|JP||6V6 vs. 6L6|
I've got my preamp tubes down and EL84s but can someone elaborate on the following differences (generalized of course and as they relate to the 5E3) between 6V6s & 6L6s:
* General Tonal Characteristics
* Smoothness of breakup (does one go from clean to fully distorted faster?)
* Physical Size
* I know 6L6s are more powerful and have more headroom than 6V6s but is the 6L6 significantly louder before it starts to break up?
* Anything else you think of
Looking for more of a rock sound than a blues or classic 50s sound.
