From our review of the Tung-Sol 6V6GT: "The Tung-Sol 6V6-GT is an outstanding tube and I feel it delivers a much smoother overdrive that you could describe as creamy instead of crunchy. The sound is better defined than the Electro Harmonix with less compression than EH or JJ."

Ratings & Reviews
Smooth, very smooth
Just re-tubed an Ibanez TSA15H with sets of the Tung-Sol 12AX7 and 6V6GT. Smooth and warm when clean or with the boost. Plenty of gain and crunch with the Tubescreamer circuit engaged or with pedals.
I appreciate the QC and matching. Very happy.
Swapped out an old set of JJ 6V6-S in my Egnater Tweaker 15 head. Instantly could tell there was less compression than JJ's and very clear top end. Whatever you dish out, it responds nicely. JJ's are great too but these Tung-Sol 6V6G tubes are a new favorite.
Also note: Tung-Sol 12ax7 in my V1 and a Preferred Series 7025 in the phase inverter.
Smooth as silk
This should tell you how GREAT these sound - I had bought a matched set for my 76 Fender Deluxe Reverb about 10-11 months ago. Then last week one of the tube failed- burning a screen grid resistor and two 100k resistors at the pilot lamp. Tho with my level of expertise, I probably shouldn't throw full blame on the tube. Those resistors are going on 40 years old.. ANYWAY, point being, despite the last one's fairly short life span, I am ordering a replacement set of the exact same thing because THE TONE IS LUSCIOUS!!!!
Snap Crackle Pop 6V6
Just tried to swap out the stock 12AX7 and 6V6GT in my new Fender Champ 600 with Tung Sol replacements. Sounded fine at first...but it only lasted 15 mins until the amp went 'snap crackle pop' and the Tung Sol 6V6 crapped out. Hmmmmm

I replaced the tubes in my Fender Super Champ X2 head with a matched pair of these and a Preferred Series 7025 / 12AX7. I'm using a Epiphone Valve Jr. Cab with a Eminence Red White & Blues speaker. I also biased my amp, only do this if you know what you're doing, lethal voltages involved could cause death. This now gives me the perfect vintage fender champ / reverb tone. It's got the full bottom with the top end chime and a sturdy mid range. It now gets that nice top end break up without the ice pick, and endless harmonics without any noise. After a good break in... I love new tube smell ... everything evened out and is sonically rich and sound with great blossom and sustain. Great combo on tubes for this set up and excellent information on this here site. The info really helped me inform my decision on my desired tone. Rock on ya'll.
