TAD 6L6GC STR Pair
Andrew G., 15.05.2013
I bought these for my Boogie MKIV. I've used them before for an older MKIII and was happy with the sound. They are good in the MKIV too. Makes the amp sound full and smooth. I don't like the way the bottles are so off center though. One being very exaggerated. I doesn't fill me with confidence that they have good quality control. The products should look good as well as sound it! They are not the cheapest on the market after all...

What to say about these... they are well build, they are noiseless, they are warm...
But they don't perform well enough for me. I really prefer JJ6L6 one's. They are the best, although there are not many 6L6 tubes available today.
Without complicating about what makes me unsatisfied with tad one's I will simply say they sound dull to me, and they don't perform very well on higher bias setting, plus they were, out of the box, literally on the edge of not being matched pair..
I played with them for about a week, than discarded them for JJ6L6 one's.

Amp I put them in is randall rm50 combo

Good Strong 6L6 Tube
Steven8503, 22.02.2015
I bought a matched pair of these to go in a vintage '68 Fender Bandmaster amp that I just acquired.
There's not a huge choice of 6L6GC tubes out there and my vintage amp needed just that.
The GC's handle more power and these do seem able to take that and produce a smooth rounded tone.
Power tubes are just a part of the equation in a vintage amp, but these are certainly what I was looking for and seem pretty rugged.
Thomann also had the best price I could find.
I've used TAD tubes before in my Marshall DSL40C and they are my 'go to' for power tubes now.
One happy bunny.
