    I have to retube my amp, and know very little about 6550s. Any suggestions?

    NOS would be the best but are getting kind of pricey. SED winged C are pretty good for new stuff. You might want to consider KT88's as well depending on your amp and application.

    I bought a pair of NOS GE's for 80 bucks; from a local guy.

    what is the difference in sound between the 6550's and kt88's? I've got a NOS tung-sol and anoher NOS 6550 labeled RCA (looks like the ts with a different label) in my traynor bassmaster and my clean tone is amazing. What are kt88's known for?
