Totally Tweed! The preferred OEM tube of '50s-era Fender Tweed Champ and Deluxe amplifiers The Tung-Sol 6V6 has a geometry designed to safely handle the higher voltages used in guitar amps " plus heavier plate and grid materials. The result.. better mids and bottom while keeping the smooth top of the classic 6V6's. The Tung-Sol 6V6 breaks up evenly from low E to high up the neck. Blues players will LOVE these tubes for the way they sing!

Tube life varies on the application/circuit in which it is used as well as how hard it is pushed when in use.The amount of play hours is also a factor. Unfortunately there is not a set time frame for how long tubes will last.

These tubes have 6 pins and will work in any situation that calls for a 6V6.

Bought my second set of these because they shine in my little Class A two stroke amp I built a while back. I get the hard (H) set for more clean headroom. It’s about 8 watts but it’s loud and sweet. The trebles are awesome as well with musical mids. Compared to the EH6V6GT, these are louder and chimier. No comparison really. So much so I bought a 3rd pair as a backup. Love these TungSols!

I own a Fender American Hand-Wired '64 CUSTOM PRINCETON REVERB which had some microphonic tubes.
After reviewing some possibilities I decided to completly retube with new re-issue Tung-Sol tubes (2x6V6, 3x12AX7, 1x12AT7 and 1x5AR4). This setup sounds a little warmer and more dynamic than the stock tubes in my opinion. I'm thrilled withe the results! Great service (ease of purchase and prompt shipping) from Antique Electronic Supply. Highly recommend!

Tung-Sol. The only tube you can get that's better is a NOS RCA. Best buys for your money. Put in all my builds!

The tubes are well made and vibration free. They were also a well matched. They are a little cooler sounding than JJ's 6v6s biased similarly. However, I don't think I would have any issue running these at 14 watts. Running them at ~12 watts, they sound clean and accurate.

So far so good. These tung sol tubes were a replacement for a brand new set of JJ’s that were rattling in a 5E3 tweed deluxe. Apparently the JJ’s couldn’t handle the power needed for the circuit.

It's said blues power tube. Yes, I agree. If you keep it in the range of suitable bias,this tube talks, sings with your guitar string control.

Great Tubes! They have a smoother breakup than the TAD tubes. Highly recommended!

The 6V6 Tungsol Reissue is superb! I used vintage Tungsol tubes in my guitar amps in the past, and I feel that the reissues, though have slightly different texture, live up to the tubes that Tungsol used to make. Clear without being overly hyped in the highs, and a great smooth tone with great bloom in big barre chords, or gentle articulation with chords with extended voicings (aka "jazz [email protected]). Use them in a blackface Princeton. Highly recommended.
