6v6

I am wondering how these tubes sound/general tone characteristics of this tube. I saw Ryan Adams on MHD and he was playing through a BF Fender Princeton (sounded great). Don't the Princeton's have 6V6 tubes? He was getting a nice clean sound and a decent crunch. How are these compared to EL84s?

Thanks for any info y'all can give!!!

The Princeton runs a 6V6 power section, but if RA was getting decent crunch it was probably a Princeton Reverb.

Fender Deluxe, Deluxe reverb, both use 6v6 tubes. You will generally get a rounder tone with more bottom end that you would with EL84's

The circuit's more important than the tube, but Fender Deluxe Reverb, Princeton reverb, Carr Slant 6, Tone King all have 6V6's.

Softer sounding, great mids, little less highs than 6L6 or EL-34.

Hope this helps a little, Dana O.

If you like great rich cleans, but like just a little 'hair' on them... silky highs, loose low end, then you'll love 6V6s.
