Figured this might be the best thread to ask this.
I have a Vox TB35 which is running 4 6v6s.
The stock power tubes gave out and I've started looking into replacements.
Could I swap the quad 6v6s for one pair of 6L6(G)s?
The amp being cathode biased, it it a direct swap or am I missing something?

Just to ask.....I am redoing my Ampeg VT-22...I could just buy two pairs of 7027a's instead of a matched quartet? AND would this run on 6l6gc's?
