Octal power tube (Max Plate Watts = 30W) TAD 6L6GC-STR RCA-Style black-plate "TAD has the remakes of the all times favorite 6L6 classics of RCA and GE. The TAD 6L6GC-STR is the perfect choice for the tone of the rock legends with powerful deep bass and clear but pleasing airy top end. The new 6L6GC-STR forwards the low end with pressure and has all the guts and bite to perfectly accomplish all the rocking sounds from R'n'R like SRV to modern NU-Metal and they live and breathe. This TAD 6L6GC-STR combines the famous reliability of the American made Philips/Sylvania STR series plus the our beefed-up black-plate system like the highly regarded vintage RCA 6L6GC tubes. We joined best of both worlds! Silky top end combined with deep bass response and lots of headroom make this tube a living classic. The TAD 6L6GC-STR and the TAD 6L6WGC-STR have our exclusive black-plate designs, gold gird wire, double getter construction, no-noise filaments and 1.2mm thick heavy duty glass envelope. Along with the TAD 6L6WGC-STR (GE-Style) is this TAD 6L6GC-STR our recommendation for excellent tone and maximum lifetime among the 6L6GC type tubes." -Tube Amp Doctor

Definitely a step up in tone and clarity from the 5881 Tung-Sol re-issue pair that were in my Carr Rambler previously.

Tubes do everything in my Carr Rambler that they claim to do which I guess isn't a surprise as Steve Carr puts them in his new production amps nowadays.

Nice even low end and bright but not fizzy top. Selecting the correct phase inverter/driver tube is critical. I got the best results with a NOS Jan/Philips 12AXTWA.

I have a fender blues deluxe reissue that I have swapped many tubes out of, 6l6's and 6v6's. I must say that these tubes are the best sounding tubes I have heard yet. I have tried JJ 6l6 and 6v6 and Groove Tube 6l6 and these just blow them all away. Very big sounding, warm and the bass is round and fat. Doesn't get to boomy. I say give these a try and you will like what your ears are hearing.
