TAD 6L6GC matched pair
The 6L6GC was the first commercially available beam powertetrode under license developed by RCA in 1936 when the Marconi Valve Corporation qualified developing its own beam tetrode commercially as not feasible. The 6L6 was a great success for RCA and a year later Marconi came with her first beam tetrode the KT66.

The Tube Amp Doctor, or TAD for short, in Germany, selects and tests vacuum tubes since 1993.
Founded by Andreas Hecke, TAD offers individually tested and, if desired, matched and/or balanced tubes at an attractive price.

In addition to the TAD 6L6GC, we also sell a premium 6L6G wide body from Tung-Sol and the 6L6GC version from Electro harmonix.

Matched tubes
This set of tubes is matched. This means that the measured values of the tubes fall within the same range and thus perform equally.
This is important for two reasons:
1. To obtain the same gain factor per tube.
2. For the same amount of quiescent current per tube.
The first requirement speaks for itself and the second requirement prevents the one tube where a higher quiescent current or bias is needed to make it work in the linear region will also be worn out earlier. Both new tubes and our NOS tubes can be ordered separately.
