  • Don't be afraid to swap tubes in your vht special 6

    Had a couple of old rca black plate 6l6's and a bunch of 12ax7. Used the Rca and a slovtex 12ax7 man what a difference. I thught it sounded good before but now wow.

    Heres the response I got back from vht when asking about tubes. They replied within 24 hours.

    Thank you for your interest in VHT. The Special 6 output tube socket is wired with pin 1 (EL34 suppressor grid) tied to ground, leaving many options for tube experimentation. Although the power transformer's heater-current capability is stressed with larger tubes like a 6550 or KT88, we have successfully thermal tested the Special 6 with a wide range of output tubes. (The socket wiring is not compatible with a 7027, please don't try!). We will also released the Special 6 EL84 Adapter (model AV-SP-AD) to allow for even more tube experimentation.

    Best Regards
