The 6V6 is a low-output power tube (12-18 watts) often used in Fender® amplifiers, including the Champ®,
Deluxe™, Dual Professional, Vibro-King®, Princeton®, Vibrolux® and others. It has a very warm, round and soft
response with rich harmonics, and distorts easily. One of the best choices ever produced for rehearsal and
recording amplifiers. Available as singles, pairs and quartets; stocked in “medium” power ratings. Also
available by special order with “low” and “high” power ratings (please contact customer service for these).
Classic design and the most affordable choice in the GT 6V6 line. Warm overdrive and soft distortion character.

“lows”; for more dynamic headroom and tighter, quicker and harder overall response, we suggest “highs”.
Lows and highs are more likely to require re-biasing by a qualified service technician to meet your
