Svetlana Electron Devices, St. Petersburg: The Svetlana winged C is a major Russian power-tube manufacturer. Formerly a part of the huge Svetlana collective factory. The valves that we stock under the Svetlana/winged C are the original items made by the JSC Svetlana Company that owns and operates the Svetlana factory in St. Petersburg, Russia. This factory has a long history of making valves and transmitting valves .In fact have been making vacuum tubes for over 100 years. These valves have constantly topped not only our own valve reviews but also in audio and guitar reviews the world over. They offer some of the best sounding types available today.
Mesa Select for use in Mesa Boogies

This valve is specially selected to run in Mesa Boogies fixed bias arrangement and will work in all Boogie that use 6L6GC.

The Svetlana 6L6GC was designed based on the famous Sylvania STR 387 6L6GC and manufactured in the JSC Svetlana factory in St. Petersburg, Russia. These are the Original Svetlana 6L6GC which are also known as Winged C due to the company’s original trade mark logo that is on the valve.

The Svetlana 6L6GC tight manufacturing specification and tolerances and improved processing provided the best made modern 6L6GC with improved reliability and superior sonic performance that rivalled the old USA made valves.

The Svetlana 6L6GC features thick mica spacers and internal bracing to help reduce vibrations and microphonics. It features a gold plated molybdenum alloy control grid and graphite coated screen grid to reduce secondary emission.

The valve produces an even and rich soundstage without sounding muddy under full distortion. This is the best clean sounding current production 6L6GC made today. The treble is clear and smooth and has a nice chime when used in Fenders close to the old USA made Philips Sylvania sound.

The bass response is rock solid and very well balanced. The top end is very smooth with no hardness. They come dual matched in pairs and quads as is without doubt the best sounding 6L6GC on the market today.

Mesa Boogie used the Svetlana winged C as their 6L6 STR 454 but has not been available for some time. Many Boogie players feel that this is one of the best sounding 6L6GC and indeed the Svetlana winged C has a reputation second to none.

Ideal to Upgrade your Boogie over the Chinese STR 440 that all Boogies are now shipped with.
