Product Reviews

5.00 out of 5 based on 1 reviews
Pissed Plexi - June 23rd, 2023
5 out of 5

These 6550's sound just like the old ones they replaced. Excellent! I haven't tried any other version/brand as I am happy with the JJ's. Plug and play Apex matched pair into my cathode biased Marshall SC800H(with Lynch Module)sitting on my Fender Bassbreaker 212 cab loaded with a Redback/V30 mix. No pedals. Proper Marshall bark and kerrang. Will not be going back to EL34's or 6CA7's in this amp.
