Can I use 6L6 instead of EL34?

Can I use 6L6 instead of EL34?

Can I use 6L6 instead of EL34?

You do have to change the resistors. EL34 is way different for bias voltage than 6L6.

What’s the difference between 6L6 and EL34?

6L6 tubes are a size designation for vacuum tubes that were originally invented and marketed by RCA, the Radio Corporation Parent tubes, it’s more fundamental about what sort of flavor of tone you want. If you think about the classic EL341 guitar tone, an EL34 guitar tone is a particularly British guitar tone.

Is 6L6 the same as 6L6GC?

5881 vs 6L6GC Valve/Tube. RCA’s first version of this tube was an early ‘octal’ base tube. You can immediately notice that the 6L6 and 5881 are in the same family of valves. They are part of the general evolutionary process for this particular valve. So they are similar, but not identical tubes.

Can EL34 replace 6V6?

I wouldn’t use a 6V6 in place of an EL34, because it might not survive very long. Two better choices would be KT77 or 6CA7. Even if you swap out EL34 for EL34 tubes, re-biasing is highly recommended as cheap insurance against nasty, deadly side effects of imbalance or overload.

Can you swap 6L6 for EL84?

yes, not only are the tube sockets different, but the 6L6GC sockets are physically larger, meaning you’d need to cut larger holes in the chassis to accomodate them.

Are EL34 and el34b interchangeable?

They are indeed equivalents.

What tubes are interchangeable with 6L6?

For the most part, 6L6 tubes are interchangeable. The 6L6 along with the G, GA and GB are all rated to the same 19 watt plate dissipation with 360 plate volts. This one is a GC with 30 watts plate dissipation and 500 plate volts.

How many watts is a 6L6 tube?

Power output 55 W
Anode resistance: (anode to anode) 5.6 kOhms
Anode voltage 450 V
Anode current 2*54 mA

Can you swap 6L6 for KT88?

You really ought to increase the power of your output transformer if you’re going to move from 6L6 to KT88. a pair of 6L6 generally puts out about 35-45w. a pair of KT88 is about double that. that’s great if you want to increase the wattage of your amp, but be sure your output transformer can handle it.
