I'm sure there is far better option going the kt88 route as far as current production, although I did kinda want try some and see for myself if the new 6550s are as bad as people say?

It there a newer KT88 that has a more forward low end like a 6550 but with the awesome mid-range like the kt88? lol, kt88 low end is no where near as forward to me as 6550s its still big don't get me wrong but I think its a bit tighter. Or better yet anyone know what current production 6550 that has good mids?

just want to confirm this thread is in the right forum....

as to how it sounds, that pretty subjective...

i made 2 guitar amps, one had el84 finals and the other 12w6, guess what the guitarman chose?

to me they sounded the same....

you are wrong, the guy went for the 12w6, he liked it better than el84....what i am saying is that is is all about individual preference....

as much as the preference thing may be, I like a lot of different tube types just for what they are pretty much lol, but I like uniqueness too though and certain ones just don't sound like anything else.
