Please read the terms & conditions below before confirming that you wish for us to including a Plek setup on this guitar.

If you choose to return the guitar after it’s had a Plek setup you will still be liable for the cost of the plek setup except for in cases where we’ve offered it as part of a promotion or offer.

The popular TAD 5881WXT is a very dependable 6L6GC type valve with a more modern and aggressive character. It has slightly less power than a 6L6GC but has a special bite in the upper mid range, which allows your sound to cut through on stage. The 5881WXT is used in many of the recent Fender amps, but it is TAD's recommendation for hard rock and low-tuned guitar playing.  It is also used by Engl, Mesa Boogie and many others.

Another advantage of this valve is that it is part of TAD's Premium Selected series. All power tubes labelled as such have passed the following tests:

  • Plate Current (PC) and Amplification (TC)
  • Low Noise Test
  • Microphonic Test
  • Sonic Tests
  • Shock Tests
  • Listening Tests
  • Shorts & Leakage Tests 

This pair is part of TAD's Premium Matching range, which means they have identical Plate Current (PC) and Transconductance (TC).

Hard Rock!
