I bought a GTSS for a GZ34 and plugged it into my 6545.
The amp was a little louder, and a little chrunchier when cranked. The tone was a little colder to my ears. Big difference in loss of compression.
I only had the GTSS in for an hour before I put the GZ34 back in. Somehow I find the amp is a little sweeter sounding with the tube rectifier.
It's all personal taste. Some people notice a difference and some don't. Buy one, stick it in and try it.
I think these are good to have as a back up for your tube. Small enough to throw in your guitar case, more durable that an extra tube, and mine was affordable at $22 cnd. Easy to swap into your amp in a pinch.
This section of my website was updated with cleaner charts and was put into the latest version of the Tube Amp Book, the hard cover coffee table version that also has the CD with about 800 amp schematics - www.groovetubes.com/product.cfm?Product_ID=2065

GuitarZ: Idiot! I wanted to put a little air on my Zoom H1's circuit board to clear out any residual Deoxit from spraying the input connector. Guess which can I picked up to spray. Yup! Not the air can.
