Overview

The Svetlana 6L6 Medium tubes have the classic Sylvania STR sound.
Soft, medium, and hard style descriptions refer to break up modes of the tube for an overdriven guitar signal. Soft-rated tubes break up easier and have the least headroom, yielding a heavier, harder distortion. In comparison, hard-rated tubes must be driven harder to yield a distortion which typically ends up being thinner and warmer sounding distortion, while medium-rated tubes fall in between.

Nice

By JEFF PHARRIS

from San Diego

I've always used NOS tubes in my vintage amps. My Revered Hellhound is a newer amp and the circut does not respond like I thought it would with NOS tubes. I replaced the original Sovteks(because they were getting tierd) with a duet of Svetlana red/soft 6L6GC. Very impressed! Now it sounds like it did when new. Shipping was fast. I may have to order another set as spares.

Sounds pretty good so far

By Andrew Meyer

from Oak Lawn, IL

I got a set of the red/soft biased tubes for my Egnater Tweaker 40. They sounded kind of flabby on the low end at first, but after a few days of break in that mostly went away. Did some tweaking and now the flabbiness is pretty much gone. Once I got past this they were definitely an improvement over the stock Ruby tubes. They've added a lot more harmonic character to the amp, which is most prominent on the "hot" setting. I didn't like the "hot" setting before; I used to just drive the hell out of the "clean" setting, which sounded amazing but was way too loud. Now I'm getting pretty close to the same sound at lower volumes on the "hot" setting. They seem solidly built, they've been in the amp for about a month now and I haven't had any problems. They're also shorter than the stock Ruby tubes, which makes regular maintenance a lot easier (used to have to remove the tubes to get the chassis out of the enclosure).

Great, Solid Tube

By Kyle

from Dallas, TX

I finally bought these tubes after years of using EL34s. I decided to go with the Red/Soft Svetlana tubes because not only are they Russian, but they are the least expensive duet I can find anywhere! When they arrived, I could immediately feel the tube responding to my playing. It has a very nice, tight clean and a wonderful, smooth breakup. For the price, I thought I may be compromising quality, but it has so far surpassed my expectations. I haven't had the tubes for more than 10 days, so I can't comment on how long they will last. I expect it to last as long as the 34s I took out, but regardless, I'll be buying the same tube again when the time comes.

Good for old Ampeg's

By Kevin

from Loomis, CA

My old Ampeg requires 2 7027A's which are hard to come by. For many Ampeg amps these can be used instead of the 7027's. Warning-if used in the wrong application you could get hurt! As I understand it, 6l6's can be used in all the old Ampeg tube amps except for the b-15, but do your homewrok first for safety! 7027 have 8 prongs at the bottom, 6l6's have six. But in most old Ampeg's those two extra prongs do nothing. Those amps were smartly designed to take other tube types. I am not sure about such a conversion with other amp manufacturers. That being said, these sound great and saved me a bunch of money.
