Phillips STR-415 vs STR-387

Are these the same tube? If so, why the different name? If not, how are they different?

Would they be good in a modern, high-gain amp that uses 6L6GC? Thinking of replacing the stock JJs that came in my amp. It's a single-channel, 50-watt, high-gain amp.

Just got word on another forum of this: "The STR-387 is spec'd as a 6L6GC (30 watts), the STR-415 is spec'd to a 7581a (35 watts)."
