    I have a set of NOS Tung Sol 6v6's I'd like to put into a Super Champ. Will they be able to withstand plate voltages in this amp? I'd hate to blow them up!

    Answer - probably. If they glow red when you put them in, turn it off.I just installed some NOS GE 6v6 in mine, they sound great. I've had a few different tubes in mine without any issues.

    When I had mine I swapped sets of 6v6's a couple of times with no issues at all. I say go for it.
