The Tung-Sol KT120 is a new valve which has a rated plate dissipation of 60 watts, which makes this the most powerful output valve in the 6550/KT88/KT90/KT100 family.

The Tung sol KT120 gives exceptional results as it is very hard to drive into distortion.
The valve produces a very deep and musical bass response and has produced outstanding results. The KT120 is pin compatible with 6550, KT88 and KT90 family of valves and can be used with the correct bias adjustment being made to your existing amplifier.

If used to replace existing output valve such as 6550, KT88, KT90 ,KT100 in audio or guitar amplifier circuits two important things to be taken into account.

The KT120 does draw higher filament current (up to 0.3A each valve). So you need to check with your amplifier manufacturer before substituting with KT120 that your amplifiers transformer can cope with this extra current requirement.

Its height when installed in the amplifier is around 4.6 inches tall (114 mm) and the width is around 2 inches (52mm) it is therefore on average around 15mm taller than the Svetlana winged C KT88.
Therefore the clearances will need to be checked to insure these will fit into your own amplifier in terms of both height and width.

Based on our early findings this valve should provide exceptional audio performance and long term reliability.

Due to the Tung-sol KT120 outstanding level of performance the giant American Audio Research Corporation is using the KT120 exclusively in all it new power amplifiers. This valve has the potential to be the new power king for both audio and guitar amplifiers of the future.
