These are the best 6L6 type tubes I've ever heard, in both my buffer and in a preamp usage as well. I bought them previously tested at 42/25, and 40/25, and Ive only put 50-100 hours on them. These are also some of the highest strengths for a matched pair you will find online for this price, but ebay is your best bet if you're in the market for good tubes. Tube depot sells these for 250US EACH, so $240CAN for the pair is a good deal.
I guarantee you will not find better 6L6 tubes, new production or old, that beat the quality of these guys. EL34 Blackburn Mullards are the best in quality and musicality for the EL34s Ive tried, but are second to these in my opinion. Obviously this will depend greatly on your type of preamp/amp/buffer as well, but Ive tried new and old 6L6G (C) tubes and these are simply the most detailed yet musical. If your gear can handle multiple varieties of tube type, or just the 6L6 type, dont look any further for a better tube all around.
The pair of Tungsol 6L6GC platinum matched were used for about 500-600 hours, so have between 90-95% left on them, and are atleast burned in. They are much better than the Tungsol 6L6GC-STR, so I recommend not wadting time or money on the STRs. I was much more impressed with these, and are great value. Best new production 6L6 Ive used. Paid $160 new, selling for $100.
Finally Ive got an older pair of USA Sylvania 6L6G coke bottle/frankenstein style tubes, from the 1950s or 60s. They were purchased used, but havent seen too many hours since I bought them. Im guessing 75%-80% left. Paid $130 the pair, will sell for $75.
I'll put a great price together for all of 3 pairs.
NOTE: Recently I've been offered unreasonable amounts for these tubes. You want cheap and half used,, go to ebay!
