Ratings & Reviews
I am a hobbyist without much experience regarding different tubes so I can only say that I replaced the stock Chinese tube with the TAD 6V6 GT in my Gretsch G5222 and I immediately noticed a difference. Overall just clearer and louder. The stock speaker is still not great but both this tube and an EH 12AX7 already make my amp sound 70 % better! Great rapid service from thetubestore! I would definitely buy again from here.
THE VERY BEST 6V6
Very strong construction, soundwise, those tubes have it all. I tried JJ, Tungsol, EH and others and nothing can beat this tube. Biased at 28mA and no problem for this tube. Rich sound from bottom to top.
Ignore the hype
I guess it depends on what type of amp this tube is being used in. How it's advertised as robust and compared to a JJ 6V6, one would think this is a good tube in a single end class A 50s style amp. I bought one of these from another dealer and the bottle was attached to the pins very crooked. Then the bottle broke off from the pin casing. I figured I try another and bought it from tube store. It sucks for sound. I'm going back to JJs.
VERY SPECIAL TUBE
by Tommy_G -
I was looking for a tube that had a tighter and deeper bass of a JJ 6v6, sweeter mids, and a bright but smooth top end. Jon recommended these. Nailed it.
These were a little edgey fresh out of the box but really came into their own after about 10 hours of playtime.
Tone is clear as a bell, and very vibey but not loose.. think "jangley".. and open sounding. Their breakup is smoother than the crunchy more pronounced upper mids of the JJ. All American tones, like a 5881 to my ear.
Never been more satisfied with a tube for a broad range of gain structures.. TAD has something very special with this one.
