    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.

    I always use mine with 6L6s and EL-34s but I will try 6V6 someday.

    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!
