From our review of the Tungsol KT66 tube: "Big and open with very solid lows and smooth treble response. The mids are well balanced and don’t go to the extremes of sounding scooped or nasal."

If your amp has "bear trap" tube retainers they will have to go because of the size of the tube's base but also the bear trap clamp will ground the metal base to the chassis and cause a malfunction. The Tung-Sol name and trademark have been acquired by the New Sensor Corporation. This new production Tungsol tube is manufactured at their Xpo-Pul factory (also known as Reflektor) in Saratov, Russia. New Sensor is an American corporation and since taking ownership of this factory has been steadily improving the quality of current production tubes.

Tung-Sol TS-KT66 review

by

WOW!! What an improvement. Put a set into a JTM 45 that I use as a clean platform for pedals.Huge sounding valve. The entire frequency spectrum is enhanced by this tube. My Strat has never sounded so good. Highly recommended.

Fantastic in a W5-M amp

Nice tube. The sound is very detailed, top to bottom with deep bass and super clear high. These tubes have a headroom with a lot of reserve. Bias is super stable. No complaints so far.

An awesome tube for audio

This review focuses on the TungSol KT66 for use as an audio(phile) tube. I am using a matched quad (one pair each) in some Quicksilver Mid-Mono amps and I am most impressed. I replaced some TungSol 6L6STR tubes with the KT66 tubes and what a difference! While the STR tubes are good, the KT66 tube is the STR on steroids! The sound is huge while the midrange is clean but not hard sounding, detail is excellent, the bass is more pronounced and the highs are also clean, clear and sweet without sounding etched or "screechy". I actually like these better than the Gold Lion KT66 tube, at least in the Quicksilver amps as the TungSol is sweeter and to me, sounds more lifelike. I am glad my amps allow me to use these for these are a true high end bargain.
