Product Description

Sovtek 6L6WXT+ Matched Quad. Get the best this is the + version

The Sovtek 6L6WXT Matched Quad are solidly made and the W denotes the ruggedised construction that is used in this top quality valve  This improves their lifespan and reliability in service.

We stock the “+” version because it has much better tone and amp tech reports higher power output – up to 60 watts out of what normally was a 40 watt amp.

How do they sound?  The honest answer is that Fender’s Groove Tubes 6L6’s* are actually this valve re-branded. They give and amp that distinctive warm rich sound and they break up in a very controlled fashion.

The Sovtek 6L6WXT features larger plate dimensions and improved grid structure for increased power handling capabilities. It also features mica spacers with metal springs to eliminate tube rattle and microphonics. Sovtek claims it has 20 percent higher output than their 5881WXT.

This is not a repackaged 5881 tube. Extremely low noise and a lack of microphonics combine with excellent ratings for detail and harmonic content to provide a tube of exceptional quality. These tubes can be used in any application. Plenty of power and great tone. We have tested these tubes with plate voltages ranging from 425 to 500 volts without problem. Biasing can be set from conservative to hot; again, no real problem and great tone will be delivered from most settings.”

As these are high power valves it is strongly recommended that the bias is checked when inserting in your amp.The valve life can be severely reduced if the bias is not set correctly.

 

The Sovtek 6L6WXT Matched Quad are factory matched and further tested and  matching is refined  by us. We issue a test certificate with each set which shows the matching. y. Product is manufactured by Sovtek in the Russian Federation. You will receive four matched valves.

"Excellent service as always, the 5751 tube has made a huge difference to my amp, taken the fizz it had when cranked away. Sounds perfect" M.T 16th June 2020
