Medium mu triode and a sharp cutoff pentode. The pentode section may be used as an IF amplifier or a reactance tube; the triode section is well suited for use in low-frequency-oscillator, sync clipper, sync separator, and phase splitter circuits.
T-6L6WXT+SOVT Vacuum Tube - 6L6WXT+, Sovtek
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.

T-EL84-TUNG Vacuum Tube - EL84 / 6BQ5, Tung-Sol Reissue
Due to many requests by fans, the Tung-Sol EL84/6BQ5 has been reissued. The Tung-Sol EL84 / 6BQ5 was a popular OEM tube for American-made EL84 / 6BQ5 guitar amplifiers, such as those built by Gibson and Harmony. Due to its rugged construction and conservative ratings, it is the most reliable current production EL84 type available for use in Vox AC-30 type amplifiers. In addition, its linearity and tone characteristic make it the ideal replacement for EL84 hi-fi amplifiers, such as those built by Fisher, Scott, and Harmon-Kardon. Tube measurements are as follows:
  • Height: 2.75” (without pins)*
  • Diameter: 0.87”*

*Note: Due to the method of production in regards to the glass, measurements may vary slightly.

T-EL84-RB-TAD Vacuum Tube - EL84-STR, Redbase, Tube Amp Doctor
The all new TAD-EL84-STR Redbase brings together the best of both - the famous EL84-Cz and the EL84M. We opted for the thickest glass possible and the heaviest construction available, just like the Russian EL84M, and combined these features with the sonically most promising cathode plate options, in order to meet and exceed the tonal quality of the EL84-Cz especially with regard to its linearity over the entire frequency range. Finally we added the gold grid wire in order to improve overall reliability. The sound can be described as very harmonic in the middle and treble frequencies, without adding too much power to the bass. The result is the best EL84 in current production. Note: Due to its diameter of 22.5mm, the TAD EL84-STR does not fit into older Marshall DSL401 made till week #20 in 2014 and the UK made VOX AC15 TBX amplifiers from the same time period.
