The Sovtek 5881 delivers a warm, round tone that “sweetens” any vintage or modern guitar amp design. Chances are if an amp uses 6L6-style output tubes, it has Sovtek 5881’s in its sockets. Built to rigid military standards, the 5881 will tolerate higher voltages than any other 6L6. The ruggedised construction ensures long life even when amps are lugged around from gig to gig. In fact, they’re frequently used as replacements for the old 7027 model in vintage Ampegs. Extremely consistent from piece to piece, The Sovtek 5881/6L6WGC is probably the most reliable current production 6L6 available. Used by Marshall, Soldano, Solo, and others. The Sovtek 5881 has a heater voltage of 6.3 volts at 0.88 amperes. Maximum plate voltage is 250 volts while maximum plate current is 73 mA.
Manufactured in Russia and are brand new. . They are matched at the factory in Russia and we have verified they are a good match using our test equipment which was made in the 1960’s . We optimise the matching through mix and match as required to assure you of a well matched pair .Each set will come with our test certificate in addition to the factory test results on the boxes.
Be assured you can use these valves in 5881 and 6L6 sockets. This valve is identical to the Sovtek 5881 except that it has a much thinner and neater base
We ship them very carefully packed and the price includes 2nd class postage in the UK. You can upgrade the delivery at checkout for a very modest cost 🙂
You will receive four matched valves
We have these in stock in Yorkshire in the UK
We also offer a 120 day from purchase warranty on the product ( excludes user caused mechanical damage failure and incorrectly set bias ). Make sure the bias checked and set correctly.
Note: Valves use high voltages and these voltages are dangerous. The amp can still retain these high voltages for some time even after being switched off. If you are not sure of fitting them , please seek the services of qualified personnel
