Sino states that this tube is rated at 400V.

The RCA Tube Manual lists a maximum of 450v on the 6L6GC plate. I would say WGC is ok with 500v as long as bias is set to keep the idle plate disapation within its 30w rating.

The plate dissipation on these tubes is 30 watts with 550 DC plate voltage.

These should work in a Super Reverb or any application that calls for a 6L6GC.

I'm using a quad of these in one of my Peavey ValveKing's VK100 heads. It originally had Ruby's in it and they were ok. When I switched over, there wasn't a volume change as much as a spatial / dimensional change. All things being equal with the preamp tubes, these tall chinese, as I call them, made the ValveKing tone brighter than the Ruby's and also added more dimensionality to the sound. It was like slightly turning up the treble and presence a bit, but I never changed the knobs at all. To describe it in another way, the lead notes and chords on the crunch channel jumped out more, were more defined and audible. Something a kin to a 3D type effect or if you added a BBE Sonic Stomp.
I actually ordered the wrong tubes. My amp tech suggested for the ValveKing since it has a fixed bias to get a hot set of the short chinese tubes. (you have to request a hot set or you'll get mediums) But I'm quite happy with these. That still leaves my other ValveKing head with a mismatched set of GrooveTubes to be replaced. So I"ll get the short chinese tubes and I'm sure they'll work out as well or even better than the tall chinese tubes.
