Like I said in the title, one of my 6L6s is bad and so I run in half power mode all the time. I want to replace all of them with something new and am looking for suggestions.
Since the U+ has so much gain and compression I was thinking maybe something more open sounding would be interesting. It has Rubys in it now.
You might try the Sovtek 6L6WXT+. It apparently offers ~20% more output than the regular Sovtek 5881WXT, might add some headroom.
