    Can't wait for the review! He suggested that I try them in my Bassman LTD, to lower the clean headroom. I'm debating whether to sell the amp or keep it. It'll never be my main amp, so it's just a luxury item at this point.
    If you play guitar chest-high, you play from your heart.

    If you play guitar waist-high, you play from your guts.

    If you play guitar low, you play from your huevos.

    While I haven´t used that particular tube, I can tell you the TAD stuff is really great. And they´ve been really good to me as a customer ever since I gave Ruby Tubes/ Magic Parts the boot... Great guys and good products for fair prices: what more could I want?

    BTW, I´m assuming you all mean Tube Amp Doctor, a company based in Germany

    I'd like to know how the TAD's compair againist JJ's? I've got a JTM45RI
    that just fell into my possesion. I'd love to lose the 5881's in it for a
    pair of KT66's, But that's a Lil' pricey for a Amp that I don't own. Maybe
    the TAD 6L6 small bottles would fit the bill?

    The TAD 6L6WGB's are going to sound pretty good, but nowhere near KT66's I don't believe. I'd say they're closer to 5881's than KT66's.

    I have a set of KT66HP's from groove tubes that are really nice tubes. Not sure where they are made though.

    Scott...I bought the small 6L6s,as I wasn't sure on what to get? Seems the smaller tubes are more popular,have had more reviews,and have been around longer than the bigger bottled TAD 6L6s?

    They weren't that expensive,so I thought I'd try them out myself...

    whats the difference between the big and small bottles?

    i remember the old coke bottle 6l6's that were great. they broke up early and had a great bluesy tone, unfortunatly they broke easily and wore out quickly but it was a nice tone

    generally speaking the big bottles like the RCA style ones get more headroom and breakup late. More of a clean tube the big bottles are!

    I'm trying to remember this so I don't get it crossed, but I think the big bottle ones are supposed to be copies of RCA's and the small bottles are supposed to be copies of the GE's.
