The first electronic amplification of sound was done with Vacuum Tubes. We have pre-amp, power and rectifier vacuum tubes among other types in New Old Stock from the golden era of American & European manufacturing as well as current production tubes from today.
Vacuum Tube - 6L6GCM-STR, Redbase, Tube Amp Doctor
The TAD 6L6GCM-STR REDBASE is Tube Amp Doctor's latest 6L6GC; designed and built to be the best 6L6 type tube ever manufactured. A high claim, but Tube Amp Doctor is sure that they have achieved exactly that. In terms of sound, the TAD 6L6GCM-STR REDBASE produces the powerful but always defined bass response known from the legendary american built NOS RCA 6L6GC, with clear, unobtrusive and yet transparent highs.
