    Yeah I had the 5881's in a RI Bassman a few years back (had that amp redone PTP) they sounded purty good...
    I've got Tung-Sol's staight across in my Oldfield Club D'Lux ( BF DR clone)...sounds MTY good...hmmm

    Not too hard to find. But they are the best sounding tubes for that amp.

    I think you'll be suprised by how good the new TS 6L6GC STR's sound.
    I also have them in my Weber 5E7 Bandmaster with 3 original Jensen P10Q's. And they don't break the bank.[​IMG]
