you completely forgot kt88's and kt66's, and that 6L6's have a bajillion different types, like groove tubes for bluesy jam stuff and other 6L6's (name pending, lol) for 5150 and high gain mesa type stuff.

but overall, good job, lol.

I didn't forget them. I just didn't have any to test. If you or anyone else does have experience with these, let me know and I will add them to the list.

ive got a groove tube matched quad of KT88s powering my VHT pitbull 100UL.

the things are beautiful. crystal clear cleans. pure power most amps or companies dont support the KT88 due to its high output. they usually output 50W per tube. but the cleans you get are amazing. if you have good preamp tubes your distortion will be insane and when you get KT88s to distort the distortion is so nice. but you have to bias them hot so they can distort. if they are not biased hot they will NOT distort. one con to them is they cost almost 300USD for a matched quad.

That's good, but I'm trying to show the differences between brands and not tube types. What kind of 88s do you have and how do they compare to other brands?

there is one company that makes KT88 but nobody here is gonna drop the cash to buy them. ive used them once much too expensive

they are Genelex KT88s and they are a lot better then groove tube. but look at the price

GT-300 for matched quad
genelex- 400 per tube.

but if you want the goods you should check out tubedepot.com

they sell everything. thats where i buy my tubes. but i buy in bulk. like thousand dollar orders. but i dont use cheap ass tubes either. i use groove tubes in some amps. but any amp that has EL34s in it. i use Mullard XF-1s.

and preamp i use telefunken 12ax7.

the mullards are 300 a tube and OMG sound awesome they are really smooth sounding. but Really hard to find and tubedepot is the only place to get them.

and the telefunken 12ax7s go for 150 a tube. and are increadible. really powerful

El34s are one of the reasons to Marshall's signature sound.

I would say that's not true. What makes the Marshall sound is the circuit, especially the tone stack. There have been Marshalls that run on 6l6s and KT88s that sound every bit as marshally as the El34 versions. Jimi Hendrix ran many of his amps on KTs and don't tell me that isn't the classic Marshall sound.

agreed... but I can also tell from the tone that's it's not just as "el-34-ey"- there's a glassiness there (i think hendrix ran some of his marshalls on 6L6's/5881's too) that you don't really get with the el34's.

bit of both.

So I heard that KT88 has a more POWERFUL sound, what does that mean ??

Just more midrange ??

No. Not at all. The 12AX7s tend to fail a lot. They do sound good, at least the ones that work.

oh
then what el34's do you recommend for marshalls?
i dont know why, but my tsl with JJ e34l's have horrible bass, and if i run it in low gain, it sounds dull and boring.
i want tubes that would sound good with low gain and also high gain.
i think i have svetlanas before my JJ's, and i used to have like 2x more gain than before, and the crunch channel was actually useable, but now i avoid it, because the crunch channel is really bad. it doesnt even crunch, its just a distorted moan.

id suggest E34Ls i have them in my JCM 900, it used to sound a bit weak, and the clean channel broke up easily, which i didn't like, and the distortion was a bit too grainy, not the cleans stay clean, unless i don't want them to, and the distortion sound 10x better, i don't know how to describe the difference, but its phenomenal. i really reccomend them
