which tube sounds better?

which tube sounds better?
I'm curios if any one knows who supplied Rat Shack with their 6L6GC tubes in the old days? I'm going to embarass myself and say that there is something associated with Rat Shack, besides the solder, that works right. I tried a pair of NOS Phillips JAN 6L6GC's, Sovtek 5881's, and the aforementioned in my Fender' and to my suprise, RS was "better". They tested with a gain of 39 to the 5881's gain of 65(arbitrary tbe tester units).

Richie I think some of the old RS tubes -- 3/1/2000 5:56 AM
