6V6 Tube Choices:
I prefer the TAD 6V6 for its warmth, smooth compression, and balanced top end.
The JJ brand 6V6 is another acceptable choice. The JJ 6V6 has a bigger, fatter sound
than the TAD, but is a bit less lively sounding, and has a more muted top end. It
sounds a bit more like a 6L6 than a 6V6
