Pretty much ok. They're 27 watt tubes, so bias accordingly.

Just make sure that they will physically fit into the sockets. I bought a set once for my amp and it turned out that the distance between the sockets wasn't enough to get both large bottle KT-66s plugged-in.

Been using KT66s in my '66 Pro Reverb for over seven years now. Sound great!

I have been a fan of the tungsol KT 66. They drawer less current than the standard KT 66 acording to the tube store. I have tried them in my 67 super reverb, modded bassman 50 Blackfaced and AA864 and in that amp with a bias of 33MA it is spectacular.

I also had run some original genelex KT 88 in my 67 super reverb for over 20 years at home with no problems.

Run them in my Vibroverb, no issues since 2007.

I have a Bantam bass amp (1970 30watt Fender) that has 2 KT66 tubes. I bought it with them already in there but it originally used 6L6's no problems with it. I wanted to try them in my '67 Bandmaster but that style of head cabinet is too shallow -same as a Dual Showman or Bassman of that era.

Hi, it's me again. The Sovtek KT66s in my '66 Pro Reverb are still loud and juicy.

15 years and still okay.

Just sayin'.

You don’t forget to update a thread, huh?
