Sovtek 6L6WXT+ Power Vacuum Tube
Modeled after the vintage RCA 6L6GC "Blackplate" the Sovtek 6L6WXT+ features larger plate dimensions and improved grid structure for increased power handling capabilities. The 6L6WXT+ also features mica spacers with metal springs to eliminate tube rattle and microphonics. The Sovtek 6L6WXT+ yields a 20% higher output than the Sovtek 5881WXT and offers superior tone and overall performance.
Working through 6L6's and 5881's in my much maligned old JTM30 - these provided much warmer fuller vibes over the NOS US made Tung Sol 5881's and not as noisy either. I always have TD do the burn in for me.

Put a pair of these in my '72 Silverface Bassman, replacing a pair of Sovtek 6L6WXTs. I was a little surprised, there really is a noticable difference between the WXT and the WXT+. Sounds a little sweeter, some new harmonics at higher volumes that wasn't there before.

I recently installed a quad of the Sovtek 6L6 WXT+ tubes in a Peavey 5150 II. These sound great and are an excellent replacement.

These are now our go to 6L6 for all new products and amp repairs. Low microphonics, great power, great tone.
