Re: good use for 6sn7
I've got an old Gibson GA50T that I got in highschool back in the 60's. It has a 6SN7 for the phase inverter driving a pair of 6l6's for the final stage. The preamps are 6SJ7's. That sure is a sweet old amp! To my ears, the 6SJ7's and 6SN7's sound smoother and less "gainy" (if that's even a word) than the 12ax7's do in my Deluxe Reverb. But there are a lot of ckt. differances between those two amps too. The old amps with the 6s::'s made great jazz amps!
