This Black Star Artist 30 Classic 6L6GC Retro upgrade kit is designed to provide you with a tight driving rock sound with plenty of rich sustain. This combination is designed to provide the best clean sound and Classic vintage overdriven sound that is the hall mark of many great American recordings.

The Harma ECC83 Retro provides a harmonically rich and detailed sound with excellent 3D midrange warmth. This valve has a traditional British voiced sound that has a huge singing sustaining tone when overdriven. The outstanding feature of this valve is its smooth linear midrange response and extended frequency response so you get smooth warm overdrive with tight fat punchy lows.

The Harma 6L6GC Retro is modelled on the famous Sylvania STR 387 6L6GC and it shares many of the originals sound features. In clean mode the valve breaks up later than the stock 6L6GC and gives an improved clean sound. The design also has an extended treble response so can provide more clean sparkle also cater for the modern high gain sound.

In the overdrive stakes the Harma 6L6GC-Retro showed it was a real top performer for metal, rock and modern high gain sounds. It provides a nice balanced overdrive sound which allowed clear sustained notes to cut through the mix. It is punchy and well balanced on chords and open voicing. They also cleaned up very easily when using the Les Paul volume control and could provide all the sounds from a nice crunch to all out high gain distortion. Tight well defined bass with plenty of slam completed the picture. This is one excellent modern 6L6GC type for clean through to American Hard rock.
