BEST 6L6GC on the Market
by James McCutcheon
I tried at least 10 types of Power Tubes in my Collection of 1960's Silvertone Ampliers sold by Sears and Roebuck company. the 1484 and 1483 and 1485. Once I put a part of these in the 1483 known as a bass amp, * it is Not" it got quiet no noise in the circuit. then TONE it sounded better that any tube I have tried. Everything has been said that is good. I WILL SAY the TUBE STORE sells great product, and no Junk goes to the customer. THANKS!
Very good tube
I ordered a quad for my Fender Twin 135 watt. They were matched well by the tubestore. Construction seems sturdy and professional. They allowed my amp to come to life. They have clean, detailed, rich harmonics and a low noise floor. Its a very balanced sound. Fun to play through. They sounded great at the Fender factory bias setting. My Twin was set up to run them at 48% plate dissipation. I ended up biasing them to 55%. That setting is a happy medium that works nicely for clean guitar playing as well as the more rocking stuff. Just a touch of subtly compressed warmth there if you want it. Heavy Les Paul tunes sound quite spectacular with higher bias settings. I haven't tried the SEDs or the 7581As but I would certainly recommend these tubes for the price.
A beauty for audio gear!

This review is for people not using this tube in a guitar amp but looking to use it in audio(phile) equipment. I love this tube! I am using it in a pair of Quicksilver Mid Mono amps and I am amazed at the quality of the sound I am getting. I hear a clear tone with punch in the bass, nothing soft or flabby. The midrange is clean, rich, and very realistic sounding, with a "3D" presence. Though it sounds like a cliche` I am experiencing from familiar recordings things I have not heard before. All in all, this tube gives the listener a "warm" tube sound that sounds sweet like live music can, but without sacrificing detail, it has punch in the lower register, and the highs are loveable, inviting, not hard or "scratchy". If you have old Mac gear that needs a 6L6 tube I would look no further. This re-issue is a home run!
