    Sovtek 6L6's in a 5150

    Ok, i recently just purchased a 5150 block logo head on ebay, i should be getting it by the end of the week and the guy said theres 4 Sovtek 6L6 tubes in the power amp section.... how would these sound in the 5150? would anyone recommend anything else? or should these suit it just fine.... im just curious.

    I'm sure these tubes will be fine. When you get it, play through it and then YOU tell US if you like it.

    I would say the best power tubes that I've heard in a 5150 are JJ's 6L6GC's. I have tried SED's in there as well...and they seem to have a more EL34 sound...they're a little dark for me. The JJ's are nice and warm. I would also replace all the preamp tubes as well...and put a EH in the V1 position with JJ's ecc83's in the rest. Get a hold of Bob at Eurotubes.com. Let him know what you have and he'll set you up.
