The JJ Electronic 6V6S is another modern classic from JJ. This 6V6 has the standard rugged construction we’ve come to expect from JJ which allows it handle much higher plate voltages than the typical 6V6 tube. The JJ 6V6 can even be used in place of a 6L6 in some amplifiers. Overall this tube has a warm and balanced tone with incredible separation and response. The highs come in clean and smooth with a lot of clarity. The mids are full and distinctive. The lows are fat and punchy. These tubes can cover a spectrum of sounds and styles all within the same amplifier.

Yes, these can be used in place of the Groove Tube 6V6s. We only offer these in Apex matched sets, but we feel Apex tube matching is the best service in the industry. You can request low, medium, or high numbers if you have a preference.

Low numbers will give a player access to earlier breakup, while high numbers will offer more clean headroom from the amp.

J&J is my first choice in vacuum tubes for guitar and audio amps. Antique Electronics offers excellent range of products and has great customer service

Picked the J&J Apex matched burned in pair for my Mojo-Princeton Reverb... no regrets.

I purchased a pair of matched 6v6 JJ tubes. Initially I was sent the wrong tubes, I received 6K6 tubes instead. I called customer service and spoke to Mr. Wesley Fleck, who provided me with a shipping label to send the wrong tubes back. He also assured me that he would personally pick the order for my new tubes and they would be sent out ASAP. Sure enough the new tubes were sent, the tube packaging was damaged in shipping and one of the boxes was crushed although the tubes themselves were thankfully received in good condition. They produce a great quality sound, and I will be purchasing from AES again thanks to Wesley's fantastic customer service.

Thanks for this “current 40” matched 6V6 set. So much better sounding and more lively in my ‘65 Princeton, than the “current 29” set you sent last summer. These (in the 43 to 40 range) are the game changer for this already smoking amp! Thanks so much.

I've built and sold several 5F1 amp heads recently. I like using a JJ 6V6S power tube in them for their consistently excellent sound and reliability. JJs have never let me down in this regard.

Great

JJ's seem to be the best bang for the buck and handle high voltage well.
