      Let me start this off by saying these tubes in my opinion are amazing. The best 6l6s ive heard and used to date. I tried going back to jj 6l6s and after using these rubys they make the jjs sound dry. The rubys have way more bottom end. The cleans also sound better on the rubys. Not to mention the rubys price is great. They also dissapate heat way better. My jjs got really hot which can cause big problemsas to where the rubys maintaned a hot but consistant temperature and it didnt get too hot. Hands down i wouldnt go with any other set of power tubes in my peavey. These are the best.

      Got these tubes and put them in my amp. Tried to set the bias and one tube immediately started redplating and drawing a lot of current. Put the old set in and will be returning these. They where a good price ,but if they are not burned in or tested I guess not so much of a deal.Will always buy from a tube dealer who tests and weeds out the bad ones before shipping them out and possibly damaging your amp.

        Comments about Ruby 6L6GCMSTR Matched Amp Tubes:

        I use these in my Bugera 6260, big improvement over stock. My favorite tubes are JJ 6L6, but the pins are usually just a little too small and do not make a real solid connection in my amps, may just be Bugera's power tube sockets are a little big.

        These are a close 2nd to JJ's for me and for the money: about fifty per Quad.

              I have a Peavey Classic 212 VT Series amp and man I love the warm tone that tge ruby tubes put into it. I mainly play SRV a little blackfoot and zz top amd those tubes man they just help me get out the tone and the feelings that i put into those strings. Cause you cant just play music, you gotta feel ot and the sound of the ruby tubes help you feel that vibe.

                    Don't know yet about life span, but these sound great in my 1970 Fender Deluxe Reverb. I've used Groove Tube, Electro Harmonix and Sov Tech. The Rubys stack up well against them.

                        The tubes are fine. Paid for ex shipping and the boneheads sent them ground. They showed up 5 days after I needed them. Good tubes but nothing will I purchase again from MF.

                          I bought the Ruby's based on the price and value. Under any other circumstance, I would have preferred to have bought the Mesa tubes but I am a little short on $$$ these days and had to cut a few corners. I have used this product before and it's decent value for the money. Recommend to anyone using a tube amp that uses these kind of tubes and is on a tight budget. Thanks for reading!!

                            Noticeable positive difference in headroom and warmth of tone to my 5150 ll as opposed to the sovtek's and jj's I have used in the past.
