      I use either EH or Sovtek 6L6 in my Soldano and they sound pretty good. The last time I retubed though I put a set of Sovtek 5881 in there and they sound about the same but seem a little beefier in the low end.

      I like them. They even make a RI of the GE tube - or did. I'm not sure if they still do or not, but shortly before Aspen sold the company to Fender, he bought out the last GE equipment and started re-issuing them.

    I like the TAD 6L6WGC-STR. They sound pretty close to NOS GE 6L6s to my ears. And, they tend to like a colder bias than most other 6L6-types of tried, which should translate to longer life.
