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.

  • Great, Solid Tube

    As reviewed by Kyle on 4/29/2009

    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.

  • Great price, great tone!

    As reviewed by Jeremy on 5/13/2011

    I used these to replaced the power tubes in my Bugera 1990, and the difference was noticed immediately! They are very responsive and sound awesome. They have a great bluesy feel to them. Lots of headroom to play with. Very pleased! I have only rocked out on these for about 2 hours, but they sound great and appear to be of good quality.

  • Good for old Ampeg's

    As reviewed by Kevin on 8/31/2006

    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.
