The flagship of the GT 6L6 line, it looks and sounds exactly like the original G.E. tube used by Fender® in the '50s and '60s. It took more than four years to develop, and has stunning clarity and power.
Vacuum Tube - KT66, JJ Electronics
A sonically faithful reproduction of the original tubes with a robust construction encased in a thick glass envelope. The JJ KT66 delivers a powerful 25 Watts with plenty of headroom. This tube has a tone that is warm, thick, and straightforward. With a more balanced sound than the 6L6GC, the JJ KT66 is an excellent choice for a full bodied tone.
Starting at $39.95
Vacuum Tube - 12AU7A / ECC82, Tube Amp Doctor, Premium Selected
The Perfect Choice for Stereo Audio Applications - Ideal as a Balanced Driver. Latest revision providing great musical performance and rich tone. This TAD 12AU7A / ECC82 has especially strong systems which are selected to provide two symmetric triodes. The perfect choice for stereo audio applications and ideal as a balanced driver.
Vacuum Tube - KT66, Tube Amp Doctor, Premium Selected
The Tube Amp Doctor KT-66 is an incredible remake of the classic British tube. With its large glass envelope contoured by smooth curves tapering into a rounded brown base, the TAD KT-66 not only looks like the original, it performs like the original. This KT66 offers plenty of headroom for a thick full bodied sound with smooth yet articulate highs. The KT-66 is famously used in vintage British plexi amps and makes a great replacement for that style of amplifier and many others. The TAD KT66 is matched for both plate current and transconductance and passes all of the tests of the TAD Premium Selection process. The TAD KT-66 can be used in any KT-66 position as well as 6L6GC and 5881 amps that can supply the required 1.27A for the heater.
Starting at $27.95
Vacuum Tube - 5AR4, Tung-Sol Reissue
Tung Sol 5AR4 rectifier tube. Made in Russia. Premium directly heated heavy duty rectifier Diode. Helps extend the life of the other valves in the amplifier by allowing them to heat up before plate voltage is applied. Tung-Sol tubes reflect the best in vintage construction with unsurpassed tone and reliability.
- Low internal voltage drop & controlled heater warm up time
- Excellent choice for both Hifi and instrument amplification
- Replacement/upgrade for all 5AR4/GZ34 types
