From our review: The tube has a nice balanced sound that is not as bottom heavy as say the TAD and not as bright as the SED. The midrange response is very nice. No honk and no really pronounced EQ shelving as you manipulate the tone controls of the amp. Very smooth and balanced frequency response that sounds great driving Celestion speakers which tend to be a bit honky in the mids and extreme in the Bass and Treble. Clean sounds are pretty chimey and overdrive is thick with lots of sustain...more



This Svetlana 6L6GC tube is manufactured at the New Sensor Corp. owned Xpo-Pul factory (also known as Reflektor) in Saratov, Russia. Use it to replace all other 6L6 and 5881 tube types. Solid construction and build quality and all test great on our equipment.

Rock and Blues Tone!!!

by

Just had a set of these finally go bad after 4 years of every weekend use in my JCM 900 Marshall. Also just reordered them. My amp tech recommended these for my style of playing, and he couldn't have been more right. I use Tung-sols in the preamp, best overall tone I've ever had. Nice, glassy overdrive, with plenty of punch. The ultimate "Les Paul thru a Marshall" tone.

The Svetlana 6l6GC's I ordered arrived quickly and have increased the output (and tonal quality) in my old DeArmond amp!

Preliminary Review

by

I received these tubes today, so this is not a long-term review. Replaced two JJs (and I also put a 5751 in V1) in my Rivera Chubster. It made a difference in tone. The amp sounds much smoother, with less mid-range gain or barking. I prefer a Fender Blackface tone in the clean channel, and this tube change was a significant improvement.



Interesting though because I have been told that tube rolling doesn't do much for a significant change in tone, and I have been told to use the tube types that came with the amp because the amp was designed around those tubes. Not true here. In this respect, the Rivera seems very accommodating, even though Rivera themselves told me to stick with stock type tubes. Their amp adjusted well. However, I doubt this is true for all amps. For example, I have other amps where I tried tube rolling, and nothing was accomplished - did absolutely nothing to change tone. I guess some amps just have their characteristic tone, and there is nothing I can do about it.



Thanks Tube Store for the tube reviews, that helps!!!
