The JJ Electronic 6V6S is another modern classic from JJ. This 6V6 has the standard rugged construction we’ve come to expect from JJ which allows it handle much higher plate voltages than the typical 6V6 tube. The JJ 6V6 can even be used in place of a 6L6 in some amplifiers. Overall this tube has a warm and balanced tone with incredible separation and response. The highs come in clean and smooth with a lot of clarity. The mids are full and distinctive. The lows are fat and punchy. These tubes can cover a spectrum of sounds and styles all within the same amplifier.

These will not work as the RD45 calls for 6L6 tubes, not 6V6s.

Having previously own vintage Fenders with 1960s USA RCA 6V6 GTA power tubes, I think the JJ 6V6 has a lot of the character of that great vintage tube along with a more pleasing high end. The JJ has that firm thump on the low end with the perfect balance of mids and sparkling but pleasing highs. These tubes are very expressive and open sounding. They bring out the best in an amp.

I play at home and haven't changed my tubes for going on 6 yrs. I've had the original JJ's in my amp that whole time and figured to drop a new set in. they weren't failing but been bored during these times and decided to change them out. anyway, the new ones after some hours on them sound just like the ones I took out. These sound really good and you can count on them for quite some time.

The JJ 6V6S sounds fantastic especially in single-tube low power guitar amps.

Produce was very well protected during shipment. The 6v6s JJ's are a great replacement/upgrade to the original GT 6v6s originally installed in my Fender PRRI. Thoroughly satisfied.

Never used JJ's before but I ordered one of these and a JJ 12ax7 for my Vibro-Champ XD and the power tube rattles even when it's not in the amp. Could of happened in shipping I guess, will have to see how the replacement works.
