6550 Tubes

6550 Vacuum Tube from BOI AudioWorks Original pear shapaed 6550 tube was developed by Tung-Sol back in 1955. Other US manufacturers such as GE and Sylvania produced 6550 tubes also, but with straight bottle.

As such, 6550 tube has been the designer's choice in high power audio amplifiers in USA for decades. Notably, 6550 tube was found in the most powerful of the amplifiers such as Ampeg SVT, Harmon-Kardon Citation II, and Audio Research VT200 to name just a few. 6550 tube represents the All American high output tube sound.
