Vacuum Tube - 5881 / 6L6WGB, Tetrode, Beam Power
The 5881 is the electrical equivalent to types 6L6 and 6L6GC except that the plate and screen dissipation ratings have been increased approximately 20 percent.
$59.90
Vacuum Tube - 5881 / 6L6WGC, Sovtek
The 5881 is a very reliable tube that is widely used in many current production tube amplifiers. It has a warm tone with good 'bite.' This modern version is able to tolerate higher voltages than its 5881 / 6L6 cousins. The Sovtek 5881 delivers a warm, round tone that "sweetens" any vintage or modern guitar amp design. Built to rigid military standards, the 5881 will tolerate higher voltages than any other 6L6. In fact, they're frequently used as replacements for the old 7027 model in vintage Ampegs. Extremely consistent from piece to piece.
Starting at $36.45
Vacuum Tube - 5881, Classic Series, Psvane
The Psvane 5881 is a high quality beam power pentode with an octal base. The Psvane 5881 is noted for its outstanding sound and is an excellent choice for both guitar and stereo amplifiers. The 5881 is similar to 6L6 tubes but with a maximum plate dissipation of 23W. The Psvane Classic Series is focused on the reproduction of popular vacuum tubes found in classic audio equipment. When designing the Classic Series, Psvane collected the most sought-after NOS tubes and analyzed each element of their construction, incorporating the most effective manufacturing techniques to produce stable tubes with excellent sound. Whether used in guitar amplifiers or hifi stereo systems, the Psvane Classic Series vacuum tubes excel in all applications. Psvane has been producing high quality vacuum tubes since 2011. The Psvane team originally formed in Shuguang’s high-end tube division but eventually split off to form their own brand.
Starting at $24.45
Vacuum Tube - 5881, JJ Electronics
The JJ Electronic 5881 is very similar to the 6L6GC but with a plate dissipation of 23W rather than 30W. Another physical difference is the shorter bulb. These tubes have a soft and balanced response that sounds great in both guitar amps and hifi equipment. The JJ 5881 will work in any amp that uses 6L6 tubes.
