tubes for svt-cl

Discussion in 'Amps and Cabs [BG]' started by fruitysquirts, Mar 24, 2009.

  1. Im looking into buying my friends SVT-CL. He actually has it loaded with guitar tubes at 25 watts a piece. so it only runs at 150 not 300. I've heard him play it numerous times and it does sound fantastic.

    what are some great sounding tubes? what tube type is for this ampeg model..6550?....what about something else?
  2. i know someone has some info for me?

    Yeah, the CL usualy has 6550's but some guys use KT-88 power tubes instead.

    Does this amp have EL-34 power tubes now?

    I like the Winged "C" 6550 / JJ preamp tubes in mine.

    +1. IMO winged C 6550's are great tubes for a CL (or any SVT for that matter).
