    Getting a bug to try different power tubes in my lil dsl15c.....any recommendations ?
    The ri tung sol sounds interesting also the jj 6v6...from descriptions. It's got the factory TAD 6v6s now.
    I know I like ri tung sol 6l6gt-str not sure how their 6v6 is.

    I just got in the mail today a new set of Tung-sol’s. I haven’t tried them yet. I wasn’t sure what to get either, but I gotta start somewhere.

    I have no clue either. I’m used to 6l6’s in Boogies and then I just buy Mesa Boogie replacement tubes.

    I’m not sure what’s in the dsl 15 now. I just got it a couple of weeks ago and thought that I better get some replacements just in case.

    I’ll let you know.

    Wait,.....I thought you had a Dsl5 @Timmy51, did you have a Dsl5 before you got the Dsl15?

    I still have a Dsl5cr. I just recently bought the 15. About two weeks ago. I sold my Origin 5c, I couldn’t get on with it.

    the jj 6V6S tubes are interesting. larger than most 6v6. didn't like the one i had in my champ (a little too much grit) but for your purposes might be nice
