Lady I just talked to at the tube store just said this...but I have a hard time believing it. Confirm/Deny?
jj tube in general are pretty dark, and the 6l6GCs are no execption, I never tried the TAD so I cannot acurately awnser your question, but I would bet the the TAD are a brighter sounding tube.
