Some tube history about Mesa's 6L6GC STR454

Post by KA1J » Fri Feb 08, 2019 10:51 pm

I'm curious about the 6L6GC STR 454 tube series. I came into a set along with the amp and they sound really nice, much more full than the Electro Harmonix 6L6EH that came with the F-50. Not that the 6L6EH don't sound good, they do, I just like the STR 454 for the sound I'm looking for. I talked with Mesa and they told me those weren't the tubes that came with the F-50 and they don't have any but they're available elsewhere.

I'm curious, what amps did these come with and why are they no longer sold by Mesa?

Is there an older tube they are similar to?

Thanks!
