This Raytheon made 6V6GTY is the original USA made Raytheon which was branded by Heintz & Kaufman in the USA and is very rare nowadays. These are the early production item with the brown micanol base and smoked glass. The micanol was a special heat resistant base and the smoked glass was in fact RF shielding which was used to prevent hum.

The GTY is the special military version that was mainly used in communications equipment

These are an excellent sounding 6V6GTY as they were made to replicate the original RCA 6V6GTY.

The Raytheon produce a clear and open sounding Treble. The valve, like the RCA ,puts more of its distorted sound through the midrange . This results in most harmonically rich and creamy overdriven tone. I like the fact that is a cleaner than the RCA when distorted and has slightly less top end bite

The sound is very close to the RCA 6V6GTY and the extra clarity is reason why they have become very sought after over the years.

We have only a handful of this classic valve in singles only. Ideal for upgrading Fender champs and any amp using a single 6V6GT
