    Could these tubes be used in an SVT of some kind? I'm trying to assemble the parts to make one and I've got a deal for free tubes.

    You need 6550s or some people have used KT88s, but I don't think they're designed for 6L6GCs.
  3. SVT's used 6550's . 6L6XX don't have the plate dissipation for SVT's. Fender Bassman 200 or 300 do if you want a real challenge? :)

    Thanks guys. Bassman does sound interesting, I think I will pick these tubes up, surely there is a place for them somewhere.
  5. Free good tubes will always have a place for them! :D Fender, Mesa, Marshall...... If you don't want them tell me how to get them :)

    Just a Craigslist find, there's only 6 of them. If I find massive quantities, TB will be the first to know ;)
