Product information "Old Style 6L6WGC-STR BLACKPLATE GE-Style TAD PREMIUM Matched"
The TAD 6L6WGC-STR is a remake of the small bottle GE6L6GC and has the same warm lower midrange and silky top end as the classic GE versions of the 1950s and 60s. Like the historic RCA 5881, this tube features exclusive blackplate anodes and a side getter. The TAD 6L6GC-STR and the TAD 6L6WGC-STR have our exclusive black-plate desings, gold grid wire, double getter construction, no-noise filaments and 1.2mm thick heavy duty glass. This tube is only 80mm high (without pins) and can replace 5881 or 6L6WGB tubes.
 
No longer in production since 2019 and will unfortunately never be able to be produced again in this way.
The very last reserves are now for sale.
 
 
The Classic Sound of the 1950s and 60s - Excellent Tone, Maximum Lifetime!
The perfect choice for vintage tweed and blackface amps such as the 1960 Bassman, Twin, Showman or Super Reverb. The complex midrange and sweet heights are a class of its own. The TAD 6L6WGC-STR is our recommendation for classic tone with warm cleans and rich, sweet mids when pushed. Great for fat jazz or blues tones.
 
 
 
If it ain't NOS, then it must be TAD!
Tube Type: 6L6/5881

When does a tube become a Premium Selected tube?

Power tubes
All power tubes labeled Premium Selected have passed the following tests:
-      Plate Current (PC) and Amplification (TC)
-      Low Noise Test
-      Microphonic Test
-      Sonic Tests
-      Shock Tests
-      Listening Tests
-      Shorts & Leakage Tests
 
Premium RT-Matching of Power Tubes
Our Premium Matching is an exact matching of power tubes with identical Plate Current (PC) and Transconductance (TC).
 
TAD Premium Selected tubes are guaranteed for a period of 6 months (according to terms of warranties)
for the quality criteria mentioned above.
Preamp tubes
All preamp tubes labeled Premium Selected have passed the following tests:
-      Low Noise Test
-      Microphonic Test
-      Gain Test
-      Sonic Tests
-      Shock Tests
-      Listening Tests
-      Balanced Output Test
 
 
Premium Selected
We call the tubes SELECTED which have passed above tests and thus qualify as reliable all-round tubes of their type.Typically this is around 30-60% from a batch that receives the SELECTED label from TAD.
For applications in particularly sensitive functions such as V1 or input stage with combo amps, V1 in high-gain amps, tube microphones and phono preamps, we recommend using the respective HIGHGRADE selection
 
HIGHGRADE SELECTION
But only those tubes which pass these tests best are labeled Highgrades.Typically this is approx. 3-10% from a production batch that qualifies for the HIGHGRADE rating from TAD.
Due to the very high selection requirements, this article is temporarily only available to a limited extent! Please note our shop-information on availability.
 
Matching and Selecting Options for Preamp Tubes
Matching in Pairs for preamp tubes means that two tubes show identical gain, hence, four characteristically identical systems.
This matching method includes our Balance-Selection. We highly recommend this matching method for hi-fi systems.
 
TAD Premium Selected/Highgrade tubes are guaranteed for a period of 6 months (according to terms of warranties)
for the quality criteria mentioned above.
