JJ 6V6 in Egnater Mod100

Post by lebobl » Mon Nov 04, 2019 6:07 pm

Anyone here rocking JJ 6V6 in their Egnater Mod? I am considering them in part because the 100 watter is brutally loud with 6550s. Also, I've always enjoyed the tone from my Crate Stealth 50 combo which employs 6V6 tubes. Would love to hear some opinions from the group! Thanks!

Never tried them in a MOD100 but sounded good to me in MOD50.

From memory, these are the tubes to be biased no hotter than 18-22mV and only use JJ.

I'm not sure the volume went down my much tho'

I had them in my Mod50 and sounded good. I believe JKD has the bias numbers correct.

Thanks, guys! I can't even turn my master volume up much past 9 o clock right now with the 6550s. Hoping I might get a bit slower taper. If I have the module volume past noon, it gets blazingly loud quickly. Hoping as well to get a bit more softness and compression, and a bit less hardness. Probably going to wait and see if there's any Black Friday deals from any tube dealers.
