Russian made reissue of the original Tung-Sol. The 5881 is the electrical equivalent to types 6L6 and 6L6G except that the plate and screen dissipation ratings have been increased approximately 20 percent. It embodies a complete mechanical redesign which results in greater resistance to shock and vibration.

I have been using these in my Victoria amplifiers (45410T, Victorilux, and a Golden Melody) for a few years now. They sound great, very low noise, and they seem to last awhile. I have not received a bad one as of yet.

I found what I needed, place my order and was surprise how fast I received my electronic parts.

Thank You, AES

I buy and sell amps on a regular basis. While doing this, I ran across a deal on a Victoria Victorilux 4x10 model that had two Tung Sol 5881's in it. This amp sounded amazing. So when I had the chance to by a Victoria 45410 (Tweed Bassman) I jumped at the chance. It sounded pretty good as well but seemed it was missing something. I checked the tubes and found a Chinese made 5AR4 rectifier tube, along with another brand of 5881' power tubes. I replaced the 5AR4 with a Mullard, and replaced the outputs with the Tung Sol's. This made this amp come to life! It sounds as good, actually a little better than the Victorilux. The Tung Sol's have approx 30-40 hrs on them, they sound very smooth, and break up oh soooo sweet when driven. You can't go wrong with these!
