TAD 6V6GT matched pair
The 6V6G (T) was initially developed by Ken-Rad and Raytheon in 1936 as a smaller version of the 6L6 especially for use in (car) radios to replace the 6F6 pentode. The 6V6 beam tetrode is still used in many smaller guitar amps and also used in modern headphone amplifiers as the output tube.

The T behind Glass G indicates that this is the smaller glass housing (T9)

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 6V6GT, we also sell a premium 6V6GT / CV511 from Genalex and 6V6GT’s from Tung-Sol and 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..
