JJ 5881 Matched Pair
Our JJ 5881 Matched Pair are rich sounding valves.. All our valves are tested by us and matching process is done by hand for the best quality. We also have these valves factory matched and we refine the process. We issue a test certificate with the matching results We test using voltages found in amps.
The 5881 Matched Pairs from JJ Electronics are a par of 23 watt tubes and are rated for a maximum plate voltage of 400Vdc. The 5881 was introduced to the market back in 1954.
The many amplifiers that have higher plate voltage but use a tube rectifier can use the 5881 Matched Pairs from JJ Electronic without issue. A prime example is the ’59 Bassman LTD. However it is also critical to re-bias the amp heeding the 5881’s 23W rating. This will provide a vintage tone and less clean headroom. Leaving the bias set to a 6L6GC setting and/or using the JJ 5881 in a high voltage amp with a solid-state rectifier, will likely cause problems and are not covered by warranty.
The JJ 5881 is excellent value for money
