Delivers a warm, round tone that "sweetens" any guitar amp design. Extremely consistent from piece to piece, the Sovtek 5881 is one of the most reliable current production 6L6's available.
Full size base for easy installation in vintage amp designs. Chances are if an amp uses 6L6-style output tubes, it has Sovtek 5881's in its sockets.

I bought these to swap out the stock tubes in the ART Tube MP Studio Mic Preamp. in comparison tests on a neo 2488 (in 24 bit recording mode) using a new mxl 67g, the stock tube was precisely the same on vocals. I did not test on anything else. So in my humble opinion, these tubes provide no more "warmth" or "presence" for the mxl 67g using the ART Tube MP Studio Mic Preamp than the stock chinese tubes that it comes with. The upside is that i have back up tubes if i ever need them. I didnt expect miracles. the ART Tube MP Studio Mic Preamp is a $30 preamp. But i have to admit i expected some noteable difference. Even slight. But there was none.
This tube was standard in a bass amp I bought,and the amp sound is excellent.The tube wore out so I replaced that one and bought a spare.Has a nice round low end,highs not harsh at all,and no distortion.Excellent for bass amps.
