Product Details

Sovtek KT88 Vacuum Tube Quartet Platinum Matched
The Sovtek brand of military grade vacuum tubes are made in Russia and considered to be among the finest currently available. The Sovtek KT88 was designed to offer the highest output power and the most reliable, linear performance available in a KT88. The unique tri-alloy plate structure yields higher minimum plate current and higher transconductance while improving heat dissipation and reducing tube warm-up time. Its triple-carbonate Oxide Cathode allows the Sovtek KT88 to operate at full power for extended time periods without failure. These improved characteristics offer increased power output, higher amplification factors, and more precise tube matching with minimal drift while still maintaining tonal clarity. Matching power tubes for equal current draw is important for maximum performance. Sovtek's platinum matching process consists of a 24 hour tube burn-in period followed by a bias (plate) current measurement in milliamps to ensure accurate matching.

Sovtek KT88 Vacuum Tube Quartet Platinum Matched
Sovtek KT88 Vacuum Tube Quartet Platinum Matched is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 2.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from MehI have a quad of these for my Bob Latino Dynaco ST-120. Running these tubes at the recommended bias, 2 of them would red plate some. Replaced those tubes with a new set and the same thing.Now I will admit they sounded good but Iam not to keen on my tubes running red.I replaced them with a Quad of Electro Harmonix 6550EH and all is perfect with no red platting.Dont know if its the tube design or what but these Sovtek KT88's overall did not seem to like this amp.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from What a great set of tubes!Fantastic tone, lots of reserve power, very clean mids and highs, and powerful bass. These tubes don't run with red plates as some of others do. Very fast delivery and great service once again from Parts Express!
