Steve Nathan Posted October 9, 2016 Share Posted October 9, 2016 Well it looks like I have to replace the power tubes in one of my 122 amps, and I'm out of my spare old Winged C SED 6550s There are a few online places that I'm not familiar with that claim to still have matched pairs. The price is of course higher than the last ones I bought but if they're truly NOS, I don't mind paying the premium as long as they're what they say they are. But in the meantime, I want to ask here for opinions. Murph (the legendary tech) suggested I try JJ KT88s. Anyone use these? As I've said around here before, I love the old SEDs because I can hit them really hard and the breakup is awesome (Deep Purple awesome), but they never "smear" and the low end always stays nice and tight. The little bit of reading about the JJs (on Guitar forums mostly) makes me think they might be too loose on the bottom for my tastes. Thoughts? Don't rush me. I'm playing as slowly as I can! http://www.stevenathanmusic.com/stevenathanmusic.com/HOME.html https://apple.co/2EGpYXK Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
