As long as they are replaced in pairs (2,4,6) you shouldn't have any issues. If you buy Mesa tubes in the same color code, you don't even really have to worry about keeping them paired. I have never tried mixing color codes on Mesa amps, but even their most extreme mismatch is still closer than the "matched pairs" you will get from some vendors.

I have looked on Mesa website and can not find a set of six tubes for my amp head.. All I can find is sets of two..... how would I go about getting the same color code? I have never had a amp head with this many tubes... All the amps I have had have only had two power tubes.. I loved my Rectoverb 50 v2 combo so much I had to get a Triple Rectifier head..... I love the tone and the ability to play any style of music thru them... and the build quality is far superior than any thing else I have ever owned...

Just buy three duets. If any of the duets has a different color code, just make sure they are placed in the same pair when you install the tubes. It won't make much, if any, difference but I'm anal about my tubes.
