What's the difference in tone between 6L6 and 6V6 tubes?

    Interesting that this thread is bumped, I recently acquired two pairs of 6V6 in a tube bundle and tried the vintage set in a Redplate Blackloop last night; replacing the 6L6. I didn't think they were night and day different until I used the low power switch, then they started cooking. Much more raw sounding OD at reasonable levels. I then changed the Scumnico to to a Weber 12A125-S (small 1x12 combo), which added to the rawness ... in a more random distortion, heading towards tweed (rather than blackface) kind of way. Sounds fantastic.
