Our answer to the challange to build the best 6L6 type tube ever manufactured! brandnew in 2021 The TAD 6L6GCM-STR REDBASE is our latest 6L6GC designed and built to claim to be the best 6L6 type tube ever manufactured. A damn high claim, but we are sure that we have achieved exactly that. In terms of sound, the TAD 6L6GCM-STR REDBASE produces the powerful but always defined bass response known from the legendary american built NOS RCA 6L6GC, with clear, unobtrusive and yet transparent highs. In every setting, the TAD 6L6GCM-STR REDBASE responds directly and with noticeable dynamics, from buttery soft and warm to powerful and brutal without losing any details or depth. This makes the TAD 6L6GCM-STR an effective upgrade for every amplifier using 6L6GC or 5881 tubes; also repalces any EL37, CV586, VT115A, 6L6GA, 6L6GB, 6L6WGB, 6L6WGC, STR-440, STR-454, 6p3p, 6p3s, 6p3s-e etc.
