6L6 – Do Power Amp tubes make any difference?


Do different 6L6 tubes (and equivalents such as the 5881) make any sonic difference? We try 3 sets to find out.
1:59 – 6L6CGM-STR Ruby pair
2:59 – 5881 Ruby
4:29 – 6L6GC-GE Super Premium Groove Tubes

ZILLA CAB GIVEAWAY:- https://www.facebook.com/zillacabs/

The guitar parts used are from me, the track is as yet untitled but may be released in future.

The guitars were recorded through my Peavey 6505+ converted from the 112 combo (and modded a bit) on red channel, with a BOO Instruments OD808. (green channel for the clean section).

The Cabinet used was a Zilla Fatbaby 1×12, and the Microphones used were an sE Electronics VR1 Voodoo Ribbon and a Shure SM57.

NO EQ WAS USED AT ALL. No compression, no nothing. If you want to EQ your guitars to fit into a mix, that’s understandable but we wanted you to know what they sound like straight off the desk.
