Red color code has highest headroom, White will breakup sooner. Keep in mind you will probably never see a Brown or White color code...

That said, Red, Yellow, Green, and Blue - I have yet to meet someone who, in a controlled test, can tell the difference between color codes. Especially since our power sections are designed to stay cleaner, longer - you won't notice the breakup characteristics until the power section is pushed hard.


Good to know. thanks for the clarity. So what you are saying the Reds are a colder tube than say the blue or grey. And the difference between the red to blue is not very much. Aside from the breakup character, are there any tonal differences?

Reds draw the least amount of current. Breakup character is not perceptible, except -perhaps when pushed REALLY hard...The range ALL of our color codes fit into is VERY small. There is absolutely no tonal difference or otherwise.
