I had looked at Mesa's web site for the user manual, you can find it in the support link. I see they have made some changes to the manual such that they recommend the use of 6L6GC and EL34 (6CA7) at all times. Running a quad of 6L6 seems to end up in reduced tube life. Actually I never ran a quad of 6L6 tubes until I sold it but liked the 6L6 with the EL34 much better. You can even do that with a Mark IV but you cannot do that with the Mark V.
