    I will replacing the tubes on a Univox 1061 Amp. They are 6l6's. What tube manufacturers would you recommend using?

    Go to Antique Electronics:
    and look for 5881 - RUSSIAN MARKED 6N3C-E in the "Russian tubes" section.
    These are military-grade 5881s,wafer-base,similar to those full-base Fender-marked Sovtek 6L6s you see everywhere....BUT much better and at a fraction of a cost!
    These tubes have more headroom,clean and lifespan than any other similar (modern) products,no matter how are branded and how much mumbo-jumbo is written about them.

    I've got Svetlana 6L6s in one of my amplifiers- they sound great. Some people really like the JJ Electronics 6L6s too.

    I have Reflektor/Svetlana 6L6 in my Mesa 400+, and I think they sound pretty good. They were suggested by Lord Valve to me, and I think he made a good suggestion.
