Here’s one of those ‘standard’ 6DJ8 tubes that out performed many of the higher end tubes. Here’s what Joe had to say about it…

I agree. These Holland tubes seem to really bring it in most of the sonic range. They’re not quite as dimensional or dynamic as some of the uber tubes, but if you’re looking for outstanding value – these are it.
