Vacuum Tube - 6L6WXT+, Sovtek

Starting at: $24.95
In Stock

Higher in gain than the 5881WXT, with full base. Sovtek is proud to announce the release of their new 6L6WXT+ vacuum tube. Modelled after the vintage RCA 6L6GC "blackplate," the Sovtek 6L6WXT+ features larger plate dimensions and improved grid structure for increased power handling capabilities. The 6L6WXT+ also features mica spacers with metal springs to eliminate tube rattle and microphonics. The Sovtek 6L6WXT+ yields a 20% higher output than the Sovtek 5881WXT and offers superior tone and overall performance to any 6L6 or KT66. The ultimate 6L6, the WXT+ will improve the sound of any 6L6 guitar amplifier.

Much better than what I had in my amplifier. Basically replaced stock tubes. Sounds great! Should last me a while. I picked these because many have stated that Russian tubes are best.

My Peavey Encore 65 was humming worse all the time. I put the new Sovtek 6L6 WXT and all quiet now. Huge difference. Great price fast delivery.
