What plate load range do you think this tube will be "happiest" with, 6.6K/7K or 4K/5K?
How many volts are the plates and screens rated at?
How many watts can we realistically expect from a pair?
Thanks for the heads up!

I wouldn't have tried these before, but now old Doug has got me thinking.
It the old Tung Sol tube was 100, what would these tubes rate with reliability not taken into account? Tone performance only, just your take Doug.

God, I love the originals.....a better output tube for my TopHat Super Deluxe does not exist.
The new one looks cheezy.

A dumb Q, for Doug and others ... I have zero tech knowledge.
Is a 5881 a member of the 6L6 family, like KT66s?
In other words, can an amp that normally takes 6L6s or KT66s be adjusted to take a 5881?
What would sound different with a 5881, and what would need to be modified in the amp?
Pardon my ignorance, and thanks for replies...
I'm guessing he wants em "relic'ed". Maybe they look too new. Crazy how new things tend to do that.Originally posted by Roccaforte Amps
Looks cheezy? Its damn near exact. You try them and see what you think, I'm impressed, and I stock hundreds of the originals.
