Tung-Sol KT-150 Tube
New designs from Russia's premier tube inventor are direct replacements for KT-88s and 6550s. Tthe brand-new KT-150
is a massive tube capable of 70 watts of plate dissipation. In September of 1950 Tung-Sol introduced the 5881, an industrial version of the 6L6GA with a 23.5 watt plate dissipation, opening the doors to the hi-fi movement of the 1950s. This rugged tube also found a home in the '59 Fender Bassman and servo amplifiers used in B-52 bombers. In 1955 Tung-Sol raised the bar of high fidelity with the introduction of the 35 watt 6550, which could deliver 100 watts with a pair in push-pull configuration. This tube was used in the Dynaco Mark III and Sunn amplifers.
