    I can't find a straight answer, but everywhere I search, it seems like 5881 is another name for a 6L6. I have a Carvin V3 and am looking to swap tubes soon. I have the stock groove tubes EL34s, and I can't decided what I want. The bias switch has a place for 5881, 6L6, or EL34. I love the tone...

    I bought a few on **** for one of my projects, and they're easily twice as noisy as JJs. I would not recommend them for the first tube (the closest to the input jack) in particular, and in very high gain amps for the second tube in the lead channel as well (location varies). Buyer beware.

    I needed to retube my Mesa Road King so I happened across "Eurotubes" (http://www.eurotubes.com). Bob was extremely helpful and wrote me a loooong email about different tube configurations depending on style and sound desired. I went with the following suggestion from Bob: 4x JJ 6L6GC (Matched...

I will be tracking is my guitar through my Splawn Quickrod and possibly a bass through a DI box of some type. But here's what I'm thinking now: - I've got a good computer (well, I...

    I picked this one up recently under assumption that was going to be the same as Egnater TOL100 head I had before, and the assumption turned out to be incorrect. The lead channel has less gain than TOL100 and voicing is slightly different. The clean channel is Fendery and does "pushed" Fender...

    Hey guys, When I turn my lead channel up, on half and full power, it sounds like you're in a submarine and you can hear a sea monster; that's literally what it sounds like. ;) The speaker just continue to virbrate violently. I switched cabs, and it keeps doing the same thing. I replaced my 6l6s...

    I picked this one up recently under assumption that was going to be the same as Egnater TOL100 head I had before, and the assumption turned out to be incorrect. This combo has the same breathtaking cleans as TOL 100, but the lead channel is quite a bit mellower and has less bottom end. Which, I...
