The Tung-sol reissue valves are produced by the Sovtek Corporation to high standards at their reflector plant. These are recreations of some of the most popular Audio and guitar valves and they also produce some original designs under the Tung Sol name such as the KT120. These valve are used by original equipment manufactures the work over for their sound quality and reliability.
The Tung Sol 6L6GC STR reissue is a remake of the classic early American 5881 design from the late 1950s. Importantly this valve has had its specification improved to provide 30 watt plate dissipation like a normal 6L6GC unlike the Tung sol reissue 5881. So you can use this valve in all modern as well as vintage amplifiers.

The Reissue features a very rugged design and uses a black anode coating which slightly changes it performance giving a nice smooth, warm sound. This valve under extreme settings does have better control and a smoother treble than its smaller 5881 brother.

This Tung Sol 6L6GC STR provides a real thick tone with more bass extension than the 5881 Tung Sol RI. This is a great all round 6L6GC if you want a tight and punchy sound.

We found this a great tube in Fenders if you are looking for an upgrade to the 5881WXT Sovtek and Groove tube 6L6R for a similar price.

We have these in matched Pairs and matched Quads
