So what are you guys using for new prod. 6v6's in your deluxe reverbish amps? I need something that can take the abuse of near 420 volts on the plate. I have a few sylvania and rca pairs that work great...but i'm looking for a new production pair I can beat on for practice and save my old stuff for recording/gigs.

I'm assuming the JJ will come up alot. Anyone dare try the tung sol RI in these? I love the 5881's, i'd really like to try the 6v6.

a couple of tube vendors have said the Tung Sol is the best new production 6V6, so I'm gonna test a pair in a week or so

my tech likes the EH, although he says it sounds like a small bottle EL 34 -- that could be good or bad, depending on your taste. The Tung Sol is supposed to be more like an old 6V6 tone wise.

New Tung Sol's for me. The JJ's add some volume and clean headroom but lose the sweetness. The TS sounds very close to my NOS RCA 7408's.
