The best guitar cables will have a solid insulation using a material that wont allow this interference into the core of the cable. The job of your lead is to get the signal from your guitar to the amp without anything any contamination, so you need a material that conducts electricity very well. The high end and studio spec guitar cables will be made from oxygen free copper or silver, both of which are great conducting materials.
But if what you want is the closest thing to the original RCA 6l6 clear top, there are a number of other 6l6 tubes you may also want to give a listen to. Groove Tubes makes a clear top GT 6l6GE, Sovtek has a clear top Tung Sol 6l6GC STR and Tube Amp Doctor also sells a clear top Chinese made TAD 6l6WGC STR. These are long plate, high output tubes, but they come in medium size bottles; and they have the clear top, side getter construction of the original RCA and GE 6l6's. The TAD and Tung Sol versions have the "black plates" the RCA tubes had; and the Groove Tubes version is mostly American made. But the tube with the best tone is definitely the TAD 6l6WGC STR. The TAD is a nice, warm tube with a sweet, silky high end. To me, it is the perfect choice for a vintage series Fender amp, like the Super Reverb.
Guitar Wiring Explored – Switches Part 3. Here, we look at the third and final kind of mini-toggle switch, the "ononon" switch. After showing how the connections are made within the switch, and seeing the two types that can be found, we look at two uses for the switch: firstly to create a seriessplitparallel switch for a humbucker, and secondly to use the switch as a three-way pickup selector.
Guitar Wiring Explored – Switches Part 2. In this article we look at a new kind of toggle switch – the "onoffon" switch. Having understood that, we look at how we can use this switch to split a humbucker to either coil, or use it as a regular humbucker, all on the same switch.
