Probably about 15-20 watts. Maybe a 6v6? Probably still at about 7-8 watts.
I wondered why the frisbee was getting bigger, then it hit me.

You can put 6L6s and just about any other tube you want in this. It goes as low as 4 watts I think. It's also not cheap.



EDIT:The power output depnds on what tube you put in it. (But I'm fairly certain a 6L6 will put out more than 5 watts.)

The Blackstar HT5 nails the 6L6 sound with help from the ISF dial.

A 6L6 puts out approximately 25 watts.

I haven't seen the inside of a lot of old tube amps but I don't think I've ever seen a 6L6 amp that didn't have them in pairs.

This is true, 6l6s are more commonly used in push pull, assumedly because the aim of a single ended amp is to keep volume down.

You CAN use one, but it would put out a lot more than 5w. The VJ/champ circuits could be built around a 6l6 if you had the correct output and power trannies. The VJr does need an octal socket added, but that isn't too hard if you are prepared for the subsequent biasing and slight fiddling. My advice would be, just go for a 6v6 instead.

What are you using the amp for anyway?

A 6L6 puts out approximately 25 watts.

In class A/B, fixed bias, push/pull circuits.

In single ended, class A, cathode bias circuits, it puts out 8-12 watts.

Like the Electar Tube 10 or the Epiphone Galaxie 10.
