Sovtek 5881/6L6WGC Matched Quad
The Sovtek 5881/6L6WGC Matched Quad delivers a warm, round tone that “sweetens” any vintage or modern guitar amp design.
If an amp uses 6L6-style output tubes, it most probably 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.
