Re: 6V6 vs. 6L6
DD, I've been hearing some good things about Tungsol 5881s here. I have a nice old pair I was going to sell, maybe I should try them in my 5E3. Like you say tone is subjective, I like 6L6s in the 5E3 but with the defart mods and upgraded PT and OT. I have an Allen OT, don't know who actually made it for Allen Amplification. Some say that the American Tungsol 5881s run on lower watts disapation then 6L6s. How many watts idle per tube should I run them at? Al
