is used in any guitar amp I've seen.It is a rectifier,usually used in small Champ type amps,or amps of up to 20 watts or so,like the Tweed Deluxe.

    You would have been better off if you found the bottle of Crown Royal....
