The normal 6E5 is 6 pin base and "bulb" shape.

The 6E5C is straight sided and octal base.


So if you change the tube socket or there is space for an octal to 6 pin adaptor (by moving the existing base which usually isn't on the chassis), then yes it should work. The pattern is the same and the sensitivity should be similar.
