          The EXCELSIOR COMES STOCK WITH TUBES FROM CHINA. actually for my needs (early electric blues, they sounded pretty good. I never had JJ'S before, usually TUNG SOL and the other higher end tubes.. but i kept reading BOUT jj's.. jj's this and JJ'S that.. ordered a matched pair and the amp was transformed.. in fact the sound was so musical i took out the mullard pre tubes and replaced them with the original chinese tubes, now i have the perfect sound for my needs..i play solo and every little change helps... this was a big change my guitar goes to "elite" cable with nothing else in the path.. now my guitar tone and volume changes allow me to zero in on the sweet spot before it was just balls to the wall.. incidently the GT's ive been using have had durability problems. the twin i use to own use to eat GT'S like candy.. the bias was in range but they would get noisey, pop crack and then POP. THE gt's I had in the Excelsior sounded pretty good but lost one of the 2 6v6's after 6 weeks of normal medium volume playing. I remember when gt's were a good sounding solid tube.. i don't know whats happening with them but don't care now that I've latched on to JJ's

          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!

                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.

                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!

                      Comments about JJ Electronics 6V6 Power Vacuum Tube:

                      I bought these to replace a pair of E/H that came with a Fender Super Champ XD from 2007. One of the E/H was arcing.

                      JJ is sort of a standard in tubes, and I could see no harm in buying a matched pair.

                      The amp is a wee bit stronger now, maybe. All the "amp sound" in the Super Champ XD is really in the preamp ( the power tubes are said to not be pushed all that hard ) so so long as they can be clean, they seem to work. The E/H were a bit underbiased.

                      This amp may have had a marginal contact from the digital board to the rest of the amp - there's a dual row connector ribbon cable from the digital board to the rest of the amp. When I reassmbled the amp, it made no sound and would not repsond to controls. I used contact cleaner ( Caig ) to clean this, and haven't had trouble since. I have to wonder if what I thought was tube arcing wasn't a marginal contact from the digital board - the E/H seem to work fine as well.

                      I've been playing the same Les Paul through the same Laney amp for 15 years or so. I switched out my 6L6s with these JJ 6V6s, and I was amazed what a diffrent sound they brought. Natural compression on the big power chords, lots of harmonics and lots of sustain. With the volume way up, the sustain rings out with 150% more harmonic ambience than before. Just like all my favorite classic rock records. I wish I would have done this a long time ago... as I used to really have to bang on my guitar to get a lot of these sounds that just come flying out of it now. It would have saved many years' wear and tear.

                            Got the JJ 6V6 power tube to replace a failing GT6V6C in my Fender Vibro Champ XD. Sounds great and suites the little 5-watt amp perfectly. Musician's Friend had this in stock and was shipped qickly and safely in a well-packed shipping box.

                            I installed this tube in my 1964 Fender Champ.This tube produces more volume than most NOS tubes. It sounds clear and glassy until over driven then it has a nice bite to it. I do not like EH 6V6 tubes and the JJ 's make the EH tubes sound so bad. So if you have a choice go with the JJ's.
                            I bought this tube from amazon once and received it broken , they refunded my money, but I noticed that the glass is very thin. The NOS tubes have thicker glass. So that is the reason I gave it a 9, if it had thicker glass I would give it a 10.
                            Good bang for the buck.

                            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.
