Amps with a 4×6V6 power tubes

I like amps with a 2×6V6 power amp, they are my favourite tubes ! I'm curious to see what's avaiable with a quad of those shot glasses.

Do you lads know any ?

Fender Showman have 4 6L6. I think they can be easily modded to use 6V6 tubes. An over-driven showman is a fantastic sounding amp!

Bugera 6262 features 4 6L6, which could also be converted i'm sure.

And LOUD. I saw Dick Dale play a few years ago and he was using two of those f'ers through two 2x15 cabs and it was the loudest show I've ever been to in my life. And I've seen Slayer, The Ramones, Black Flag, Metallica - you get the idea. LOUD!

Mesa MKV has 6V6/EL34 capability out of the box, but comes stock with 6L6's.
