Vacuum Tube - 5881, Tung-Sol Reissue
Russian made reissue of the original Tungsol.
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.
Starting at $39.60
Vacuum Tube - EF86, Electro-Harmonix
Electro-Harmonix EF86 pentode preamp tube. Made in Russia.
Vacuum Tube - 6J7 / EF36, Pentode, Sharp Cut-Off
Sharp cut-off general purpose amplifier. With the exception of heater and capacitance ratings, the electrical characteristics are similar to those of the 6C6.
Vacuum Tube - 6L6WXT+, Sovtek
Higher in gain than the 5881WXT, with full base. Modelled after the vintage RCA 6L6GC "blackplate," the Sovtek 6L6WXT+ features larger plate dimensions and improved grid structure for increased power handling capabilities.
The 6L6WXT+ also features mica spacers with metal springs to eliminate tube rattle and microphonics. The Sovtek 6L6WXT+ yields a 20% higher output than the Sovtek 5881WXT and offers superior tone and overall performance to any 6L6 or KT66. The ultimate 6L6, the WXT+ will improve the sound of any 6L6 guitar amplifier.
