RE: New Russian Tung Sol 6V6GT best sound? NOT

It has been posted here many times by our old friend Poindexter that in his very highly developed push-pull amps (the "Musical Machine") he found the Tung-Sol reissue was the "best" tube. Many others agree.

So your post's title is a bit misleading. There may be other tubes that are "better" in SE applications - but that BY NO MEANS invalidates what Poinz and many others said. And possibly in a different SE circuit or at different operating voltages, currents, etc., the Tung-Sol would perform better in your opinion, I don't know.

So maybe a more concise title could be "New Russian Tung Sol 6V6GT best sound? Maybe NOT in every circuit".

That's my opinion anyway, FWIW.
