Topic: Tubes question
For my electrically-minded friends:
I need new 6L6s due to a freak accident that occurred while loading out for rehearsal. Groove Tubes have several ratings for their 6L6s...low, medium, and high. They state that the low rating is dynamic and breaks up earliest, which is best for blues solos and such, the middle rated are, well, in the middle, and the high rated ones stay clean at higher outputs and are best for bass amps and jazz guitar.
I use a lot of distortion but I don't want my amp to clip unless I hit the little button by my foot....so for that criteria I'm expecting to purchase the high rated tubes. Is that correct?
Also what's with this rating system? I figured a tube was a tube was a tube. (Unless it's one of those vintage Sovtek fellas.)
