Re: 6L6 or EL34??
it doesnt whatsoever matter what tube persay u you
ive heard plenty of el34, and el84 type amps sound just like 6l6 6550 5881 style amps
its all in the circuitry
but notably el34 mudd out, wich is desired for chording and some breakup, but for true handling its the 6l6 wich does not mudd out infact is has a sharper sawtooth type wave, when a el34 is a boxier rounded edge wave
6l6 responds faster
so for faster licks and more defined notes and punchier amp responce for speakers its all about 6l6
for more strung out notes and teh voilin like sustain when you play for instance, its a el34 type....
its all msuic to your ears
but on the other hand a 6l6 can soundlike a el34 is u are using a great preamp, but a el34 wont every sound like a 6l6
