Musicman 112RD amp needs a replacement tube

Post by Iceman on Sat May 28, 2011 7:26 am

Decided to post a separate thread here, hopefully someone has one of these.

This is my wife's practice amp but one of the tubes may need replacing.

The tube itself is labeled Realistic Long Life and also 6L6GC. I can find listings for that "part?" number online but it appears that tube is made by many manufacturers from many countries. I am unsure if the specs would be the same based on much of the talk I am reading on many of the amp forums I have been combing for information.

Does anyone have any thoughts? Please share.

From what little I know of amps (read: "bugger all really") the 6L6 is a very common tube and should be easily available. "Realistic" should be Radio Shack's white label brand so it could have been made anywhere. I believe these days you'll find most come from Russia, and the old Soviet eastern bloc countries. The Chinese are into it too of course, but I understand the quality is "iffy".

Hi,

I would recommend Tubes from Russia (SOVTEK, Svetlana) or the Electro Harmonix (Which are mostly russian anyway).
Other good brand would be TAD. It's a german company called Tube Amp Doctor (TAD).

The chinese stuff... NO
