Tung Sol 6V6GT Power Tubes
Originally designed in the 1930's the 6V6 beam-power tube is a lower powered version of the 6L6 and is ideal for Hi-Fi and guitar amplifiers
Some of the best amplifiers in the world utilise the 6V6 in the designs. A favourite in the tweed amps of yesteryear, you find a lot of the amps developed across the 1950's, 60's and even the 1970s liked the 6V6 tube as an option. The produce half the power of the 6L6 but not everything in life is about having a loud amp. They are a well-rounded tube producing a smooth rich distortion and help bring to life some of the best amps ever designed. Fender and Gibson have utilised the 6V6 tube in many of the amps over time.
The Tung-Sol version of the 6V6 was often used as the default tube sold with these earlier model amplifiers and for good reason. The power tube covers the range of sound that the tweed amps are famous for.. I use these in my 5E3 builds, I often recommend the customers try JJ, EH, Tung-Sol and Mullard. I think it would be wrong of me to say which is best as sound is personal but there is no doubt that these Tung-Sol tubes perform well in amps. A favourite amongst technicians we sell to.
In general, a very balanced tone. It can be used also in some 6L6 amplifiers. A classic brand and favourite amongst guitarist and HI-Fi aficionados. I personally have used these in a few of my 5E3 builds and I love the sound.
