EHX are made by the same (formerly Reflektor) Russian  factory that makes Sovtek, Mullard, TungSol

I buy JJ brands through Eurotubes dot com. They've got some pretty good testing equipment, good prices, good service. 
http://www.eurotubes.com/store/pc/viewCategories.asp?idCategory=58

Note that the JJ 6v6S can be slotted into high plate voltage amps that normally use 6L6 and EL34s (Fender Hot Rods, etc.) where the Sovteks, EH, etc., can not. 
The JJ 6v6S is about $16.

the jj one's pretty nice- possibly more like a 6L6. I don't think it's dark at all- I think it's the other JJ tubes which are dark (preamp tubes mainly?).

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

I just realized that it was JJ Power tubes I put in my Rockerverb, not EHX. The pre amp tubes were all EHX The JJ's sounded great! I agree with DAVE that the only time I've complained about a JJ being dark was when using their 12ax7 in the preamp of my AC30 and Jet City. They're great cost effective tubes.

I've got JJ's 12ax7 in the pre amp my Valve Jr and its perfect. And in the power section EH el84. I'm gonna try that combo first with the 6v6.

I swear by JJ on just about anything. I have 40 brand new JJ12AX7s. A dozen JJ EL34L, 8 JJ 6L6's a dozen EL84s and a quad of brand new JJ 6V6's.and a mixture of at least 50 preamp tubes of other brands and some NOS pres, and a few NOS power tubes.

I buy from tube depot when they go in sale.

Good deal. I think I'll pick up a JJ el34 along with the 6v6. Wondering if the VHT will dethrone my Valve Jr. Kinda doubt it, but gonna be fun to find out.

^ i'd say the vht is nicer, but then you have a v3 VJ where they fixed a lot of the previous problems, so
