Read complete review

This tube is unique among the current production 6V6 offerings. This can be good or bad depending on your needs. To me, it's a very good thing for two reasons.

1. Rugged build. The JJ 6V6S is a very robust tube with it's rugged construction and spiral filament. It is widely reported that the JJ's can take higher voltages than the others. This is a very good thing when installed in my Tweed Deluxe clone or a Deluxe Reverb. Those amps are especially hard on power tubes. While I love the sound of the Tung Sol Reissue tube, for example, I do NOT love having one blow after a month or so of service. This has happened to me twice. Maybe just a bad batch, maybe not.

2. Sound. The JJ tube is a little bigger and the sound is a little different than the other current production 6V6 tubes, a little more 6L6 like, as others have stated. If you are a stickler for vintage correct 6V6 sound, then this is probably a bad thing. But it is an especially good thing for me in my Tweed Deluxe clone ( only 12 watts), especially on a gig. The JJ 6V6S tubes are a little bigger, bolder and more aggressive sounding than the other offerings. They cut through the mix a bit better. They break up a bit later and stay more clear when overdriven, with a little less of the mushy compression that is characteristic of the 5E3 circuit. In addition to going to a more efficient Celestion Blue speaker, the switch to the JJ 6V6S tubes has helped my 5E3 Deluxe make the transition from bedroom/studio to the gig. I love that.

I purchased 2 separate JJ 6V6's for use in my single ended class A amplifier. The stock Ruby tube sounded OK and I tried EH tubes which sounded even better. I decided to try JJ's because I'd heard they were better built and more robust than the others. WRONG. Both JJ's failed within 10 minutes of use. The amp is new and biased correctly for 6V6 tubes. The JJ's each made a crackling sound and fizzed out in the same manner. I won't buy JJ power tubes again. I've had good success with their preamp tubes.

      Comments about JJ Electronics 6V6 Power Vacuum Tube:

      I got about 500 hours out of this same tube before it started going out (making random noises). So that's about a year for me. I use it in a VHT Special 6 (one power tube), so for me changing the tube once a year just before our church Christmas program is easy to keep track of.

      The sound of this brand was better (in my mind) than the stock tube.

      Comments about JJ Electronics 6V6 Power Vacuum Tube:

      I record my practices with a 17 piece modern big band and the quality of my sound is making me very happy.
      My Fender Princeton 65 Reissue never sounded better. It came with Groove Tube whites and they sound great. Then one went bad. So, I put Groove tube reds in it and thought all was well until I decided to try JJ's out. The JJ's made my amp sound quite noticably better. They are not as loud as the reds, but that is good. I have more head room and the bass is cleaner. My overdrive pedals (Timmy, Lovepedal COT 50 and Zendrive) all sound better now. I will keep using these in my rig. I am also going to try a Bill M. TO20 output transformer. Can't wait until it shows up in the mail.
      I just got them.
      Pretty cheep for what they did for my sound.

      Comments about JJ Electronics 6V6 Power Vacuum Tube:

      These tubes are dynamite. They can withstand plate voltages up to 500 volts which is in the range of a 6L6GC.These tubes are, BOTH PHYSICALLY AND ELECTRICALLY very much like the legendary westinghouse 7951A. Head room and detail. MADE for Fender amps. These and the 6V6EH are the only new made 6V6 tubes i will use.

      Better than NOS

      By TheWoolyMammoth

      from Undisclosed

      See all my reviews

      Comments about JJ Electronics 6V6 Power Vacuum Tube:

      I have tried various NOS 6V6 tubes in my champs and super champs: RCA Silvertone, RCA, Sylvania, Tung Sol... Also many new production tubes: EH, Ruby, Tung Sol and the variation/selections of these from: TAD, GT, Mesa etc... The simple truth is that the JJ tubes sound better and are more consistent tube to tube with less noise than all of the tubes I have tried. I did find a single RCA Silvertobe Tube that was just magical but the other two of the same tube were no good even worse than the EH GT tubes I had. So I now whole heartedly recommend the JJ 6V6S tubes ( note JJ tubes of other kinds may not works well for you; for example I do like the Tung Sol new production 12AX7 tubes better than the JJ 12AX7 tubes). Also life and resilience has been very good with these tubes. Give these big bottles a try. They do have more headroom so that may not be your thing but worth a try in my book as it is the only 6V6 tube I now use.

      Great tube - really a 7591

      By Marco

      from Baltimore

      See all my reviews

      Ask me a question

      Comments about JJ Electronics 6V6 Power Vacuum Tube:

      its a 10.
      Its really the same uprated, Industrial strength tube as the old Westinghouse 7591. Those are the ones Neil Young Likes to use in his Tweed Fenders and they operate under more like 6L6GB conditions.This JJ is rated for 450 volts in fact, and if you compare it to one of the old Westinghouse tubes you'll find they are made almost identically. Good on JJ for reproducing some great old American tubes **(the new jj 5Y3GT, 6550 AND EL844 tubes are obvious nods to GE)** instead of making the latest "'mullard" or "'Telefunken" comparison. If you want a 50's style 6V6GT you cant do bettter than the Electroharmonix reproduction of the CBS Hytron, for a 1960's"Blackface"era 6V6GTA, do the Tungsol and for the baddest early 70's distortion monster - 7591, uprated 6V6, the JJ cant be beat. HIGHLY recommended. No need to even consider NOS or 50 year old 'vintage" tubes if you dont want to anymore.
      Made as well as a 1970's Westinghouse
      r u kidding? JJ are probably the best value of all new tubes

            Comments about JJ Electronics 6V6 Power Vacuum Tube:

            SNAKEBITE, I think your problem started with rebiasing your amp. I'm not sure what the Plate Voltage on your amp is, I think it's close to 410V. Most amps running 6V6's the bias should be around 19 to 23 mA. I think what you did was over stress the B- plates its no wonder the tubes are failing. Infact I'm supprised either tube is still working. A true testiment to their quality. Please rebias you amp closer to factory specs and then try again.

            Comments about JJ Electronics 6V6 Power Vacuum Tube:

            These tubes were suppose to be a "Matched" pair. I put them in my Fender Super Champ XD, and set the bias to 40 ma. Things start out OK, but after a good Rif, one of the tubes starts drawing too much current and gets Red Hot while the other tube does not. It doesn't matter which socket it's in, the same tube takes off when playing through the amp. I can't even use them!

            This tube really cleaned up the sound for my little Fender Champ 600. Not that this amp pushes sonic extremes, but it certainly help give the Lil' 600 a clean, brighter distortion in the higher registers of volume. Sounds really good with my Russian EH BigMuff, too!
