The Ruby 6L6GC-MSTR is from the Shuguang factory. It's thicker glass envelope and sturdy construction is designed to work in the most demanding applications. They are packed with lot's of punch and a sweet sweet tone, very musical. Philips STR-415 copy. This is the same tube Mesa relabel's as their STR-440's.
- Egnater Tweaker 40 Review by Steve
I want to thank you for the excellent recommendation on replacement 6L6 tubes for the 40 watt Egnater. The Ruby 6L6GCMSTRs sound perfect. The two tubes were very closely matched and the resulting sound is really excellent.
The packing for shipment was solid and the box arrived quickly. Can't ask for more!

- Mesa Boogie Dual Rectifier Roadster full retube Review by Cameron
Played the amp last night for several hours after changing the tubes. I just wanted to thank you for putting together a great tube swap for a great amplifier. My Mesa Roadster sounds fantastic! It is very quite and has a very pure tone. I was able to really dial back on the gain and get some amazing tones with less noise. I'll be honest, I was a little hesitant to order non-Mesa tubes, but I'm glad I did! The reviews on forums and on your website can be believed and I'll order from you in the future. Thanks!

- These tubes really bring this head to life. Good gain, good warmth, and great punch! I just bought another set from Doug even though I'm not ready to swap yet just because I don't see any reason to go with anything else. Great tubes! (Posted on 3/24/14)

- RUBY 6L6GCMSTR (4) Mesa/Boogie Roadster Review by Chris UK
Just retubed my amplifier and first impressions it sounds fantastic, a bit more tweaking and I`ll have it sounding amazing.
Recently fitted the preamp tone pack (6) coupled with the power tubes this amp now sounds excellent. Great gain tone, notees are clearly defined and with a wall of sound behind you, the leads are amazing singing.
Anybody reading this and are unsure about purchasing these tube kits, rest assured you`ll be amazed whatever style of music you play, I mainly play rock/metal so went with the recommended descriptions.
Thanks to Dougs Tubes (Posted on 5/9/13)

- Peavey Ultra retube(with the 4 x 12AX7 tone kit) Review by Jamey
So I finally got a chance to put in the new "tone kit" and power tubes today... and I must admit I was pretty skeptical that there would be a noticable difference. I am glad to say I was dead wrong! The clean channel is much more vibrant and lush with a really nice "fenderish" bite and lots of clean head room. The crunch channel sounds pretty much like it did before (which is a good thing because that was the best part of this amp), and now the "ultra" channel is MUCH more articulate... less muddy and just really freeeeeeking great. You da man. Please feel free to share my testimonial for all the other Peavey Ultra owners out there. You rock!!!!

- Peavey Valveking VK100 Review by Tyler
The tubes sound beautiful, pretty much exactly what I was looking for. For the money, with a small investment in tubes, I am very pleased with it. Also very pleased with your service and will recommend you to anyone I know needing tubes. Thanks again!

- Sansui AU-111 stereo amp from late 60's, (Ruby 6L6GCMSTR's matched quad) review. Review by Steve
- I wanted to bring this amp back to the unmatched quality and tone range as when new. These tubes have done that in spades. Seems to have perfect tone balance and really spectacular headroom. I installed these tubes after a complete rebuild of all capacitors and many non-precision resistors, etc. Amp is absolutely dead quiet at full volume with no input. Thanks Doug for your recommendation that I go with these tubes. (Posted on 9/2/12)
