Best all around tubes i've tried
These tubes are outstanding. I have a Mesa Boogie DC-5 Rev. A from the early 90s, and I've recently finished tube rolling for a few months straight and found the best combo and it ends with these. With a combinations of new Tungsols and a vintage phase inverter for the preamp, these tubes allow all that fire breathing gain a place to expand. Even with the gain dimed and the volume cranked there is amazing string separation and balance in the tone. So very articulate and the accurately translate everything going on in your signal path. They capture changes in guitars extremely well. I play Prestige Ibanez RG's and an 812 Guitars custom axe, I play mainly blues-based music and heavier styles from hair metal to prog, and all my guitars have a unique sound that remains natural. I was thrashing my 7-string ibby and then a buddy came over and plugged in his SG. The rhythm channel of the DC-5 can get a sweet blues rock grit going and with the SG we were hearing ACDC pure and simple. A strat brought the Jangle out and I had to laugh because i didn't think a Mesa Boogie could capture all these different tones. These tubes are really sick and it's a pleasure that I don't have to spend crazy money on NOS JAN GE 6L6WGB tubes or RCAs or SEDs, which this tube very clearly surpassed. Enjoy it guys! Best 6L6 sound I've heard: big, clear, 3D and versatile. The way it should be.
