Product Description

The 6L6B is perhaps the most reliable of the currently made types of 6L6s, with slightly less power and a more aggressive edge when pushed into distortion. These are currently used for the GT Fender amp tubes.

6L6 Type (typical power ranges from 20 to 25 watts)
The Choice of most all medium powered Fender amps, and the many Fender "wannabe" amps. This specially designed pentode with a beam-forming electrode was invented by RCA and has many variations available. Its response is rounder, with a more pronounced midrange character, very chesty, and very old time rock 'n' roll.

The Groove Tubes Warranty
Preamp tubes: Warranted to be free of burn out, excessive noise, or microphonics for 180 day from date of purchase.

Power tubes: Warranted to be free of burn out for 90 days from date of purchase. If one tube fails, the whole set will be replaced to ensure proper matching.

GT-Solid Rectifiers and Substi-tubes: Warranted for 3 years from date of purchase.

Customer Reviews
4 out of 5 (10 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "If you own a tube amp you owe it to yourself to try Groove Tubes as an addition to your over all TONE TUBE SETS!!!!!!!"
Sound: It sounds just like it was graded to be. It will never be an RCA BLACK PLATE or an old 5881 because it can't. Good for old rock sounds. I use Fender Twin reverb 1973 and a 1484 Silvertone Twin Twelve 1965 Not sure of what will make it better but the system works on grading and that is all it supposed to do and give you better and more consistent reliability and it DOES just that! Feature: Purchase a variety of grades for compression. I wish you could purchase these at more local shops for a decent price. I wish you could purchase mixed hardness sets for a variety and a price break. I wish it had the wattage capability for the tube set you buy. Quality: Great guarantee, best in the business period! Product in perfect condition each time you get them. Value: Compared to the new old stock, you are really just paying for warranty, service and consistent quality grading. Most of the tubes are made in russian and china, they are tightly tested and graded so the customer does not take a risk.. GREAT IDEA!! Manufacturer Support: GT is the best to deal with when it comes to tube purchases period. No JUNK ALLOWED the others are I hope I get lucky and get a good set and hope they last and sound good. With Groove you know what you are getting. The Wow Factor: Great look, everything about a tube you could want labeling is perfect, it shows the quality dedication to the actual product. Overall: Wish I had a brochure of all the products so I would know what other products I could purchase
Style of Music: All styles, self styled guitarist, instrumentalist guitar player-Classical, Jazz, rock , heavey,

1. zZounds offers the industry‘s most musician-friendly payment plans

zZounds offers a variety of Play as You Pay installment plans that allow you to get the gear you want today. While our competitors might offer house credit cards that require you to fill out an application and pass a credit check, our payment plans are easy to get, simple to use, and, best of all, accrue zero interest. Unlike those house credit cards that can leave you vulnerable to exorbitant interest charges once the promotional period ends, we never have and never will charge interest when you take advantage of one of the zZounds Play as You Pay plans.
