The GT-5881C Power Tubes Duet features a Groove Tubes exclusive high-power 5881 "short bottle" design. This is a very high-vacuum tube, the GT-5881C is very stable. This tube type gives you a sweet tone and defined character that was a mainstay in the Fender tweed era amps of the 1950s and early 1960s. The tube's short height allows for easy use in rackmount-style amps. Available in pairs.
