    New posts. The only answers to these questions are generalities. RussB low rent hobbyist. But the fact remains that s and 6L6s are fundamentally one and the same. TweeDLX said:.

    Now the important differences between the 6L6GC tube and the tube is plate voltages and power dissipation.Supporting Membership.

    's are actually a lower powered tube than a 6L6GC. So that translates into less headroom. If you want power tube breakup go for That.Mr Willy's avatar is awesome too huge Gilmour fan.

    rutex.online › insync › versus-6l6-tubes.One deciding factor about using 's or 6L6GC's would be the plate voltage of your amp.

    A: We have to speak in generalities here, because tube types vary widely, depending on the manufacturer and vintage of the tube. In tech terms.Well, something like that anyway.

    The tone is very balanced with no notable weighting in the response. I did find that it was softer than a 6L6, there's no big bass thump and no sparkling highs.Now a was an industrial version that is a 23 watt tube.

    Bottom line is you should use a 6L6GC or a current production but DO NOT use any old stock 's or any of the 19 watt 6L6 variants.That tube is drawing way too much current and will blow and possibly take other components with it.

    But they are nothing like the original ,which has a lower max output and can only take about plate volts compared to for the 6L6GC.The Steel Guitar Forum S.

    He hated 6L6s in his because they were really scooped, and the s give a little more compressed tone. Well, sounds like that might solve my.So my buddy IRL Mr.

    Modern Russian s are neither s nor 6L6GCs but something in between.

    This is in many ways the case with the 6L6 and the 6V6 valves as well.

    Before production was stopped in the USA and most of Europe power tubes didnt really need to be biased as they came out of the box with a specific current draw and you could rely on them to perform to spec.

    The can handle the high plate voltage V of a 6L6GC but put out less power.

    Some boutique amp builders will do custom amps that work with the older tubes at the request of their customers.
