Questions about replacing tubes

OK Im buying a tube amp (fender bassman300 pro)
I also want to buy enough tubes to replace everything atleast once.
My question is...When your shopping for them, does sextet mean that your buying 6 of em, or is that some kind of code for a specific model?
also, it uses 6 6550 tubes and 2 12Ax7's
what are some good quality brands of those type?

Ibanez SR405

I got an Ibanez SR405 used for $250. Thing works like a charm. Its an active bass with two soapbar pickups, 3-band EQ and pickup blend. Thing works great. Action is great, very good quality materials, awesome stock bass altogether! I wouldn't change anything about it. It has replaced my 60's Jazz Bass I bought for $660. My jazz sounded okay for awhile, it really depends what kind of pickups are in the jazz bass and what sound you are trying to achieve. Just keep trying out as many five string basses as you can and try to keep an open mind. That's what I did and how I fell in love with my new Ibanez!

I had the earlier version of that Ibanez in a five string and it totally blew, I hope they fixed the issues (cheap body wood, shitty pickups, shittier electronics) on those newer ones.

Most peaveys last a very long time. A friend of mine has had his for around five years and it still sounds good

I'm planning on buying a bass kinda soon and wanted to know if anybody knows of a 4 string bass that has a 35" scale length with P and/or J pickups? Could you name a brand and the specific model if you know it?
Thanks in advance for any help.
