    Hey guys, I was wondering if it would be possible to use jj KT77s in my archon 25w combo amp. I believe the KT77s draw more wattage than the 6l6s, so I was wondering if the tubes were interchangeable.

    The 25W is 5881. I would suggest that the amp is not designed for the 6L6 or KT77. Not sure if they would work, or if they could cause damage.

    Your best bet would be to email Customer Service. Won't get an answer until next week as I believe PRS is closed this week for the Holidays.

    I have the 25W and it came with 6L6s. Your safest bet would be this.^^^

    When I had an Archon 25, PRS CS told me not to use 6L6s in it.

    Ok thank you. It appears that the older models of the archon 25 used KTT7's, while the newer ones use 6L6's. In that regard, once i'm back in town i'll have to check.
